If not, let me tell you again, Trevor literally can’t stop talking about these noodles.
The first time I made these Thai Peanut Noodles was on a Friday night that I reeeeeeally wanted to get delivery. Tuesday, however, was my birthday, so I refrained, and told Trevor that I wanted to make peanutty noodles.
I heard no complaints. His only question was “Are they fast to make, because I’m STARVING!”.
Ohhhhh he didn’t even know what was about to hit him, because 10 minutes later, dinner.was.served. 🙌
There are 4 parts to this recipe:
#1: The noodles
#2: The sauce
#3: The egg – can we just talk for a second about why I’m so obsessed with Asian style noodles with eggs on them?! Literally. Obsessed –> Easy Asian Noodles. One Pot Asian Noodle Soup. And now. Thai Peanut Noodles. I love you all equally.
#4: The garnishes
It sounds like a lot, but while your pasta is cooking, you can prep everything else.
First up, let’s talk noodles. Here’s my thing about cooking with Asian flavors. This here food blog is called Show Me the Yummy, a food blog where we show you how to make EASY recipes for YUMMY food. You can use a more authentic noodle if you want – like, I don’t know some kind of rice noodle – but for me, I always have spaghetti on hand, so today, we’re keeping things EASY and using spaghetti. I promise you, you’ll love it.
Next up, the sauce. Like I said, if you cook Asian inspired food at all, you’ll have all these ingredients on hand. All you have to do is whisk together garlic, sriracha, soy sauce, seasoned rice vinegar, brown sugar, sesame oil, fish sauce, and peanut butter! Easy peasy. SO yummy.
Then there’s the egg. With the combo of peanut butter and egg – this meal is full of protein! Eggs are definitely my go-to source of protein (plus chicken, which if you have any leftover rotisserie chicken laying around – so good in this). So many ways to prepare them, so tasty, and full of protein! Today, we’re frying the egg, and keep it runny, because the yolk mixes together with the noodles and the sauce and ohmygosh it’s gooey and delicious.
Last up. The garnishes. Chopped salted peanuts, fresh cilantro, green onions, and a squeeze of lime juice. The chopped peanuts give these Thai Peanut Noodles great texture and crunch and the cilantro, green onions, and lime juice really brighten it up. So gooooooooood.
Ok. So I know that just sounded like a lot, but these Thai Peanut Noodles are seriously so easy to make.
Make these Thai Peanut Noodles for dinner some night you’re really craving delivery and I promise you, you won’t be disappointed.
PS – I try (emphasis on the word try) eating these Thai Peanut Noodles with these super cute chopsticks. Hehe. 🙂
What are some of your favorite take-out dishes? Show me the yummy!
- 1 pound spaghetti we use whole grain, ramen is also fantastic
- 3 large cloves garlic minced
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger optional
- 1 tablespoon Sriracha more or less to taste
- 1/4 cup soy sauce or gluten free alternative
- 1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon fish sauce *omit if vegetarian
- 1/4 cup peanut butter use an all natural, no sugar only variety
- 4 large Fried eggs**
- Fresh cilantro minced
- Green onion sliced
- Salted Peanuts chopped
- freshly squeezed lime juice
- Cook your pasta according to box directions. Drain.
- While the pasta is cooking, make the sauce and prep the toppings.
- In a medium sized bowl, whisk together all ingredients until fully combined. Set aside.
- If peanut butter is a little clumpy, that's ok, it will melt once it hits the hot pasta.
- Mix sauce together with drained pasta until fully combined.
- Divide pasta equally in four bowls.
- Top with fried egg, cilantro, green onions, peanuts, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice!
Want to make this even easier and healthier? Omit the garlic and replace with 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. Omit the brown sugar and sesame oil. A little lighter, but still TOTALLY delish. 🙂 This makes the calories 529 per serving.
*Omit if vegetarian, but you will lose some of the "Thai" flavor. I'd love to hear if you guys have a favorite substitute! I've heard mushroom sauce is great.
**If you're not sure how to make an over easy egg: Heat a medium sized skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray. Crack in egg (I work with 1 - 2 eggs at a time). Cook for about 2 minutes, flip, and cook for another 2 minutes. Cooking time will vary depending on how runny you like your yolks. Season with salt and pepper.
***This reheats great, but does dry out in the fridge, so just mix the noodles with a little water before nuking in the microwave!
