This pasta dish is reminiscent of Asian cooking and includes a peanut sauce that is spiced with cayenne pepper and curry powder. This works well as a side dish with beef or as a complete vegetarian meal.
  • 1 lb GF spaghetti or linguini (or rice stick noodles)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp peanut oil
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • ⅛-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 Tbsp GF tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp rice or apple cider vinegar
  • ⅔ cup all natural peanut butter
  • 1½ cups GF broth (beef, vegetable, or chicken), hot
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Cook pasta according to directions. Drain, keep warm, and set aside.
  2. Heat oils in a saucepan over medium heat, and add onions. Sauté until onions are soft.
  3. Add garlic, cayenne, and curry. Stir well, then add the tamari, brown sugar, vinegar, and peanut butter. Stir until a thick paste is formed. Slowly pour in just enough broth until you get the sauce consistency you want. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. To serve, pour sauce over noodles and toss well. Garnish with scallions, chives, black sesame seeds, or chopped peanuts.
For a more filling meal, add some diced cooked chicken.
