Healthy ramen with peanut butter
When it comes to cozy Fall meals, there’s nothing I love more than a big bowl of ramen noodles.
While we usually see ramen in the form of soup, (like this easy vegan ramen) ramen is equally delicious when they’re eaten as a big bowl of stir-fried saucy noodles.
This recipe for Thai Peanut Butter Ramen Noodles is made with Mike’s Mighty Good Miso Ramen packs which are the perfect instant ramen noodles to have on hand.
Mike’s Mighty Good ramen noodles are made with simple ingredients, are organic and are made from scratch. Beyond that, they have a wide variety of flavours including vegetarian and vegan options such as the vegetarian vegetable, vegetarian soy sauce and vegetarian kimchi ramen.
Basically, as far as instant ramen noodles go, Mike’s Mighty Good is the best there is!
These ramen noodle packets are also perfect because they can be used to create a more traditional ramen soup recipe (as directed on the pack of the package) or to create a fun recipe using the dried ramen noodles.

Is peanut butter good in ramen?
Yes! Peanut butter and ramen noodles are basically a match made in heaven. The peanut butter in this recipe is used to make a sweet, salty, spicy and tangy Thai peanut butter sauce that coats the ramen noodles and turns them into a delicious meal.
The best type of peanut butter to use
There are so many different types of peanut butter out there these days that sometimes it can be confusing to know which one is the best to use in a recipe.
The good news is for this recipe you can any type of peanut butter there is! You can use traditional creamy peanut butter, natural peanut butter or even crunchy peanut butter. (If you don’t mind little bits of peanuts in your noodles.)
Creamy peanut butter will mix together the easiest and is the “best” type of peanut butter to use, however, I’ve tested out the peanut butter sauce using natural peanut butter and it works perfectly fine. It might just require a little more mixing.
How to make Thai peanut butter ramen
Bring a pot of water to a boil then add the ramen noodles to the pot. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the noodles separate and soften. Then drain.
Mix the peanut butter sauce ingredients together in a small bowl, then pour the peanut butter sauce into the pot of noodles.
Mix together until the noodles are evenly coated. (If you find the peanut butter sauce gets too sticky, add a small splash of water to the pot and mix.) Serve the noodles on their own or top them off with some sliced green onions and sesame seeds.
How to store and reheat
If you have any leftover Thai Peanut Butter Ramen, you can store the noodles in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat the noodles in a pot on the stovetop or in the microwave. If the noodles are sticking together, add a small splash of water to the pot or bowl when reheating. This will help loosen and break apart the noodles.
Tips for making healthy peanut ramen
- Don’t overcook the noodles. One of the most enjoyable things about ramen noodles is that they have a slightly chewy texture to them that is simply delicious! If you overcook the noodles, you’ll end up with a soft and mushy texture.
- Don’t throw away the soup flavour packet. That would be such a waste! Use the soup flavour packet to make a delicious side of miso soup you can enjoy alongside your peanut butter noodles.
- Eat immediately. As the noodles sit, they will start to stick together. Ramen noodles are best enjoyed right away.
- Make it into soup. Prefer your ramen as a soup? No problem! Follow the directions on the packet of ramen to prepare the soup, but add a tablespoon of peanut butter to the broth to create a peanut butter ramen noodle soup.
