Easy Asian Style Peanut Noodles

Today, I’m going to let you all in on a little secret of mine and that is, my family’s recipe for Asian Style Peanut Noodles. More specifically, Cold Taiwanese Peanut Noodles! This dish is great for outdoor picnics and a treat on a hot summer day. It’s easy, quick and the ingredients are usually already in your refrigerator.

What you’ll need:

  • Spaghetti or Spaghettini(Whole Wheat)
  • Garlic
  • Carrots
  • Cucumbers
  • Peanut Butter
  • Water
  • Soy Sauce and Sesame Oil

Cook noodles al dente.

Rinse in cold water until cool.

Mince the garlic! Add lots and lots of garlic. I love garlic! We made a picnic portion so an entire box of spaghettini, we used an entire ball of garlic. I’d say half to one clove per bowl of noodles.

Equal Ratio of peanut butter to water, and mix till smooth. Per bowl, one spoonful of peanut butter. Add to taste later if not enough.

Mix till smooth!

Shredded Carros and Cucumbers. Leave the skin/peel on for cucumbers for more color.

Tablespoon of soy sauce per two servings(shown above) (so 1/2 for one).

Tablespoon of sesame oil per two servings also! It makes a huge difference!

Mix all the ingredients and the peanut butter mixture should be smooth enough to cover the plate of noodles. (Also, I’m sorry for not wiping the plate cleaner, the stains are bothering me so much!! Haha)

For protein, add shredded chicken or sauteed firm tofu! For a kick, add some asian hot sauce. My oh my, it is oh so good. Please try it!!!
