Ginger, Lime, garlic and peanut butter create a luscious Thai sauce for these whole wheat noodles! A delicious and flavorful meal that is under 400 calories!
There is one thing that I can’t live without while I am watching what I eat. Carbs. Oh man. I love my carbs. That is why my number one pregnancy craving was this Spaghetti Factory’s Browned Butter Mizithra Spaghetti. I just love a good plate of pasta and some warm bread.
I also love anything thai or chinese. These Peanut Ginger Noodles were amazing! The flavor of the ginger, lime, garlic, and peanut butter combined to make an amazing flavor combination for these noodles. I especially loved the fresh veggies hidden inside. Everything about this recipe turned out amazing. If you are looking for a meatless, flavorful, healthy and easy meal, then this one is just for you!

HI! Just wondering, did you use the kind of smooth peanut butter with sugar in it, or did you use the sugar-free type from the heath food store. I image the sugar (or lack of) would make a big difference.
This is amazing recipe, so full of flavour – yum. I added mushrooms because i had left. And string beans.
This was really good – we doubled the peanut butter, added a tablespoon of honey and one chopped Serrano to the peanut sauce. Amazing! One lime peel and the juice was just perfect. Used a whole pound of pasta, 2 large carrots, triple the ginger and about 6 green onions. Could have used the whole bunch.
That sounds delicious! I am so glad that you made it your own! Thanks so much for sharing! XOXO
I made this tonight and it was good and came out looking exactly like the picture! That doesn’t always happen. Great recipe and good calorie count.
I just tried this tonight and it’s delish! I’m always on the look out for healthy, vegetarian dishes so I was very happy to see this. Thanks for sharing!
These noodles look absolutely perfect! I love anything with Thai flavors and PB, but… I almost never get to eat that combo unless we go out to dinner because my guy hates PB with a passion. Sad day. Oh well, at least it means I never have to share! 😉 Pinned!
