I love saucy noodle dishes and these takeout-style peanut butter noodles check all of the boxes. It’s salty, savory, creamy, slightly sweet and slightly spicy. The creamy peanut sauce is silky smooth and clings to the buckwheat soba noodles and it makes the veggies taste so good! Sometimes I make a double batch of this sauce so I can serve it on tofu and veggie bowls too. It’s great on green veggies like green beans and broccoli so I like having extra to pour over rice, veggies and tofu.

Ingredients

  • Peanut Butter – I recommend using natural peanut butter like this one for best results. If the only ingredients on the label are roasted peanuts and salt, it’ll be perfect for this recipe!
  • Red Thai Curry Paste – a flavorful spice blend made with garlic, shallots, lemongrass and kaffir lime. I used this one when testing this recipe. I also sprinkle in some garlic granules. It’s optional but adds great flavor!
  • Maple Syrup – adds a touch of sweetness to balance out the savory flavors in this sauce.
  • Lime Juice – fresh lime juices brings this sauce to life! It compliments the curry paste and cuts the richness of peanut butter at the same time.
  • Water – to thin out the sauce a little so it’s easy to toss with the noodles and veggies!
  • Soba Noodles – buckwheat soba noodles cook quickly and they’re a great way to add some protein to the dish.
  • Broccoli and Edamame -Fresh or frozen will work but I often use frozen veggies to make this a quick and easy meal.
  • Scallions + Peanuts – sprinkle on top for a speedy way to add extra flavor and texture.

How to Make Veggie Peanut Noodles:

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the soba noodles. Cook according to package directions but set a timer for 2 minutes before the recommended time. ie: If it says to cook for 6 minutes, set the timer for 4 minutes right after you drop the noodles into the water.

Meanwhile mix together the sauce by combining peanut butter, red Thai curry paste, garlic granules, maple syrup, lime juice and 1/2 of the water in a bowl. Whisk to combine, add the rest of the water and then season with salt and pepper to taste.

When the time goes off, drop the frozen broccoli and edamame into the pot with the noodles. Boil for 2 minutes. Check to make sure the broccoli is warmed through and then drain the pasta noodles and veggies and return to the pot.

Pour in the sauce and toss well to coat.

Sprinkle with scallions and chopped peanuts and serve with lots of juicy lime wedges on the side.

  • Crispy baked tofu or vegan chicken is great with this sauce and makes the dish even more filling.
