Sesame Peanut Noodles

In this month’s edition of Taste & Create, the talented Nicole paired me with HoneyB of The Life and Loves of Grumpy’s Honeybunch. She has such an amazing blog and is quite the baker.

I actually bookmarked about 10 recipes that I wanted to try, sadly knowing I could only enter one for T&C. But, oh, the mac and cheese and the galette truly made me want to reach in and grab a bite!

I chose the Sesame Peanut Noodles. We would have this quite often when we were in California, but I haven’t seen it here in India and so, I was excited to see this recipe. Its creamy and peanut-ty and lovely!


Sesame Peanut Noodles
(modified slightly from the original recipe)

6 oz Noodles, cooked and cooled (I used thick Udon noodles)

Sauce:
1/3 cup Peanut Butter, smooth
1/2 cup Water
3 tbsp Ketchup
3 tbsp Hoisin Sauce
2 tbsp Soy Sauce
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 tbsp Rice Vinegar
1 tbsp Sesame Oil

Garnish:
2 Scallions, greens and whites separated
2-3 tbsp Peanuts, crushed (this is the only part that I modified from the original)

Combine all the ingredients for the sauce and heat on medium in a saucepan. Stir until well mixed together.


Mix the heated sauce with the cooked noodles. Garnish with the scallion greens and peanuts.


Thanks, HoneyB. We loved the noodles and will definitely be making it again.
