When I saw this recipe for Vegetarian Thai Noodles With Spicy Peanut Sauce in The 30-Minute Cooking from Frozen Cookbook: 100 Delicious Recipes That Will Save You Time and Money―No Pre-Thawing Required! by Carole Jones of MyKitchenEscapades.com, I knew it would be the first recipe to try because it’s made with ramen.

The recipe turns ordinary packets of ramen into a tasty Thai dish that comes together in less than half an hour. It’s really quite easy to make. Let’s take a look at how to make it, shall we?

Ingredients

For this recipe, you need the following:

  • ramen noodles
  • frozen broccoli florets
  • sesame oil
  • garlic and ginger
  • soy sauce, peanut butter, and Thai sweet chili sauce
  • 1 medium lime, 1 medium red bell pepper, green onions, fresh cilantro, and
  • peanuts.

How To Make Thai Noodles With Spicy Peanut Sauce

You begin by bringing water to a boil in a large pot and then place three packets of ramen in it to cook for 3 minutes. (I recommend that you break the noodles up before putting them in the water. This step will make it easier to mix the cooked noodles with the Thai sauce and veggies.)

Next, microwave frozen broccoli according to package directions.

In a large skillet over medium-low heat, add oil, garlic, and ginger. Keep the heat low and sauté for 1 minute before adding soy sauce, peanut butter, chili sauce, lime juice, and water. Stir and allow the sauce to heat through, about 2 minutes.

Lastly, add bell pepper, onions, cilantro, broccoli, and noodles to the sauce and toss to coat. Top with peanuts and serve immediately.

Vegetarian Thai Noodles With Spicy Peanut Sauce

Thai food provides a distinctive balance among sweet, sour, spicy, and salty ingredients, and these noodles are smothered in a sauce that highlights all four.  Don’t let the word spicy intimidate you; this recipe features subtle heat.  If you want more heat in your noodles, add ¼ teaspoon of red pepper flakes to the sauce.
