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 ½ 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 ¼ 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 ¾ 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 ¼ to ½ cup of water.
How to Make this Recipe
Cook the noodles - Cook one packet of ramen noodles according to package directions (reserve ¾ cup ramen cooking water).
Make the sauce - While the ramen is cooking, combine the peanut butter, sriracha, honey, grated garlic, and the ramen seasoning packet in a large soup bowl. Stir to combine. Pour the reserved ramen cooking water into the peanut butter mixture and stir till combined.
Add Noodles - Add the noodles to the bowl and stir till coated with the sauce.
Serve - Top with chopped green onions and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
