Easy Peanut Noodle Vegetable Bowl


For the Peanut Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar or lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1-2 teaspoons sriracha or chili garlic sauce (adjust to taste)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger (optional)
  • 1/4 cup warm water (adjust for desired consistency)

For the Noodles and Vegetables:

  • 8 ounces rice noodles or your choice of noodles
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, julienned or thinly sliced
  • 1 cucumber, julienned or thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage (red or green)
  • 1 cup snap peas or snow peas, trimmed and halved
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2-3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts (for garnish)
  • Lime wedges (for serving)


  1. Cook the Noodles: Prepare the noodles according to the package instructions. Once cooked, drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process and prevent them from sticking. Set aside.
  2. Make the Peanut Sauce: In a medium bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar or lime juice, honey or maple syrup, sriracha, minced garlic, and grated ginger (if using). Gradually add the warm water, whisking until you achieve a smooth, pourable sauce. Adjust the consistency by adding more water if necessary.
  3. Prepare the Vegetables: While the noodles are cooking, prepare the vegetables by slicing them as directed. You can use a vegetable peeler, mandoline, or sharp knife to get thin, even slices.
  4. Combine the Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked noodles, sliced bell pepper, carrot, cucumber, shredded cabbage, snap peas, cilantro, and green onions.
  5. Add the Sauce: Pour the peanut sauce over the noodle and vegetable mixture. Toss everything together until well coated with the sauce.
  6. Serve: Divide the peanut noodle vegetable mixture into bowls. Garnish with chopped peanuts and extra cilantro if desired. Serve with lime wedges on the side for an extra burst of flavor.
  7. Enjoy: This dish can be served immediately at room temperature or chilled for a refreshing cold noodle salad.


  • Protein Addition: Add tofu, grilled chicken, or shrimp for extra protein.
  • Vegetable Variations: Feel free to use any vegetables you have on hand, such as broccoli, edamame, or zucchini.
  • Make Ahead: The peanut sauce can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Enjoy your easy and flavorful peanut noodle vegetable bowl!
