I had a major craving for some Thai Peanut Noodles. I knew I didn’t want to get carryout because I wouldn’t know the points.
So I decided to make my own! I have a Chicken Peanut Ramen Skillet recipe that is really good, but I wanted just noodles.
For the Chicken Peanut Ramen Skillet I used PB2 powder instead of peanut butter. For this Thai Peanut Noodle recipe I wanted to use real peanut butter.
Don’t get me wrong, I really like the PB2 powder. Sometimes there’s just nothing like the real thing!
My favorite recipe using PB2 powder is my Frozen Peanut Butter Cups. They are so good and only 1 point each!
I used reduced-fat peanut butter for the Thai Peanut Noodles. That helped to save some points.
This recipe came out to 9 points per serving for blue, green and purple. That’s a little higher than most of my recipes, but that’s ok. Sometimes you have to splurge when you have a craving.
Plus I know my recipe is lower in points than getting carryout would have been.
This is an easy recipe that’s ready in about 20 minutes!
You can always serve this with some grilled chicken or vegetables.
Yield: 4 servings (9 points per serving)
- 8 oz. Linguine noodles
- 1/4 cup reduced fat peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons reduced-soduim soy sauce
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon granulated Splenda or other sugar substitute
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- green onions (optional)
Cook linguine noodles according to the directions on the box. Drain.
Add the peanut butter, soy sauce, garlic, water, rice vinegar, Splenda, sesame oil and ginger to a pan. Whisk together over low heat. Once the peanut butter is melted and the sauce is smooth toss in the noodles. Serve and sprinkle the green onions over top.
