Peanut Butter Ramen Noodles

Okay so this dish is more of a thick peanut curry and I love it. These peanut butter ramen noodles remind me of that Thai peanut sauce that we use to dip spring rolls in but creamier and more flavorful! It is also packed with nutrients from all the vegetables and peanut butter. Make this for a date night in or for a fun weekday dinner because it only requires one pot to make. Less dishes means, more time with your family and friends!

This dish was inspired by my love for peanut butter, curry, saucy noodles, and Thai food. If you like all of these things, I am sure you’ll be a big fan of this recipe. There is also a good chance that you have most of these ingredients at your local grocery store.

Main ingredients

  • Ramen noodles: Any ramen noodles will work, pick your favorite! I like to buy my ramen noodles at large Asian grocery stores in big packages to avoid single-wrapped plastic.
  • Vegetables: You can truly use any vegetable you’d like. My favorite vegetables to add are bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, broccoli, and carrots.
  • Garlic & Ginger: The combination of these two will add a lot of flavor so I recommend not skipping! Fresh is always best but you can also use jarred garlic/ginger or even garlic powder.
  • Peanut butter: The star of the show! Peanut butter lovers will probably add a bit more than the recipe recommends and that is okay 😉 I highly recommend using creamy 100% peanut butter for this recipe.
  • Red Curry Paste: I use the Thai Kitchen red curry paste and like it. You don’t necessarily NEED to add this but it adds flavor and complexity.
  • Vegetable broth: I always use vegan Better than Bouillon either the chicken flavor or mushroom base. It’s a bouillon paste that you dissolve in water.
  • Sugar: This balances out the flavors and adds a hint of sweetness. Most authentic Asian dishes have a bit of sweetness to them which is what makes the flavors stand out a lot.
  • Coconut milk: This is where you get the creamy texture of the broth so I highly recommend using full-fat coconut milk.
  • Soy sauce: Umami flavor! I typically just add soy sauce over salt.
