3. Remove vegetables from heat, add noodles, and toss with green onions, slivered almonds, and crushed red pepper flakes, to desired level of zip.
4. Make the sauce: whisk together Barney Butter and water until smooth. Then, whisk in the rice vinegar and soy sauce. Pour over the stir fry and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
I just wanted to share that I had my first bite of Barney Butter and nearly cried from joy. I developed a peanut allergy six years ago and have desperately missed peanut butter. I have tried EVERY almond butter out there but they have all been a poor substitute. When I saw your Barney Butter in the store the other day and saw that it has the same consistency as peanut butter I had to try it. It is the absolute best! I will be a loyal fan from now on! Thank you so much for making my day! – Dawn, Vero Beach, FL
