RECIPE: Peanut Butter Noodles

By request.

We served these at our holiday party. They were a huge hit.


  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons hot chile paste (optional)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces Udon noodles
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add noodles and cook until tender according to package directions. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, combine chicken broth, ginger, soy sauce, peanut butter, honey, chili paste, and garlic in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until peanut butter melts and is heated through. Add noodles, and toss to coat. Garnish with green onions and peanuts.

How did they turn out?

I used the wrong type of noodles, i think. instead of udon (which I couldn't find), I just used angel hair pasta. possibly because of that, it was clumpy.

probably a good segue into how to determine what are acceptable ingredient substitutions, huh?
