Easy spicy nut noodles:
Saute 1 chopped garlic clove, with a teaspoon of chopped ginger in 1 Tablespoon of sesame oil. Add 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce, 1 table spoon brown sugar and a 1/4 cup of Pierre's Spicy Almond or Peanut hot. Stir together adding 1-3 tablespoons of warm water from the noodle pot until you get a nice paste.
Add buckwheat noodles, linguine or other just cooked noodles to the pan and toss until well coated.
Enjoy. Garnish with grilled shrimp, julienned carrots, cucumbers, chopped scallions, chopped peanuts to taste. Or just eat straight for a simple meal with protein, healthy fat and carbohydrates.
Or even simpler noodles, Pierre likes to just use the spicy peanut from the jar with a couple of tablespoons of warm water and chopped scallions. Instant dinner.
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 can of coconut milk
1 onion, sliced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2-3 tbsp of Pierre's Almond or Peanut Butter
salt and pepper
Season chicken with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large Dutch oven or pot, drizzle olive oil and heat on medium-high. Brown chicken on both sides for about 5 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from pot and place aside on a plate to rest. Add sliced onion and minced garlic. Saute for about 5 minutes. If there are bits of chicken stuck to the bottom of the pan, add 1/2 cup of water and use a flat wooden spoon to scrape up the tasty bits. Add almond or peanut butter, then return chicken to pot. Add can of coconut milk. Gently mix ingredients. Bring to boil and then cover and reduce to a simmer for about 45 minutes. Enjoy with spinach or kale on top of rice or cous cous. Yum!
