From the Test Kitchen

For dinner tonight, we’re adding a few seasonal, sophisticated touches to classic Southeast Asian peanut noodles. Sautéed snow peas and pea tips, the tasty leaves of the pea plant, balance the spicy, nutty and sweet sauce with their delightfully fresh flavor. (The sauce owes its plesant heat to sambal oelek, an Indonesian red chile paste.) For gorgeous color, we’re using specialty noodles made from black rice flour. And we’re garnishing them with crunchy peanuts sautéed with garlic.
