I love finding new ways to elevate my instant ramen and right now this peanut butter ramen is one of my favorites! It’s a super flavorful recipe that I can whip up in no time. Another thing I love about it is that it’s budget friendly.

Ingredients needed

  • Peanut butter
  • Soy sauce
  • Sesame oil
  • Brown sugar
  • Garlic clove (minced)
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Chicken flavored ramen noodles
  • Cilantro (chopped)
  • Green onion (chopped)
  • lime

I don’t find this recipe to be very spicy. However, if you are sensitive to spicy foods you can definitely reduce the amount of red pepper flakes used in this recipe.

For this recipe I will be using half of the seasoning packet that comes with the noodles. You can either use it or discard it. It’s completely up to you. The noodles will be delicious either way.

How to make it

In a bowl combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, garlic and red pepper flakes until a smooth sauce is formed.

Next bring a small pot of water to a boil. Once boiling add the ramen and set aside the seasoning packet. I like to boil my noodles for just 2 minutes as I don’t want my noodles too soft. Next drain the water from the noodles. If you want soupy noodles you can leave about 1/3-1/2 cup of water in the pot. I like both dry noodles and soupy noodles it just depends on what I’m in the mood for. Add half of the seasoning packet and the peanut butter sauce to the pot. Toss the noddles with a pair of tongs to combine with the sauce.
