The combination of peanut butter (peanuts being a legume) and udon noodles provide complementary proteins in this quick-to-make entrée.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 10 ingredients in a small saucepan; stir with a whisk until blended. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Set aside.

Step 2

Cook noodles in boiling water 8 minutes. Drain well. Combine noodles, peanut sauce, bok choy, snow peas, and carrot in a large bowl, and toss well to coat.

Step 3

Note: Chile paste with garlic can be found with other ethnic foods in the supermarket. It can be omitted if you perfer a not-so-hot sauce. If udon noodles are difficult to find, try an Asian market.

easy to sub other veggies if you have them on hand, like shredded kale, broccoli or napa cabbage. chicken or meat can also be added in quite easily.

Tasty. Even my meat-and-potatoes-loving son-in-law went back for seconds!

This is a definate do again. Only changes I made were to use 2 tsp of the chili garlic paste, used sweet peas instead of pods (it's what I had on hand) and added red bell pepper. I only used a sprinkle of corn starch and it did not get too thick or sticky. My husband, who generally does not like meatless dishes, didn't realize until he finished that there was no meat in it.

Meh. I was expecting to love this one, but the flavors did not come together.
