Delight your tastebuds with these nutty and savoury noodles that are truly comforting.
Winters are calling, and with that, the cravings for all things hot hit the roof. Nothing does it better than my soul-warming Sesame Peanut Butter Noodles.
Delicious with a kick of umami flavours, these noodles are apt for any occasion- weeknight dinners, lazy Sunday lunches, or evening snacks for your kids. The ingredients are straightforward and easily available in your pantry.
Peanut butter and sesame oil add richness to the sauce while ensuring the glaze sits well on the noodles. I’ve only added red capsicum to my recipe but you can add more veggies to the mix suited to your taste. These delicious noodles have my kids’ hearts and mine too.
