2Tbspwateror unsalted chicken broth
3Tbspsoy sauce,then more to taste
3Tbsptoasted sesame oil
1 1/2Tbsprice vinegar
1 1/2Tbspcreamy peanut butter
1 1/2tspsriracha,or more to taste
1 1/2tspvegetable oilor light olive oil
1/4cup choppedgreen onions
1/4cup choppedroasted peanuts
Cook spaghetti or ramen according to package directions.
Meanwhile in a small mixing bowl whisk together water and cornstarch. Mix in soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, rice vinegar, peanut butter and sriracha (peanut butter will remain separated at this point).
Heat vegetable oil in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add garlic and ginger and saute until fragrant until just barely deepening in color (but not browning), about 30 seconds.
Pour in sauce mixture and cook and whisk just until it barely simmers and thickens lightly. Remove from heat, cover and keep warm until pasta is ready (note if needed you can add a little water if it's salty to your taste, if it's not salty enough add in a little more soy sauce).
Toss sauce mixture with drained noodles. Garnish servings with green onions, peanuts and sesame seeds, serve warm.
Low-sodium soy sauce can be used if preferred for less sodium (less salty flavor).
