What We’re Cooking This Weekend: Chili Sesame Peanut Noodles
Need something you can make in 15 minutes or less that is still addictingly delicious? This Chili Sesame Peanut Noodle dish is perfect for those days when you just want a quick and easy meal that doesn’t lack in taste. Many of these ingredients are staples that you may already have lying around in your kitchen.
If you want to make this a peanut-free recipe you can swap out the peanut butter ingredient for almond butter, or if you want to make this a completely nut-free recipe you can try using tahini instead. The flavor profile will be different, but you won’t be losing any of the creamy nutty-ness that the peanut butter brings. Try frying up some sliced tofu or your favorite vegan meat substitute for some added protein on top.
