I love finding recipes that my whole family loves and that I can whip up in less than half an hour. This Thai Peanut Noodle Bowl recipe is as delicious as it sounds, and the whole recipe is made in one pan!
That combination is like music to my ears as a busy mom. I wanted to incorporate Asian flavours into this dish, but not have it be too spicy, as to appeal to everyone in the family.
It’s got just the right balance of garlic, sesame, and peanut flavours, with a bit of a bite too (which I love). If you’d rather no spice at all, you can take the cayenne pepper out completely. But, my little guy, James didn’t seem to be phased by it!
James can now feed himself with utensils (sort of), which is both exciting (he is SO proud of himself and it frees my hands to do other tasks) and sad because I know deep down that it’s the end of an era for us — no more spoon-feeding babies.
We were given this awesome toddler feeding placemat/bowl when James was born, that stays in place on the counter or table, making mealtime less messy and giving him the independence that he needs with feeding. If you want to try one, here’s a discount link from me to you: EZPZ Mats Discount for Moms 🙂
Another reason I love this recipe is because I always have all of the ingredients on hand, making life a lot easier!

I’m curious if you would replace the peanut butter for a nut free butter in this recipe. If so, which one? Daughter goes to a nut free daycare and I usually send dinner left overs for lunch. Thank you.

Yes of course! I find that both pumpkin seed butter and sunflower seed butter work really well!

How many does this serve?
Sarah Remmer says
I would say 4 full servings, plus leftovers. You could increase the recipe “fullness” by added more cubed chicken.
