It's Peanut Butter Noodle Time!

Warning: these Thai-style peanut butter noodles will kick

We received a jar of Hot 'n Spicy Peanut Butter from Krema Nut Company (via The Sister's Sweet Shop in Dublin) and wanted to make something delicious with it.  We decided upon this Thai-style pasta dish, and were very pleased with the result.  The Hot 'n Spicy Peanut Butter was a great touch - adding just enough kick to make you smile.  Well done, Krema - we loved your peanut butter!

Thai-Style Peanut Noodles

  • 1 8oz package soba noodles
  • 1 bunch asparagus spears, cut into 1/2" segments
  • 1/4 cup Hot 'n Spicy Krema Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (we used Krema creamy peanut butter)
  • 1/4 cup brown rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Crushed red pepper flakes

  1. BOIL soba noodles per package instructions.  In the last minute of boiling, add the cut asparagus.
  2. DRAIN noodles and asparagus, then run under cold water for about a minute to stop the cooking.
  3. COMBINE the peanut butter, rice vinegar, and garlic in a separate bowl.
  4. ADD hot water a little bit at a time until the peanut sauce reaches your desired texture.  We recommend a consistency that is slightly thicker than yogurt.
  5. TASTE the sauce and add red pepper flakes and salt as desired.
  6. POUR the sauce over the noodles and toss well, until all noodles are evenly coated.
  7. ADD any proteins you may want - we recommend boiled chicken, but tofu is a popular option as well.  The protein will be just as good on the side, if you'd rather not combine it with the noodles!
  8. GARNISH with scallions and/or peanuts and enjoy!
