Peanut Sauce

  • 1/4 c hot water
  • 4 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tsp sriracha (or to taste)
  • red chili flakes (to taste)
  • 2 tbsp soy
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar

Additional Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1 packet of ramen
  • a few extra tbsps of water (as needed)
  • Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel Seasoning (optional)
  • green onions (for garnish)


  • In a bowl, mix your hot water with your peanut butter to emulsify. This will make it easier for the peanut butter to mix in with the other sauce ingredients.
  • Next, add in your sriracha, soy sauce, rice vinegar, red chili flakes, and honey and mix together well.
  • Cook one packet of ramen according to package instructions. (Usually takes under 5 minutes).
  • While the noodles are cooking, sauté your garlic in oil on medium heat for about 20 seconds and add in about 1/2 of the sauce you made earlier (or to preference). I had about 1 full cup of sauce so I use half a cup per serving.
  • Turn the heat to low, and cook the sauce for about a minute and then add in your noodles.
  • You can also add some extra water to help the sauce emulsify further and coat the noodles a little easier.
  • Finish by garnishing with green onions and TJ's Everything But the Bagel Seasoning! If you don't have that, you can use a combo of salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and sesame seeds (those are the main ingredients in the TJ's seasoning).
