Pappardelle with Tofu and Crushed Peanuts

crushed peanuts

I made this vegetarian dish using tofu and crushed peanuts for protein. I also used the scallions growing in our garden.


1/2 pack pappardelle
1/2 garlic head, diced
1 cup peanuts, crushed (use mortar and pestle or food processor)
1 pack silken tofu
1 whole scallion stalk, chopped
sesame oil to taste
soy sauce to taste
fish sauce to taste
fresh lemon or lime juice to taste
sugar to taste (optional to counterbalance the salt for a more Thai style dish)

Bring water to boil in a pot, and cook the pappardelle until al dente. Drain and set aside.

Saute the garlic and peanuts in sesame oil in a large pan, then stir in the noodles and the rest of the ingredients.
