Steps

One Pot Peanut Noodles

  1. Place all of the ingredients in a large pot or Dutch oven. Cover the pot, and bring the liquid to a boil.
  2. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 more minutes. Every 2-3 minutes, stir the contents of the pot so that the pasta doesn't stick together.
  3. Cook until the liquid has been almost entirely absorbed by the noodles and both the past and the vegetables are tender.
  4. Garnish with scallions, bean sprouts, roasted peanuts, Thai basil, and cilantro. Serve warm with lime wedges!
