These Peanut Noodles are crazy good, slightly spicy and drenched in the best peanut sauce ever! and ready in 15 minutes!! This Thai inspired noodle dish makes an easy vegan meal or snack any day of the week. Delicious served hot or cold.


  • 1/2 lb (227 grams, 8 oz) uncooked pasta, I use spaghettini, spaghetti or vermicelli ( use rice noodles for gluten free)
  • 1/4 cup green onions, diced

Peanut Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter, smooth or crunchy
  • 1/2 cup canned coconut milk (full fat)
  • 2 and 1/2 tablespoons Tamari 
  • 2 teaspoons Chili garlic sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar, not seasoned
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar or sweetener of choice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, peeled and grated ( I use a box grater)
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/3 cup water

For Serving (Optional):

  • lime wedges
  • chopped cilantro
  • chopped roasted peanuts


How to make peanut noodles:

  1. First cook your noodles according to package instructions. Add to a colander, drain and rinse well with hot water. Return noodles to the pot. Add a drizzle of sesame oil, mix, and set aside
  2. While noodles are cooking prepare your peanut sauce: add all ingredients to a medium sauce pot. Whisk together and heat on medium low heat until the sauce is warm, no need to simmer.
  3. Mix sauce with noodles and serve!
  4. I like to serve noodles in individual bowls with chopsticks and top with peanut sauce, and green onions.
  5. Serve with lime wedges, roasted chopped peanuts and cilantro! Easy Peasy and amazing!!


  • I like to store the leftover sauce and noodles separately in fridge
  • Will keep for 5-7 days covered in the fridge
  • the peanut sauce recipe is easily doubled.
