How Do You Make Veg Peanut Noodles?
First you need to prepare a peanut sauce and then add it to crunchy vegetables and boiled silky noodles.Voila! your Thai Peanut Noodles are ready.
What Ingredients Do You Need for Veg Peanut Noodles?
Noodles-I used fettuccine, but you can use spaghetti or Thai rice noodles. Additionally, using whole wheat noodles will make this dish more filling and nutritious.
Vegetables- I have used English cucumbers, carrots, colored peppers, and purple cabbage. Their textures are crispy and crunchy which go well in the noodles.
Peanut Butter-I have used smooth peanut butter, but chunky is good too.
Soy Sauce-I have used dark soy sauce. I like the flavour profile much better in dark soy sauce.
Red Chilli Sauce-I have used store-bought Thai red chilli sauce.
Can You Store Veg Peanut Noodles?
They taste great as leftovers. You can store them in a glass container. Firstly, heat them in the microwave before serving the next day. If the consistency of the sauce looks too thick the next day, add just one tbsp of hot water before heating it. Mix properly and serve.
