About this recipe

This almond butter noodle sauce is super easy to make; you just have to whisk the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl and then pour it over the noodles.

You can use Asian noodles, regular pasta, quinoa noodles, buckwheat, ramen noodles, o gluten-free pasta, or soba noodle. Another thing about this recipe is that you can add veggies or not, finish it with nuts and aromatics or eat it as is.

Ingredients

  • Noodles, as I said before, this recipe works with any noodle; choose your favorite.
  • Tamari sauce, sub with soy sauce or coconut aminos.
  • Tahini
  • Almond butter, in a pinch, you can use peanut butter
  • Rice vinegar or any other mild vinegar works here. It is best to use unseasoned rice vinegar.
  • Lime juice or lemon juice.
  • Sesame oil: toasted sesame oil is best here, or spicy toasted sesame oil.

How to make this recipe

Whisk all the almond butter sauce ingredients in a large bowl and put noodles and fresh veggies in a pasta bowl. Then I pour the sauce over the pasta. From there, start adding fresh ingredients; I usually add what I have in the fridge. It tastes fantastic with cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, red bell peppers, carrots, lettuce, spinach, or let your imagination fly.

Finish it with fresh herbs like mint, cilantro, sliced scallions, chopped peanuts, or toasted sesame seeds. If you want to add more e protein to them, crispy tofu is a great idea, edamame or even faux chicken.

give this recipe a twist

  • Make it spicier by adding sriracha sauce
  • Make it sweeter by adding Maple syrup
  • Don´t have noodles? Use brown rice.
  • If you only have five minutes, use precooked noodles or udon noodles

Why I love this recipe

This is a vegan dish that comes together in under ten minutes. And if you mix it with a high protein noodle, like quinoa noodles that have tons of excellent and clean protein, as well as almond butter, and when you put the two together. And on top of that, you add fresh vegetables it is total PERFECTION, don’t you think?

ideas to Use this almond butter sauce
