Asian Noodle Stir Fry (Fake Pad thai)

This noodle dish reminds me of some of the noodle dishes at PF Changs.  Its almost like pad thai too but not quite.  I will warn you that it is a little spicy.  If you are cooking for kiddos you may want to reduce the chili garlic sauce.  Its super easy and my family loves it!  It is the best asian noodle dish I have made yet!


2 T soy sauce or bragg's liquid aminos
2 T water
2 T peanut butter
1 T chili garlic sauce
1 T sweet chili sauce

4-5 oz thin rice noodles softened according to their packaging instructions
2 tsp fresh chopped ginger
2 tsp minced garlic or 1/2 tsp garlic powder
3 T oil
1 1/2 cups shrimp or sliced grilled chicken or pork
1 cup diced zucchini or broccoli
1/2 cup bean or lentil sprouts or your choice
1-2 eggs (optional)

lemon or lime juice
handful of chopped peanuts


1.  Whisk together sauce ingredients in small bowl and set aside
2.  Soften rice noodles and have them ready to use
3.  Saute Vegetables with ginger, garlic, and oil (if using chicken saute chicken first and then add vegetables) briefly on medium high heat, add shrimp and sprouts and noodles and saute a couple minutes
4.  Reduce heat and stir sauce mixture into the pan and mix well to coat noodles and vegetables evenly
5.  Saute a minute and then add eggs and scramble in noodles
6.  Serve with fresh squeezed lemon or lime and a sprinkle of peanuts (if its too spicy the lemon can help reduce some of the heat)
7.  Enjoy!
