Noodles and Company Indonesian Peanut Sauté

My boyfriend and I eat at Noodles and Company a lot because they have so many vegetarian (and even vegan) choices. In a previous blog post, I wrote about Noodles and Company Pasta Fresca. My favorite dish is actually the Indonesian Peanut Sauté. I set out to create it at home.

Noodles and Company Indonesian Peanut Sauté

I found a great recipe on Favorite Family Recipes. I really like how it turned out, but it was a little heavy on the peanut butter. I’ll measure more carefully next time!

Here’s my version of the recipe.

1 pound rice noodles (I didn’t like the brand I bought – need to visit Mitsuwa soon)


1 cup vegetable broth
6 heaping tablespoons creamy peanut butter
4 teaspoons sriracha (I❤ Rooster Sauce)
3 tablespoons honey
6 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons fresh minced ginger
5 cloves garlic minced (don’t forget to use this garlic peeling trick)


1 cup chopped brocoli
1/2 of a red cabbage, sliced
1 cup shoestring carrots


limes wedges
more sriracha

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, mix all the sauce ingredients and cook over medium low heat until combined.
  3. In a large sauté pan, cook the vegetables until they begin to soften.
  4. Turn off the heat, add the sauce and noodles to the sauté pan and combine.
  5. Top with a lime wedge, Sriracha, cilantro and sprouts.

  3. I love spicy things. I love this dish. By the way, do you know where I could find the ingredients to that. Thank you

  4. It was amazing except that it was way way way too gingery😦 I think I will add only 2 tablespoons next time and then maybe keep everything else the same. it was definitely spicy and very very similar to the dish at Noodles and Company!!🙂
