FAQs AND Questions

How do I make this recipe?

 

Advertisement
  • To begin, bring a large saucepan of water to a boil (yes, this is part of the cooking time). Remember to only fill the pot halfway; otherwise, your noodles won’t fit, which will speed up this process. To help retain the heat, place a lid on the pot and season with a pinch of salt.
  • Include the noodles. The amount of time needed to cook noodles might range from two to 10 minutes, depending on the kind you select.
  • Take this opportunity to chop or break the broccoli into florets. Additionally, prepare the edamame. Add these ingredients a few minutes before your noodles are done, as they don’t need to be cooked very much.
  • Prepare the hot peanut sauce in the meantime. Combine peanut butter, rice vinegar, ginger, sriracha, chili flakes, and soy sauce in a bowl. You can dilute the mixture with up to 1/4 cup of warm water to help the components bind into a uniform paste. In order to prevent diluting it excessively, it is advisable to proceed in modest steps.
  • Drain the extra liquid after the noodles, broccoli, and edamame are cooked. After adding the pasta to the sauce, pour the peanut mixture into a saucepan. Toss everything together over medium heat, making sure the noodles are thoroughly covered in hot peanut sauce.
