How to make:
Asian stir-fry noodles with veggies and peanut butter
Quick stir-fry, simple and deliciously creamy
If there's one thing that can only make any meal better, it's lime and peanut butter. That's why this dish has both and it's a dream! Perfect when you need to be quick, but also want something nutritious and tasty at the same time. Some of the vegetables are soft and some stay crunchy. The stir-fry noodles are done in minutes and perfectly hold the sauce. All topped off with peanut butter adds wonderful creaminess. A drizzle of lime makes the flavor palette perfect!
This recipe is handy because you can swap out the veggies as you like and repurpose leftovers from the fridge. My stir-fry noodles are made to be cooked in just a little water or sauce and they are cooked through in about 4 minutes. You can find these or similar in any supermarket. Just make sure if you want it to be vegan there's no added egg but just semolina. For peanut butter, I find the creamy varieties without any other additives are best, but you can simply use your favorite kind.
