Peanut Bliss Noodle Bowl

BY : PUBLISHED : October 23rd, 2013 UPDATED: October 25th, 2021

These rice noodles are a bowl of satisfying peanut heaven. They are so easy to make, use only simple ingredients, and manage to be light yet filling at the same time. You can even make a large batch of rice noodles in advance, then just throw it all together in the pan when you’re ready to eat. Add freshly chopped cilantro, mint, parsley, or basil and make it shine even brighter. Feel free to experiment with the types of noodles and veggies used, but julienning the veggies really brings out their flavor and works perfectly with the taste and texture of the noodles.
