Cheater's Pad Thai

A friend of mine, moonwatcher, posted her version of Cheater’s Pad Thai Sauce from the Happy Herbivore.  I went to a site with the recipe and tried it out.  Here is where I got it from:  Cheater's Pad Thai Sauce 

To feed 5 people (and a boyfriend)
1 package of rice sticks
1/4 cup dark soy sauce
1/8 cup peanut butter
1/8 cup sweet chili sauce
several gratings of fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
5 wedges of fresh lime
1/2 cup cilantro leaves
1 cup bean sprouts

Put the cooked noodles (mine were leftover from yesterday) into a wok turned to medium with 1/3 cup water.  Stir fry around so noodles are evenly warm.  Mine started out cold, so if yours are freshly cooked and still hot, just add them to an empty work and turn heat to medium.  Whisk the peanut butter, soy sauce, garlic, and chili sauce together in a mixing bowl then empty into the wok full of noodles.  Grate ginger on top and stir with a silicon spatula.  When thoroughly mixed and hot, serve into large flat bowls.  Add sprouts, cilantro, and Sriacha sauce as desired then squeeze lime on top.  Eat!

Yummo!  Even my very picky youngest child likes it!  Win-win!
