Easy Peasy Pad Thai

Yields6 Servings

 ½ cup peanut butter or almond butter
 ½ medium onion, diced
 1 clove garlic, minced, or 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
 1 (14-oz.) can unsweetened coconut milk
 ¼ cup soy sauce
 2 packages instant ramen
 1 tbsp cooking oil
 1 head broccoli cut into florets
 1 (8-oz.) can water chestnuts
 1 (8-oz.) can bamboo shoots

Adult help needed. First, make the sauce: Add peanut/almond butter, onion, garlic, coconut milk and soy sauce to a medium saucepan. Heat over medium, stirring frequently, until mixed and smooth. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer while you do the other steps.


Begin cooking your instant ramen noodles according to package directions.


While ramen is cooking, make your stir-fry: Heat oil in a large skillet. Add remaining ingredients and stir-fry over high heat until the vegetables are tender but not limp, about 8 minutes. If veggies start sticking, add a little soy sauce to the bottom of the skillet.


When noodles and vegetables are finished cooking, you’re ready to put it all together. Put some noodles in a bowl and then top with veggies and sauce to your liking. Enjoy!
