There's something about rice noodles with peanut sauce that just hit different, especially if you're a peanut lover like me.Spicy peanut noodles are one of my favourite South East Asian dishes, so I knew I had to try recreating it at home. Note that this recipe may not use authentic techniques or ingredients, but I used what was accessible to me.


– Rice noodles – Red curry paste – Soy sauce – Chicken broth – Rice vinegar – Peanut butter – Honey – Olive or sesame oil – Garlic – Ginger – Ground chicken – Coleslaw mix – Spinach


– Cilantro – Peanuts – Green onions – Sriracha or chili crunch

Can I make peanut noodles with tofu?

Yes, you can! I recommend draining your tofu and slicing it into even sized pieces (about 1 inch cubes). Add to a large bowl and toss in corn starch. Add 1 teaspoon sesame oil, 3 tablespoon soy sauce and toss. Place in the oven or air fryer  at 400F for about 20 minutes (flipping halfway).

How spicy are these noodles?

The thing I love the most about this recipe is you can completely customize how spicy they are based on your own personal preference! Add as much or as little chili crunch or sriracha sauce as you would like!


To make gluten-free: Swap the soy sauce for tamari or coconut aminos. To make dairy-free: This recipe is naturally dairy-free. To make vegan: Skip the chicken and swap the chicken broth for veggie broth. For a plant-based protein option, try crumbled tofu or a "veggie ground" alternative. You can also try my tofu stir fry for a similar vegan recipe.
