This classic Asian dish is usually packed with fat and calories thanks to lots of peanut butter. Lighten it up by adding lots of fresh veggies and using low-sodium broth and yogurt instead.

Preparation:

Step 1

Cook linguine in a large pot of salted water for about 12 minutes or until al dente. Drain, and immediately plunge into an ice water bath. Set aside.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in a medium-size saucepan, combine peanut butter, broth, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, red pepper flakes and ginger. Whisk until combined. Cook on medium-high heat for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until thickened.

Step 3

Drain noodles, discarding ice cubes. Toss with half of the dressing (about 3/4 cup), and allow to soak it in for a few minutes. Stir yogurt into remaining dressing, then add dressing, cabbage, peppers, and scallions and toss until well combined. Top with additional sliced scallions and serve cold. Best if served on the day it is made.
