Comment: one one vegan relative tells me these are the best noodles he has
eaten anyplace. I tried various recipes until I came up with this

Place peanut butter in a large bowl. Gradually add hot liquid ( for changes
of flavor instead of chinese black tea try
: cream of coconut, coconut milk, chicken broth) and stir until smooth. At
first it will look curdled and yucky but will become smooth. Add more of
chosen liquid to reach the consistency you want. I like mine pourable like
thick cream. Then add the honey ( btw honey keeps the mixture smooth and
pliable ) garlic, soy, ginger, vinegar ( could be red wine, rice wine,
garlic vinegar, lime juice, lemon juice ) hot sauce, increasing those
flavors you like. The sauce may be covered and refrigerated at this point.
If it thickens under refrigeration just thin with a bit more hot liquid If
you use the cream of coconut which is very sweet you may want to omit the
honey as also with Coconut milk ( liquid from the fresh coconut ) is less
sweet and thick. I personally like the base recipe with the black tea but
people's taste vary . Chicken broth is my 2nd favorite version with the
coconut liquid last. But all three are super.

You may even prepare the pasta ahead of time. Cook aldente and rinse and
drain. Toss with some oil and keep covered until use. Try Chinese or
Japanese types of noodles or pasta for a nice change. Last night I used a
Chinese,creamy white noodle which was great. Then to present: place pasta
on a colorful platter. Now stir in the oriental seseme seed oil into peanut
mixture ( it tends to dissapte and thats why its added just before serving
for best flavor ) Garnish platter with black & white seseme seeds, radish
flowers, green onion curls and chopped cucumber or even baby whole canned
corn . Serves 6
