This is what I would consider to be a comfort food dish. I threw it together in the midst of a craving for a peanut sauce, and it certainly did quench my desires!
Creamy, spicy peanut sauce with a touch of sweetness, drizzled over brown rice noodles topped with a perfect blend of vegetables--it is amazingly delish!
If you're looking for something satisfyingly filling, and healthy to boot, look no further!
This spicy peanut noodle bowl is sure to please your senses...
