  • ¼ cup Soy Sauce
  • ½ Cup Peanut Butter ( I use organic peanut butter)

  • 5 Cloves Garlic, minced

Instructions
  1. Boil water and cook the noodles according to the package.
  2. While the pasta is cooking. Cut up the cucumber and add the carrots to a large mixing bowl.
  3. To make the sauce add all ingredients to a large measuring cup or separate bowl and whisk until well combined.
  4. Once the noodles are done cooking, rinse under cold water and add to the bowl of vegetables. Pour the sauce over the noodles and vegetables. Mix well until all ingredients are combined.

Notes
I keep my peanut butter in the fridge and usually have to microwave (20-30 seconds) it so that it whisks nicely into the rest of the ingredients.
