Equipment

Ingredients

  • 3 large carrots julienned
  • 1 red bell pepper julienned
  • 3 cups water
  • 450 g package Bucatini or Spaghetti whole grain or gluten free if preferred

For the Sauce

  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 large lime juiced
  • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp sriracha or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger

Instructions

Instant Pot Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine all your sauce ingredients, using a fork to help incorporate the peanut butter. Set aside.
  • Turn your Instant Pot to sauté mode, add a tablespoon or two of water, the carrots and red pepper and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Then add the sauce and 3 cups of water, and give it a stir.
  • Break your noodles in half and place inside your Instant Pot. Make sure they're covered with the water by gently pushing them down with a spatula if needed. Close the lid, and turn the valve to seal, set to high pressure for 4 minutes. (It will take about 10 minutes to build pressure before the pot begins couting down.)
  • Quick release, add your green onions (reserving some to garnish if desired) and give it a stir. Serve garnished with chopped peanuts, green onion, lime wedges or more sriracha if desired.

Stove Top Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine all your sauce ingredients, using a fork to help incorporate the peanut butter. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet, add a tablespoon or two of water, the carrots and red pepper and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Then add the green onion, sauce, and half a cup of water and let simmer for another 5-10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water a boil, and cook your pasta according to package directions. Drain and return to the pot. Then pour your sauce mixture over your pasta, mix well, and serve.
