Here’s a luscious dish of noodles, kale butternut squash, enveloped in a rich peanut sauce — contributed by Bryanna Clark Grogan. If you prefer, you can have all the ingredients heated and serve the dish hot instead of at room temperature.
Blend the peanut butter, water, brown sugar, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame seeds, ginger, garlic, and chili sauce in blender or food processor until smooth, adding more water by tablespoonfuls if too thick. Set aside until ready to serve. This sauce can be made 1 day ahead, in which case cover and refrigerate; then bring to room temperature before serving.
Cook the noodles according to the package directions. Drain the noodles in a colander, running hot water over them. Set aside in the sink to drain..
Place the squash pieces in one layer on a large cookie sheet, spray lightly with oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil about 3″ under the heat source until the squash tender and slightly charred, on both sides.
Add the kale on top of the squash, spray with oil, and sprinkle with salt. Broil briefly until the kale is tender and a little brown around edges. Watch it carefully—it doesn’t take long!
ALTERNATELY, you can stir-fry the kale in a bit of oil until tender.
Toss the drained cooked noodles, green onions, and peanut sauce in large bowl. Divide noodle mixture among 8 bowls. Top noodle mixture with squash and kale. Sprinkle each serving with chopped peanuts. Serve at room temperature.
