If you’re a lover of peanut butter, this bowl of creamy noodles is designed for you. With the perfect balance of heat, salt and tartness, you’ll have this on your table before you can run out to grab a hot box!
For the sauce:
- 4 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
- 2 teaspoons dark soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
- 1 lime, juiced
For the noodles:
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- handful sugar snap peas, halved
- 1 small carrot, finely sliced
- 2 spring onions, chopped
- 2 packs soft ready-to-wok noodles (egg free)
To serve (optional):
- 2 teaspoons white sesame seeds
- small handful fresh coriander
- 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced
To make the sauce, whisk together the peanut butter, soy sauce, and chilli flakes along with 200ml cold water in a bowl. Whisk in the lime juice to form a smooth paste.
For the noodles, heat the oil in a wok over a high heat. When the oil is hot, throw in the vegetables and stir-fry for one or two minutes. Separate the soft noodles and add them to the wok. Pour in the peanut sauce and stir-fry for a further minute.
Sprinkle over the sesame seeds, coriander and chilli. Serve immediately.
