Spicy Sesame Peanut Noodles

Spicy Peanut Sesame Noodles

Makes 8 servings

This creamy, hearty noodle dish is the very best way East could possibly meet West. Add as much or as little chili sauce as you like for a slight kick or of a full-on wallop, and enjoy it hot or cold. I promise, it’ll be delicious either way!


  • 1 box thin spagetthi, soba noodles, or pasta of choice

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

  • 1/3 cup soy sauce (low-sodium preferred)

  • 4 tbsp sesame oil

  • 2 tbsp chili garlic sauce, or to taste (I used Huy Fong brand, the same company that makes sriracha. You can find it in any Asian grocery store.)

  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar

  • 1 tbsp garlic powder, or 1 fresh clove, minced very finely

  • 1-2 tbsp sugar

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil, as needed

  • 1 finely sliced green onion, for garnish


  1. Cook pasta according to the direction on the box. Make sure to salt the water to give your noodles flavor.

  2. Combine all other ingredients in a bowl or blender, and blend or whisk together until completely combined. It should have a runny consistency.

  3. Remove the noodles from the water and toss with the sauce in a large bowl. I like to put a little sauce on the bottom of the bowl and then dump the rest on top for easy distribution.

  4. Eat hot or chill in the fridge and enjoy cold. Top with sliced green onion and enjoy!
