These soy peanut noodles are ridiculously easy to make and are on the table in 15 minutes! Even better, you’ll probably already have most of the ingredients on hand.
Sometimes even we like to spend as little time as possible in the kitchen. As much as I love cooking I often feel a little overwhelmed by the thought of all the blog related activities I still have to get done once I’ve finished cooking and eating dinner. I don’t get home from work until about 7pm and once dinner is over and done with it can easily be 8.30 or even later. Enter these soy peanut noodles.
Not only are they super tasty and full of soy peanuty flavour, they’re also insanely easy! This is one of those curl up in front of the tv dinners. Bowl food is good like that. Even if you’re like me and insist on using chopsticks it’s still definitely worthy of eating on the sofa.
These noodles are totally customisable as well. I kept things really simple, mainly because I hadn’t organised myself to get any extras, but you could add so much veg to these to make the dish super healthy. I’m thinking spinach would be excellent in here or maybe broccoli? Peppers? So many options!
How do you guys feel about noodles? Or more specifically, what type of noodle do you like best? When I was younger we always used to have the really fine egg noodles and I love them, they seem way more satisfying to eat but Will really doesn’t like them so we always get medium egg noodles instead although they really just remind me of spaghetti. Otherwise Will is all about the udon noodle which I can totally get on board with now and again but it’s kind of an occasional thing, don’t you think?
Anyway, this recipe for soy peanut noodles will work with any type of noodle you fancy really. Use whatever you have and you’ll find that you can probably make this recipe without even having to buy anything, it’s that good!
