    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 black bean sauce.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    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. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. 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

    Cook the vegetables & sauce
    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 shallot, 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.

    Meanwhile, add the noodles to the pot of boiling water, stirring gently to separate. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain and rinse under warm water 30 seconds to 1 minute to prevent sticking; return to the pot.
