   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      tablespoons   Garlic -- minced (fresh)
    3      tablespoons   Coriander -- minced
 
      1/2  cup           Peanut butter
    5      ounces        Soy sauce -- light
    5      tablespoons   Sugar
                         Rice wine (between -- 1/2 t to 1 T)
    1      tablespoon    Hot bean paste -- (up to 2 T)
    1      tablespoon    Sesame oil
    1      pound         Lo mein noodles (other -- noodles will do,
           as            ramen noodles -- or even spaghetti)
 
 Cook the lo mein according to directions.  Let cool.  Mix the rest of the
 ingredients.  Peanut butter doesn't mix very well, so for a few minutes
 you'll think you've made a mistake. Don't worry, just keep stirring until
 it’s smooth. Add the sauce to the noodles.
 
  Hot bean sauce also goes by the name Szechuan bean sauce etc.  This is the
 main “spicy” ingredient and should be handled with care.  Vary this
 ingredient to taste. This recipe is probably very good without it. It’s
 also quite good served when the noodles are still hot.
 
  NOTES:
 
  *  Mildly spicy cold noodles -- I first had this at Brandy Ho’s in
 Chinatown, San Francisco. I forget where I found the recipe.
