There is this place called Shu Jiao Fu Zhou in NYC that is famous for their peanut butter noodles. It's literally just a plate of wheat noodles on top of peanut butter sauce and soy sauce and apparently they are amazing. I haven't been able to try it due to pure laziness but one day I totally will. However until then I will make my peanut butter noodles at home.
I've known about this place for about two years and every now and then I will look at their yelp pictures just to see the creamy delicious peanut butter noodles and yesterday was another one of those days. I was starting to crave them so I went back home and just winged it. Threw some peanut butter and water together until I got the right consistency, added in some soy sauce and sesame oil and bam! Peanut butter sauce! You could even add some sriracha to it if you're feeling spicy.
It's super easy to make if your in a pinch, haven't gone to the grocery store in weeks, or just plain lazy these noodles are easiest way to cure your hungry. They take less than 10 minutes to makes and have only 5 ingredients! What's better than that?
2 Tablespoons of Creamy peanut butter
2 1/2 Tablespoons of Water
1 Tablespoon of Sesame oil
1 Tablespoon of Soy sauce
2 servings of noodles
Scallion (for garnish)
In a pot bring salted water to a boil and cook your noodles according to the package.
In a large bowl mix together the peanut butter, water, sesame oil, and soy sauce until smooth and creamy. If its too thick add a little bit of water to thin it out. You want the consistency of heavy cream.
Once the noodles are done, drain them, and place them in the large bowl that contains the peanut sauce.
Mix to combine, top with scallions, and eat immediately!
