(serves 2, adapted from Simply Reem)
It's a very simple and time efficient recipe that only requires one pot - little cleaning up afterwards.
for the sauce:
3/4 cup chopped scallions
1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
3 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
1 tablespoon neutral tasting oil
1/2 red chilli, cleaned of seeds and chopped
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon white vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
salt, pepper to taste, optional sugar
2 servings spaghetti - or soba noodles if you happen to have them, or any noodles
handful cashew nuts, or peanuts, chopped.
bean sprouts, original recipe suggests cucumber, optional.
a few reserved nuts
1. In a jar, place all the ingredients for the sauce. Shake vigorously until combined. Let stand for 15 minutes or more, so that the flavors blend.
2. Cook the pasta/noodles according to instruction on the packaging. Drain.
3. Sprinkle the pasta with the chopped nuts, add bean sprouts if using. Stir until combined. Add the sauce on top, stir for 2-3 minutes to fully coat the pasta - the sauce will be rather thick.
4. Serve, sprinkling with remaining nuts and a parsley leaf.
