Peanut butter udon

This recipe is an American take on the Chinese Shaxian noodles recipe. I used Japanese udon, because I love the texture, but they can be replaced with your favorite noodles.

Here's the peanut butter udon recipe!


- 1 portion udon (I used the pre-cooked ones to be found in boiling water for 1 minute)

- 1 large spoonful of peanut butter

- 1 tablespoon soy sauce

- 1 teaspoon sesame oil

- 1 teaspoon hot sauce (I used tobanjan)

- 1/2 teaspoon sugar

- 1 crushed garlic

- 1 piece grated ginger

- finely sliced spring onion (only the green part)

- crumbled peanuts

- Sesame seeds


- Prepare the creamy sauce by mixing the peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, hot sauce, sugar, garlic, ginger and a little hot water in a bowl.

- Cook the udon and drain them.

- Mix the udon with the sauce. Garnish with crumbled peanuts, sesame seeds and spring onion.
