Why You'll Love Peanut Butter Ramen

If you love ramen hacks, you've got to try this one. Ramen with a lightly spicy peanut butter sauce is so creamy and delicious!

You may have seen the Tiktok peanut butter ramen videos (there are so many good ones) and this is a take on those. You'll combine a few simple ingredients you probably already have in your pantry for a fantastic lunch or dinner.

Ramen noodles, sriracha, honey, grated garlic, peanut butter, sesame seeds, ramen seasoning, chopped green onions, and water.

PB Ramen Ingredients

Ramen - You'll need 1 packet of instant ramen with a seasoning packet. Or, you can use dried (not fried) ramen noodles and 1 tablespoon of this Homemade Ramen Seasoning.

Peanut Butter - You'll use 1 tablespoon of creamy peanut butter.

Chili Sauce - You'll use 1 teaspoon of sriracha sauce or any other kind of chili sauce you'd like. If you like spicier ramen, double or triple the amount of sriracha. One teaspoon will give you a hint of heat.

Sweetener - You'll need 1/2 teaspoon of honey or any other liquid sweetener like agave or maple syrup.  

Garlic - You'll need 1 clove of garlic. You'll grate this so it's easily dispersed in the sauce. If you don't have fresh garlic, you can use 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder.

Optional Toppings - you can top your ramen with 1 tablespoon of chopped green onions and a sprinkle of white and black sesame seeds.

Reserve - You'll need to reserve 3/4 cup of the water you cooked the ramen in. You'll combine this with the peanut butter and other ingredients to make the sauce for the noodles. If you like soupier ramen, use 1 cup of water. If you like less watery ramen, use 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water.

Cooking Tips - Make sure to reserve 3/4 cup of the cooking water after you've cooked your noodles. This will 'melt' the peanut butter and other ingredients to create the sauce.

Specialty Ingredients - I like using sriracha sauce for this recipe (although you can use any kind of chili oil or sauce) as well as black sesame seeds.

Diet/Allergy Alternatives - If you'd like this recipe to be vegan, make sure to use ramen with a veggie-only seasoning packet and substitute the honey for agave.
