Plus, with the option to customise by adding your favorite veggies or protein, you can create a delightful noodle bowl that suits your taste buds.

Thanks to simple ingredients, these peanut noodles only take 10 minutes to make

  • Noodles: we love a thick udon noodle due to their chewy texture. But you can use any other noodles type really – ramen, soba, rice noodles, you name it
  • Peanut butter: this is key for a creamy and super satisfying sauce and helps keep you full longer.
  • Soy sauce: adds depth and a savoury note to the sauce. We use regular soy sauce, but if you prefer a stronger note, you can use dark soy sauce. Be cautious of using a little less with stronger flavours and taste testing along the way
  • Chili oil: we recommend this chili oil or paste as it’s incredibly versatile in dishes. You can replace it with any spicy or chili sauce but may need to adapt the quantity slightly. So be careful not to fire up your noodles too much!
  • Honey: adds a sweet-savory umami note to the sauce. We opt for a natural sweetener whenever possible. You can use agave nectar, maple syrup or sugar instead
  • Sesame oil: adds a bitter, nutty note. You could use walnut oil or other oils on the bitter side instead. If you do not have any, it’s better to leave this out than replace it with neutral or olive oil

Add extra veg or protein to pimp up your noodles

To make these peanut noodles even more enticing, consider adding your favorite vegetables or protein. Sautéed broccoli, snap peas, or shredded carrots can introduce a burst of color and freshness to the dish. For a heartier option, toss in cooked chicken, shrimp, or tofu. The possibilities are endless, allowing you to create a personalised noodle bowl that suits your cravings.
