    1. Whisk together the SunButter, tamari, fish sauce, honey, lime juice, garlic, and ginger in a large bowl until smooth. Add the coconut milk and 2 teaspoons of Sriracha, and continue to whisk until combined. Add additional Sriracha to taste, if desired. Set the sauce aside.
    2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the rice noodles and boil for 3 minutes. Add the carrot and bell pepper slices to the pot. Continue boiling the noodles and vegetables for 2-3 minutes longer, until the noodles are al dente, and the vegetables are fork-tender.
    3. Use a measuring cup to remove 1/2 cup of water from the pot and set aside. Drain the noodles and vegetables and rinse with cold water.

    The sauce was a bit too runny and ended up at the bottom of the pan but still, it was delicious!

    I substituted peanut butter for sun butter and the sauce was tasty. Over all it turned out well but I would probably add mushrooms and ground peanuts next time.

    Good recipe. My grocery had 2 for 1 on pork tenderloins so I subbed that for chicken. Turned out great- Big Daddy gave it a thumbs up!
