Peanut Butter and Sesame Noodles

As a self-confessed peanut butter addict, it's no surprise that these noodles are my absolute favourite. I can't express to you just how delicious this dish is, you just need to make it and see for yourself, unless of course you don't like peanut butter because then you probably won't like it (but who doesn't like peanut butter?!). It only takes around 10 minutes to make so is perfect for those evenings when you don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. I usually find myself eating this meal once a week and it just never gets old.

Peanut Butter and Sesame Noodles

You will need (serves 1): 
a portion of noodles of your choice 
1 large carrot 
a handful of broccoli florets 
2 tablespoons sweetcorn
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 heaped tablespoon smooth peanut butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce 
1/4 teaspoon chilli flakes 
1 teaspoon agave nectar 

- Start by preparing the carrot into thin strips. For this I use a Julienne peeler and then chop the slices into smaller pieces but you could also use a spiralizer if you have one and then chop into smaller pieces or simply grate the carrot. 
- Cook the noodles until they are almost cooked (they will finish off cooking when you add them to the wok)
- While the noodles are cooking, steam or boil the broccoli and sweetcorn for a few minutes until they are almost cooked (I find two minutes is enough) - they will also cook through once you add them to the wok.  
- In a wok, heat up the sesame oil and then add the carrots and stir-fry for two minutes. 
- Add the noodles, broccoli and sweetcorn to the wok and mix everything together. 
- Finally, add the peanut butter, soy sauce, chilli flakes and agave to make the sauce (you could mix this up in a separate dish first if you prefer). Stir fry everything together for about one minute. If the noodles get a bit sticky and are starting to clump together at this stage, just add a little boiling water to the wok and that will loosen everything up.
