Yield: 5  1 1/2 cup servings  

1/2 cup smooth peanut butter 
1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce 
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon ground ginger 
1 medium garlic clove, minced 
1 tablespoon lime juice 
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar 
1 1/2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil 
1 1/2 tablespoon honey 
1/2 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes 

16 oz pasta (spaghetti, udon, soba or rice noodles) 

1 large carrot, (approx. 6 oz) grated or finely chopped (2 cups)
1 small beet, (approx. 3oz) grated or finely chopped (1 cup) 

Whisk first ten ingredients vigorously or use a standard or immersion blender (if you’re using a blender garlic can be used whole). 

Cook pasta according to package directions. If you’d like to serve  noodles chilled, rinse well with cold water (gluten free pasta needs to be rinsed for hot or cold preparation). 

Toss noodles with sauce to coat. Top with carrots and beets.
