Serves 4

What You Need:

1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon tamari
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1/2 cup water
1 12-ounce package of linguine

1 large carrot, shredded
1 red bell pepper, julienned
3 scallions, thinly sliced

What You Do:
