Cold Peanut Noodles

  • 1/2 lb. spaghetti or ramen noodles
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 45 grams crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 Tbs soy sauce
  • 2 Tbs rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tbs brown sugar
  • 2 Tbs vegetable oil

  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled & chopped
  • Fresh scallions & extra sesame seeds for topping


  1. In a large pot, bring water to a boil and cook your pasta or noodles. Once cooked, drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a blender, combine the remaining ingredients except for the scallions and extra sesame seeds.
  3. Transfer the cooked pasta to a large bowl, mix with the peanut sauce, and toss to coat evenly.
