Hoisin Peanut Noodles
Thick + sticky hoisin noodles that are quick and easy to prepare. Flavorful, simple to customize, and so satisfying.
- 8 oz. rice noodles (I use 3 ramen cakes*)
- 2 green onions
- 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
- Optional for serving: fresh cilantro, peanuts, cashews, etc.
For the hoisin-peanut sauce:
- 3 Tbsp. hoisin sauce (gluten-free if desired**)
- 1 Tbsp. peanut butter (creamy, natural)
- 1 tsp. pure maple syrup
- 1-2 Tbsp. water (to thin)
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- Optional: freshly grated ginger
Cook noodles according to package instructions.
Meanwhile, thinly slice green onions. Set aside.
Make the sauce: In a medium bowl, add all sauce ingredients and whisk until smooth and peanut butter is combined.
When noodles are cooked, drain, and immediately add hot noodles to sauce. Add green onions. Gently toss to combine. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
Serve immediately. Garnish with fresh cilantro, cashews, peanuts, or a splash of tamari if desired.
*Noodles: My favorite is Lotus Foods "Millet & Brown Rice" ramen noodles. Or simply use 8 oz. of your favorite rice noodles or other noodles.
**For a gluten-free hoisin sauce: I use San-J brand.
Leftovers: Noodles will thicken and become sticky as they sit. If reheating leftovers, I add a splash of water first to help rehydrate.
