Spicy Peanut Noodles

I felt like such the inspired chef last night when I came home from tennis starving…. only to find that I was out of leftovers!  I was just about to run out the door to pick something up, when it hit me—Spicy Peanut Noodles. Granted, I had no recipe and had never tried it before, but I had all the right ingredients. It came out delicious!


  • Whole wheat spaghetti noodlesIMG_0951
  • Cooking oil spray
  • Garlic
  • Thinly chopped veggies (I used red bell pepper, carrots, purple cabbage, spinach and edamame)
  • Dry roasted, unsalted peanuts
  • Tofu (optional)
  • Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette from Trader Joe’s (pictured) or some other spicy peanut sauce


  1. Cook pasta according to directions
  2. Heat oil in skillet.  Add veggies, garlic, peanuts and tofu.  Stir fry for 3-4 minutes, stirring.
  3. When pasta is done, toss everything together!  Add peanut sauce to taste.
