Peanut Noodle Soup

Jilly sent in this interesting sounding soup. I had to ask about the peanut butter since I’ve never added peanut butter to a soup, but Jilly says it’s good. If you guys try it, let me know in the comments. This reminds me that I also need to get some fish sauce since every time I cook, I never have any…

  • 1 package chicken flavor ramen
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed or minced ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 heaping tablespoon peanut butter (crunchy preferred)
  • 1 thinly sliced green onion + tops
  • red pepper flakes to taste
  • fish sauce (optional) to taste
  • chopped peanuts if not using crunchy peanut butter

Put the ginger, garlic, and flavor packet from the ramen in the water and bring to a boil. Add the noodles and cook as directed. Remove the pan from heat and add the peanut butter, stirring until dissolved. Fish sauce may be added here if you’re using it (I don’t). Pour into bowl and top with pepper flakes and green onion, also peanuts if using. Enjoy!
