At the end of the story, there is a recipe to try. So in an effort to show that reading has value, we tried the recipe at the end of the story for our boys.
Source: The Story of Noodles
1/2 pound cooked fresh or dry spaghetti noodles
2 green onions, white part only, chopped
2 small cloves of garlic, peeled
1/2 cup smooth almond or peanut butter
1/2 cup coconut or soy milk
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon soy sauce or salt to taste
For the garnish:
1/4 cup roasted nuts
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1. With the help of an adult, chop the green onions and combine all sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor. Mix until smooth.
2. In a big bowl, toss the noodles with the sauce. Garnish with nuts and cranberries. Serve cold.
You can substitute other fruit for the cranberries. Try raisins, grapes, or fresh berries.
Notes: We ate it. I added cilantro. I thought it could use a little curry powder or chili powder. Also more lemon or a good squirt of lime would have made it super yummy.
