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

  • 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® 33% Less Sodium Chicken Broth or Organic 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.
