Szechuan Peanut Noodles

This is from Vegan Family Meals. It was... okay. I think that a wider, fatter noodle would work better (rice, perhaps?) The veg was listed as optional in the recipe- I think it's mandatory- the noodles and sauce alone would be rather grodie, it really needs the vegetable textures and flavors to break up the peanut overload.

It was kinda meh. I have to say, I really prefer the RFD book to this one, and if I didn't know better, I would never peg this food as being made by the same chef that made the RFD recipes. But, that book is so stellar that I would never say anything disparaging about her food!
