Thai Peanut Noodles Recipe

Do you like peanut butter?

Are you a fan of pasta?

What about really quick meals… do you like meals that are super quick to make?

Yes Yes Yes

Well, I have the recipe for you! This Thai Peanut Noodles Recipe is super fast and flavorful! It’s spicy, creamy, and hearty. It’s also economical to make. If you want to kick up the protein, it’s equally as good with grilled chicken. (Leftover grilled or broiled chicken is great, or grab a rotisserie chicken at the store.)

Thai Peanut Noodles Recipe Tips

  • Can these noodles be served cold? Yes! They can be served warm or cold.
  • As well, these noodles are even better the next day once the sauce has soaked into the noodles.
  • You can use any noodles you have on hand.
  • Sesame oil might not be in your pantry. However, I highly recommend splurging on it. It’s a strongly flavored oil. Therefore, you use just a couple of tablespoons in each recipe. It’ll last you for months. You can substitute canola, olive, or another oil, but they won’t give your recipe the same flavor.

Why use glass bowls? Glass bowls are versatile. You can use them as double boilers, they're microwave—and dishwasher-safe, and they retain an even temperature. The main reason to use glass is that it does not leach chemicals into your food. Glass is 100% FDA-approved for various applications.

What to serve with Thai Noodles

I like Broccoli Salad and edamame with these noodles. Crispy Parmesan Edamame and Roasted Edamame are both good choices.

    Hi Paula. Nice recipe! I made this early this morning and allowed it to sit in the mixture all day long. When I let my husband smell the noodles he lost it! I can’t wait to try this hot in the next 20 minutes after my chicken is ready. Thanks so much!
