You know those nights when you’re super busy, your brain is going in a million directions and the question “what are we doing for dinner?” seems to just creep up at the most horrible moment possible? One of our favorite fast, cheap, quick and easy meals is what we call, “Peanut Butter Ramen”. I know that probably sounds absolutely disgusting, but it’s actually really good! If you like Thai food, actually, even if you don’t like Thai food (because I don’t, Greg does) you need to give this concoction a try…
1 Package of Ramen Noodles (any flavor is okay, but we recommend Chicken)
2 Tablespoons of Chunky Peanut Butter
1 Tablespoon of Soy Sauce
2 Teaspoons of Sriracha Chili Sauce (found in the International food section)
1 Thinly Sliced Scallion for Garnish (optional)
Start out by prepping the Ramen Noodles as directed on the package. Once it’s finished, drain most of the broth – only leave about a tablespoon or two. While the noodles are still hot, add the chunky peanut butter. Once the peanut butter is melted completely, add the soy sauce and Sriracha and stir until everything is evenly combined.
This is the point where Greg likes to add more Sriracha but let me warn you, it’s HOT. Call me a whimp, but I stick with 2 teaspoons.
Garnish with a few slices of scallions and you’re good to go! If you want something a little extra, add some grilled chicken. Make sure you eat it while it’s still hot!
