This is peanut butter sauce and noodles recipe for two people garnished with edible flowers. You may do the same or garnish this delicious dish with red pepper flakes, sesame seeds, chopped peanuts or garlic. It is all about what you prefer.

Also, we had this peanut butter noodles as main dish, but you may combine it with grilled chicken or turkey. It tastes great but then you have meaty, not vegetarian version. Easy vegan stir fry is also great option!

 

Instead of udon, you may use rice noodles, ramen noodles or Italian pasta. As long as you just strain it and not rinse with water, every kind is great.

Why shouldn’t you rinse your pasta before serving?

The starch in the water is what helps the sauce adhere to your pasta. Rinsing pasta will cool it and prevent absorption of your sauce. The only time you should ever rinse your pasta is when you are going to use it in a cold dish like a pasta salad. To see in full details how to cook the best pasta, look here .

Which is better crunchy or creamy peanut butter to use?

It may happen your sauce does not come together easy if you use crunchy peanut butter. That’s why I suggest creamy type. Also, if you are not peanut butter fan, you may use tahini paste. It is made of hulled sesame seeds, oil, and salt. For more details how to make your own spread from scratch go to Inspiredtaste .
