From the Test Kitchen

To make the dynamic sauce for this vegetarian noodle dish, you’ll combine tangy tamarind paste—made from the pleasantly sour, sticky fruit of the tropical tamarind tree—with sweet chili sauce and umami-rich black bean sauce. It’s all complete with a garnish of roasted peanuts for delightful crunch and nutty flavor in each bite.

1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Roughly chop the peanuts. In a bowl, whisk together the tamarind paste, sweet chili sauce, black bean sauce, sugar, and 1/4 cup of water

2 Cook the vegetables & sauce:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced mushrooms in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the snow peas, sliced onion, chopped garlic, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil). Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined and the sauce is slightly thickened. Turn off the heat.
