dinner: peanut-coconut-curry noodles.

last night's dinner was very last minute, but totally delish.
riding my bike home from work, wondering what d was making for dinner, i received a text from him saying he had been working at the new house and was just heading home from home depot.
oh, i realized, no dinner, yet.
hmmm, my mind wandered into an easy take-out option....but already after 8...we'd fall asleep before the meal was picked up.
my mind landed on asian.
here's what i managed with what we had on hand (i measured nothing, so these are estimates):

peanut coconut curry noodles with tofu and edamame
1 package whole wheat capellini
1/2 package edamame shelled
1 package silken tofu cubed
1/2 c peanut butter
1 can coconut milk
1T curry powder
2 t cayenne pepper
salt to taste

boil edamame (5 min cook time) with pasta (4 min cook time)
meanwhile in sauce pan over medium-low heat mix the coconut milk, peanut butter, curry and cayenne.
heat tofu in sauce.
when pasta and edamame are cooked to preference drain and mix in saucepan with other ingredients.
serve in bowls.
so so creamy, vegan, and good.
