Hot Asian Noodles With Broccoli

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

This recipe was in the Budget Cook section of Woman's Day. This was super easy with a good Asian flavor, and my kids really liked it too! I cooked the broccoli for a full 10 minutes because we like it softer instead of crunchier. Very filling also!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta as package directs, adding broccoli for the last 6 minutes.
  2. Put peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes in a medium bowl.
  3. Drain pasta and broccoli, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Return pasta to pot.
  4. Add reserved cooking liquid to peanut butter mixture, stir until smooth. Then add to pasta.
  5. Toss to mix and coat. Top with carrots and scallions and toss again.

Made this tonight to use up the left over broccoli I had. It tasted good but seemed a little dry. I'm sure the noodles absorbed a lot of the sauce. All in all we liked it but won't be making it again.

Very quick and easy, very delicious. I was out of cider vinegar (note to self, need cider vinegar), so I used white wine vinegar, and I added extra vegetables, some zucchini, mushrooms, baby sweetcorn, and snap peas, because I had them, and they go well with this sort of dish. We finished it all - no leftovers!- and enjoyed it very much. An excellent midweek supper. Made in loving memory of Stacy, a very special lady, taken too soon.
