Ingredients

For the Noodles-

  • 1/2 pound spaghettini 8 oz, also called thin spaghetti
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 red bell pepper julienned
  • 1 medium carrot grated
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 2 tablespoons dry roasted peanuts chopped

For the Peanut Sauce-

  • 1 1/2 cup vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons truvia or sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • Bring large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook spaghettini according to package directions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  • While pasta is cooking, spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and preheat over medium heat. Saute cabbage, red pepper and carrot for 3-5 minutes. You want the carrots and cabbage to soften while keeping some texture in the red peppers. Add in garlic and cook until fragrant. (You don't really want color on the veggies, just trying to soften. Feel free to reduce temperature down to medium low or low.)
