1. First, make the peanut sauce. In a large bowl, combine peanut sauce, rice vinegar, amino acids, sesame oil, agave, and lime juice. Whisk until smooth. Stir in garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes. Whisk in the warm water until sauce is smooth.
2. Next, make the cucumber noodles. Adjust the julienne blade on a mandolin to the 1/8-inch-think setting. Carefully run the cucumber down the blade, slicing the sucmber to form noodle. Continue with the other cucumber. If you don’t have a mandolin you can use a julienne peeler to make the noodles or a spiralizer.
3. Last, place cucumber noodle on a plate or in a bowl. Drizzle with the peanut sauce and toss gently. Top with cilantro and peanuts. Serve and enjoy!
