Sounds strange, but peanuts are a great compliment to noodles and chilli. Garnish with thinly sliced green onions and some chopped whole peanuts.


Serves: 4 

  • 250g fresh Chinese noodles
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons hot chilli paste (optional)
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 30g chopped unsalted peanuts

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Cook noodles in a large saucepan of boiling water and then drain.
  2. Meanwhile, combine stock, ginger, soy sauce, peanut butter, honey, chilli paste and garlic in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until peanut butter melts and heats through. Adjust seasonings if necessary.
  3. Toss through noodles using 2 spoons. Garnish with spring onions and peanuts.


If you don't have chilli paste, use minced red chilli to taste.

Used different ingredients. I was so happy to find this recipe! Its nearly identical to one which was served in a restraunt where I used to work. The dish was called Thai Chicken. To recreate it I addded shredded chicken breast, julienned carrots and cabbage. Really tasty either way! - 21 Jul 2008


Great recipe, easy and tasty. I will make this again, and I am planning on trying one reviewers suggestion to add coconut milk. - 21 Jul 2008


I love this recipe. One of my favourite dishes is cold sesame noodles. This recipe might be made with peanut butter, but it's the best home version I've found. I've spent the last two months making this sauce at least three or four times a week, using recipes from all over the internet - including those of celebrity chefs. But for ease of preparation and great taste, this recipe is just my favourite. If you want to play around with it, you can try adding sesame oil or a little vinegar to cut the sweetness - but I think it's best as it is. spring onions cut on the bias, julienned cucumbers, julienned carrots, chopped peanuts, or toasted sesame seeds all make fantastic additions. This sauce is savoury, sweet, spicy, smooth, sticky, kid friendly, fast, cheap, and delicious. Try it! - 21 Jul 2008
