Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add the udon noodles and cook, uncovered, for about 10 minutes (according to package directions). Place in a colander and rinse with cold water, draining off the liquid.
  2. In a small dish, make the dressing by whisking together the vinegar, orange juice, agave nectar, soy sauce, sesame oil, peanut butter, ginger, garlic, and crushed red pepper.
  3. Transfer the rinsed, cooled noodles to a large mixing bowl. Add the dressing and toss with the noodles. Add the snow peas, carrot, and green onions and toss again. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
  4. Chill until serving time.

Notes

Variations: Add 8 ounces of cubed tofu (pressed, for best results) or one 15-ounce can (1 ¾ cup) of drained and rinsed, no salt added beans, such as adzuki or kidney, in step 3.

Use rice noodles instead of udon noodles to make this gluten-free.
