Let me preface this recipe by telling readers a little-known fact: These peanut noodles are incredible! They take less than 30 minutes to make and they are 100-percent vegetarian and vegan. You might feel the urge to leave out the cucumber and scallions, but trust me, they add a great crunch and flavor to the dish! Serves four.

2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 cucumber, diced
4 scallions, sliced
Method:
Cook the noodles in a medium saucepan.
Drain, toss with oil, and let cool.
