Just before I started uni, Mum introduced me to these amazing vegan Thai Peanut Noodles. Being a Thai food fan, it soon became one of my favourites and I cooked it so many times at my place. 

There is always HOMEMADE THAI PASTE, green and red in my fridge. However, for this recipe, I have used peanut butter and thai sweet chilli for the sauce. It definitely tastes so much better than takeaways, is healthier and packed with nutrition.

Noodles- I have used dried egg-free noodles but you can use fresh egg noodles or dried pasta such as linguine. 

Sesame oil - We love to use toasted sesame oil in our noodles recipe, but if you can't find use normal sesame or peanut oil.

Vegetables - For this recipe, you will need colourful vegetables which can be cooked in a short time such as carrots, capsicum, spring onion, ginger and garlic. 

Peanut Sauce - As the recipe name suggests, we will need peanut butter, soy sauce and to add a little kick to the noodles sriracha or any other HOT chilli sauce will do the job. I used a mixture of smooth and crunchy peanut butter but you can either. If you use crunchy, you can leave out the addition of the roasted peanuts. 

Sweetener - These noodles are a combination of all the flavours. sweet, spicy and little tangy, for sweetener we have used Thai sweet chilli sauce but if you can't find it, brown or regular sugar will do the same trick. For tanginess use lime or lemon juice. 

Garnish - There is no doubt that once the noodles are ready, you want to dig in but a garnish would make the dish extra special and attractive, use freshly chopped coriander, crushed roasted peanuts and spring onion greens. Serve with lime/lemon wedges.
