This dish may require a little extra effort but it’s so worth it. Spiralized carrot ‘noodles’ replace traditional pasta in this typical Thai dish. The ‘noodles’ along with other healthy veggies simmer in a Swanson broth-based peanut sauce, soaking up all of the amazing flavors. We think you’ll love these ‘noodles’ so much you may never go back to plain old pasta!

Ingredients

cost per recipe: $5.58

  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 3 ounces mushrooms, sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 medium green pepper, cut into 2-inch strips (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cups small broccoli florets
  • 1 1/4 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth or Natural Goodness® Chicken Broth or Organic Free-Range Chicken Broth or Vegetable Broth
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 8 large carrot (about 1 1/4 pounds), peeled and spiralized using blade with medium holes (about 5 cups)
  • 1 green onion, sliced (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped dry roasted salted peanuts

Instructions

  • Tips

    • Adding chickpeas or edamame to this recipe is a wonderful addition that adds to the texture and heartiness of the dish.
    • How do you spiralize a vegetable?  A spiralizer is a type of kitchen tool that quickly turns vegetables into long pasta-like ribbons.  These veggie "noodles" can be used raw in salads or cooked and used as an alternative to pasta.
  • Step 1

    Heat the sesame oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and cook and stir for 30 seconds.  Add the mushrooms and green pepper and cook for 3 minutes or until the peppers are lightly browned and tender, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 2

    Increase the heat to high.  Add the broccoli, broth, peanut butter, soy sauce and lime juice to the skillet and heat to a boil.  Cook and stir until the peanut butter has melted.  Reduce the heat to medium.  Cover and cook for 2 minutes or until the broccoli is tender.

  • Step 3

    Add the carrot noodles to the skillet.  Cover and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until the carrot noodles are tender-crisp (cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes for more tender noodles).

  • Step 4

    Uncover and toss to coat the carrot noodles with the peanut butter mixture.  Cook, uncovered, for 1 minute or until peanut butter mixture thickens slightly.  Serve sprinkled with the green onion and peanuts.

    I had a box of frozen carrot noodles from Trader Joes and had been looking for a fun recipe to use them in. This one blew me away! It was more prep work than I was assuming, but it was all so worth it! I ended up omitting the mushrooms and adding onion instead and it was delicious! I also added more red pepper flakes to give it some more heat. I am very happy I found this recipe and will make it again for sure!

    I absolutely love this recipe. It's super healthy, flavorful, and sure to please your whole family. I do add fish sauce to mine as it adds flavor and an authentic flair. I've made this with chicken as well and it works beautifully.
