Jasmine Kuzner shares three variations for peanut noodles, including a nut-free sauce version!

A delicious option for Friday meatless suppers, peanut noodles are easy to prepare and are versatile enough to please every palate at a dinner table. Peanut noodles can be served warm or cold. The recipe for the peanut sauce below makes enough for one pound of pasta. The recipe for the sauce doubles easily. Adjust accordingly to feed your family and enjoy!

Peanut Noodles Three Ways 

Peanut Sauce


  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter (or ½ tahini paste for nut-free)
  • ⅔ cup soy sauce
  • ⅓ cup rice vinegar (apple cider or white vinegar will work too)
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 2 TBS honey
  • hot, boiled water (have a cup on hand to thin out sauce).


  1. Prepare toppings and mix-ins (see below for three variations).
  2. Make the peanut sauce. In a large bowl, whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, and honey. If the sauce is too thick (it should be thick enough to coat noodles easily but pourable), slowly whisk in hot water to thin.
  3. Cook noodles according to package directions.
  4. Pour peanut sauce on hot noodles and mix in toppings as desired. Enjoy! 
Noodle Options (follow directions on package)
  • Soba noodles
