For Noodles 2 cups all-purpose gluten-free flour, plus extra for dusting 3 large eggs 2 tablespoons olive oil ¼ cup lukewarm water ¼ teaspoon sea salt
For Peanut Sauce ½ cup creamy unsalted peanut butter,room temperature 3 tablespoons Kikkoman® Gluten-Free Tamari Soy Sauce 2 tablespoons Kikkoman® Sesame Oil 2 tablespoons Kikkoman® Rice Vinegar ¼ cup warm water 1 tablespoon agave nectar or honey
For Garnish ½ cup chopped peanuts ¼ cup chopped cilantro
Pour flour onto a clean work surface and create a mound. Make a large well and add eggs, olive oil, lukewarm water, and sea salt.
Use hands to gently work the dough into a ball. Add more water as needed and continue to work dough into a pliable ball.
Divide dough into 8 equal sized balls. Place 7 balls in a bowl and cover with a towel to keep moist. Tear the remaining ball into 2 pieces and begin rolling 1 piece into a single log on work surface using fingertips. Tear in half and continue to roll back and forth into a thin ¼ - inch noodle, about 10 inches long. Continue with the other pieces and the remaining dough balls. Each ball will make approximately 4-5 noodles. If noodles are too dry when rolling, dampen fingertips with water and moisten the noodle as you roll.
Set aside the completed noodles and lightly dust with flour to keep them dry.
Once all noodles are complete, bring 8 cups of water to a rolling boil in a large pot. Gently add the noodles to your pot and boil for 5-6 minutes or until noodles float to the top.
While noodles cook, whisk together ingredients for peanut sauce in a small bowl until it reached a smooth consistency.
Strain noodles and add them to a large bowl. Pour sauce over noodles and gently stir to coat, evenly. Serve warm or chilled, topped with chopped peanuts and cilantro.
