Spicy Asian Peanut Noodles

Once you buy the oils, you generally have the ingredients laying around the house, and they are very inexpensive. If you have one, I suggest Trader Joes, they sell this stuff dirt cheap. I would say there is enough protein in here to not add meat, but some chicken breast is tasty if you are extra hungry.



  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 inch fresh ginger, peeled
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp. chicken stock or water
  • 2 tsp. chili oil
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • Diced cucumber and cilantro for toppings if you like


Boil 1/2 pound of pasta. Add ingredients to food processor or blender, starting with the ginger and garlic. Mix into fresh pasta and top. Voila!, a beautiful cheap delicious meal. You know it's cheap because I am on a college budget!

Yeah someone from my home town! (well really, Scotts Valley, but close enough!). I am so glad you posted this! I needed something filling but without cheese and meat tonight, I am so making this for myself! My DD is having leftovers, this for me!

This sauce is good on tofu, too.
