Sometimes inspiration hits at the most unexpected moment. Tonight it came while standing in the grocery store. I was looking for agave nectar when I remembered I was out of almond butter. Next thing I knew, this recipe was hatched.
Almond & Lime Noodles
1/2 package of whole wheat angel hair pasta
3 T almond butter
1/4 c orange juice (plus 1 T if needed)
juice of 1 lime (cut lime in 1/2, then cut one half into wedges)
2 green onions, chopped
Cook the noodles according to the package. Drain and set aside. Melt almond butter in warm pan with orange juice and the juice of 1/2 the lime. Turn on low burner if needed. Pour this concoction over the noodles and toss. If the noodles get sticky, add a little more orange juice. Toss in the green onions. Serve with the remaining lime half cut into wedges; squeeze the juice onto the noodles and enjoy!
