Garlic Peanut Noodles Recipe – Delicious noodles and stir fried vegetables are tossed in garlic olive oil and coated in a mixture of peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, hot sauce and ginger.
I have dinner for you! Super silky, sweet, savory and garlicky nooooodles!! DON’T walk away… they’re whole grain.
Hi Hi! Hope you’re having a terrific weekend! The rain is kind of buggin’ me, I even saw leaves falling, but it’s all good. I am not going to complain.
Though, Summer is never long enough. Ever. This crappy weather will linger on for the next 8 months.
I said I wasn’t going to complain… *clears throat*
It’s kind of a secret, but I am a noodle-peanut sauce-garlic FUHreak! So very true. I’d probably eat it everyday if I could. Darn carbs! Also, I could never make it as good as the Thai restaurant down the street. Oh my gosh. It’s so, so good. I always ask for their recipes, but they respond with measurements of “handful of this” and “a small pinch of that”, and I’m like, don’t you know I have a food blog?!? I need REAL measurements. #TheStruggleIsReal.
It’s a good thing that I almost always try to recreate whatever dish catches my attention.
Years and years back, I was introduced to Peanut Noodles while visiting my relatives in Australia, and I instantly fell in love. I couldn’t even hold chopsticks at the time, but did I care?! NOPE! I went at those noodles as if nobody was watching.
Years later, I’m still making those same peanut noodles and loving every peanutty and garlicky bite.
To help us with the extra garlicky flavor, I have our trusted STAR Garlic Flavored Olive Oil, which is perfect for adding a punch of garlic to our favorite dishes. It features a garlic flavor that helps enhance the flavors and spices of ANY dish.
Sidenote: It’s also perrrrrfect as a simple dip for warm bread!
This takes no time at all. You can make it really quick. Like oh-mah-gosh-it’s-Wednesday-and-I-want-to-order-take-out type of quick.
First, you’re going to do what I do and that is, pick up a bag of frozen stir fry veggies. 😀 I mean… Who has time to chop 10 different types of veg? On a Wednesday!?
THEN, you’re going to warm up that delicious Olive Oil we just talked about and cook them veggies in it. In the meantime, you’ll grab a handful of whole grain noodles, throw ’em in water and let ’em cook, all the while you make our famous Peanut Sauce!
See? Bah-dah-bing Bah-dah-boom, we’re DONE!
A garnish of chopped peanuts and toasted sesame seeds add a nice crunch to the silky, savory noodle dish.
