Asian Rice Noodles with Crunchy Spicy Peanut dressing

The best thing about my Raw Ramadan challenge is how it allows me to get spontaneously creative in the kitchen. That feeling of not knowing what you’ll have today, but as soon as you open the fridge, you work according to what’s in stock. I love it!

This is a killer recipe for spicy cold noodles with lots of crunchy  and meaty vegetables, with a homemade peanut dressing that is sure to knock your socks off.

2 tbsp peanuts

Half a small Habanero Chilli (optional)

1 Shallot

3 cherry Tomatoes

Small piece of Ginger

Handful of sliced snowpeas

Handful of Chantrelle mushrooms
