These 5-Minute Creamy Peanut Noodles are ready in a flash – the perfect easy vegan meal! Made with gluten-free rice noodles, you can make the simple 5-ingredient miso peanut sauce while the noodles soak. This recipe yields one serving but is easy to multiply as needed.


  • 2 oz. rice noodles (I recommend the kind that cook in a few minutes when soaked in boiling water like these or these)
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter or tahini for nut-free
  • 1 tablespoon white miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon chili crisp, or more to taste
  • Juice of 1 lime or 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • Hot water, to get sauce to the right consistency
  • Chili crisp, sesame seeds, + green onions, to garnish


  1. Cook the noodles according to package instructions – this is definitely quickest to make if you can find soakable rice noodles (like these rice noodles that I used or these maifun noodles that cook even more quickly) and cover them with hot water while you make the sauce.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, miso, tamari, chili crisp, and lime juice. Add a little bit of hot water, about a tablespoon at a time, and whisk again, adding more water until your desired consistency is reached. It should be pretty thick but drizzly and pourable.
  3. Toss in the drained noodles and mix to combine. garnish with chili crisp, sesame seeds, green onions, and/or more lime juice. enjoy!!
