Five Minute Asian Peanut Noodles

peanutnoodles

Noodles are high on my list of favorite foods. There is something so comforting in the simplicity of just noodles and sauce. And they are fun to eat.

This recipe is quick, quick, quick. You can dress it up or dress it down to its basics. Either way it’s a very simple no-cook sauce with three main ingredients, and easy to remember ratios. That’s my very favorite part.

ingredients

Ingredients:

1/3 of a 10 oz package authentic Chinese dried noodles

1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter

1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce ( or liquid aminos)

Dash of garlic powder

Dash of ground ginger

Optional Ingredients:

Shredded cabbage, carrots, scallions or other fresh veggies

Fresh cilantro, torn or chopped

Toasted sesame seeds or Gomasio

Asian Chili Sauce or crushed red pepper

Chopped peanuts

Noodles

Method:

Place noodles in a microwave safe bowl and cover with water. Microwave on high for five minutes. While noodles are working, blend sauce ingredients in a bowl with a fork. Add a bit of water if the sauce is too thick. Drain noodles and add to sauce. Toss noodles to coat and add any optional ingredients, chili sauce (if you like it spicy) or other garnishes.

prepYield:

One large or 2 small servings

  1. I was at a food event recently and found some peanut butter by the All Natural Peanut Butter & Co called “The Heat is On”. It’s peanut butter with hot spices added in all ready for making peanut sauce. Would work great in this recipe. I think I’ll try it!
    BTW, thanks for checking out my blog, Mostly Vegan.

  2. This sounds great! I’m having a rough day tomorrow with a meeting from 4 to 6, making sure that I won’t be home before 7:30… Do you think I can take this with me and eat it cold? I’ve never had cold noodles before, so I don’t know, but it would be amazing!

    • To eat this dish cold, you would probably want the sauce to be a bit thinner, so I would add a bit of water and maybe a little maple syrup to thin it out.Check the flavor and add more tamari or vinegar to get the taste you like. As written, the sauce tends to get pretty stiff when cold. I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for checking out my blog 🙂
