Peanut Noodles with Vegetables

Jan 08, 2021 by

This is a very regular dinner in our home not only because it’s so delicious (who doesn’t love nutty noodles?!), but because it’s easy to make, too. Besides the fresh veggies (onion, broccoli, carrots and peppers), hopefully you already have all the other ingredients in your pantry or fridge. Also, the sauce is just three ingredients that require no prep. You can’t mess this recipe up! Even if you overcook the veggies, they are still delicious coated with the sauce.

If you have a nut allergy, try using tahini instead of peanut butter for the sauce. It’ll still be delicious!

This recipe serves two large eaters.

I’ve had this recipe sitting in my Paprika app for months and finally got around to making it. This will definitely be part of my rotation! So tasty! I added a little bit of maple syrup to the sauce and a few other veggies. Thanks for another great recipe!

This was so good, I couldn’t stop eating it! I added a bit of extra peanut butter, and some maple syrup to taste because I prefer a sweeter peanut sauce. It made a lot; my partner and I had it for dinner, I had some more for a snack, a big bowl for lunch today and there’s still some left!


Oh sooo good!!!

This recipe is easy peasy and oh soo good. When I accidentally have it too many days in a row I like to throw in some chili peppers one day or maple syrup to mix things up but keep the same great taste! Thanks Erin for this one!
