Recipes

By: Candice Kumai

This sweet, spicy, and nutty recipe is like Chinese take-out that you can make right at home. So, dig in today and save some for lunch tomorrow, homie.

 Ingredients:

1/2 pound whole-wheat spaghetti or gluten-free soba noodles!

1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt

1 tablespoon dark sesame oil

2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, sliced crosswise into 1/2-inch thick strips or 2 savory blocks of organic tofu, cubed

1 1/2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger root

3 garlic cloves, finely minced

Heaping 1/4 cup creamy organic peanut butter or sun-nut butter

1 tablespoon honey

3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 cup sliced shiitake mushroom caps or 1/2 cup dried shiitake mushrooms soaked in boiling water for 5 minutes, drained, and chopped

1 red bell pepper, seeded, halved, and thinly sliced

1 large zucchini, halved and thinly sliced

3 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced

Instructions:

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the pasta and salt and cook until al dente, or about 8 to 10 minutes. Reserve 1/4 cup of the pasta water and then drain the pasta in a colander. Rinse the pasta under cold running water for a minute or 2 to chill the noodles. Give them a few shakes to remove the excess water and set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a large, deep nonstick skillet or wok over medium heat. Add the chicken or tofu and cook, stirring often, until golden-brown on all sides and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.
  • Add the ginger and garlic to the pan and cook until fragrant, stirring often, for about 1 minute. Stir in the peanut butter, honey, soy sauce, pepper flakes, and reserved cooking water and cook until it becomes creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms, peppers, and zucchini. Cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in cooked chicken and the drained noodles and serve sprinkled with the scallions.
