CEIMB: Aromatic Noodles with Peanut Lime Sauce

The recipe this week was chosen by Supplicious. Head on over to Ms. Bethorama's blog to check out what she and the other CEIMB'ers thought about this dish!

As for me, I am a sucker for Asian noodle dishes. I LOVE THEM! Seriously, love them! This one was no exception, however I think it would be better cold -- and it was definitely better the next day.

I followed the recipe for the sauce -- adding slightly more soy sauce than called for as well as a couple of shakes of sesame oil. Next time around, I may reduce the peanut butter because I thought it was a little too peanut buttery.
I played a little substitution game on the vegetables. I used broccoli, carrots, edamame and snow peas. I tossed in some green onions along with the peanuts at the end. I added some grilled chicken and served it with wheat linguine and thought it was great! I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for picking a great recipe this week!


  1. Hey girl - those are great shots! I loved this dish. Can't wait to eat the leftovers tonight.

  2. Great job! I love the vegetable changes, it makes it more like a pasta salad. Sesame oil was a great idea too.


  3. Oh WOW - how did I miss the edamame?!! That was a great thought!
    We enjoyed this recipe although for added protein, I did scallops in a spicy lime sauce.
    Looks great.

  4. TBH I am not really a huge Asian noodle lover, but I thought these were quite good.

    Glad that you liked it!


  5. Great way to change things up a bit!
    We loved this dish too!

  6. Oh yum, i like your changes :)

  7. I so need to add edamame the next time I make this!

  8. Oh wow, great changes! I felt like this one would be even better with some chicken, and I love that you added carrots and edamame.

  9. Edamame sounds like a great addition to the noodles! Looks great :)
