Szechuan Noodles Recipe


  • 1 box of regular or protein-enriched linguini
  • water as needed
  • kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup of reduced-fat peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of roasted or toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon of teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 2 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon of fine sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon of canola or olive oil
  • 15 snow peas, each sliced in half lengthwise
  • 5-6 shiitake mushrooms, brushed clean, stems discarded, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded, sliced into very thin 1/8 inch strips
  • 1/4 cup of shredded carrots
  • 2 scallions, roots trimmed and discarded, thinly sliced (optional)


  1. Cook the pasta in a large pot of salted water, cook according to package directions until al dente. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process.
  2. In a small pot, whisk the peanut butter, soy sauce, 1/4 cup water, vinegar, sesame oil, teriyaki sauce, honey, garlic, salt, and ginger.
  3. Heat over medium heat and whisk until smooth and warm.
  4. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté the veggies for 5-6 minutes until shiny and slightly limp.
  5. In a large bowl toss the linguini with the peanut sauce and vegetables. Serve hot or at room temperature. If served at room temperature the sauce will thicken.
