Day 283 – Ramen Noodle Upgrade


I’ll admit it. I enjoy Ramen noodles every once in a while. I’ll never understand how people can dump that whole seasoning packet in there though. A little sprinkle is all I need. This pin about a Ramen Noodle Upgrade caught my eye. When I saw that it was a spicy peanut flavor that they were going for, I was all over it.


  • 1 package Ramen noodles
  • 1 pack noodle flavoring (I only used about 1/4 packet of the chicken flavor)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chunky peanut butter (I only had creamy)
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha chili sauce
  • 1/2 scallion, thinly sliced (optional)


Boil noodles with flavor pack and drain off most of the liquid. Toss with soy sauce, peanut butter, and Sriracha. Garnish with scallion. Eat immediately.

Mmmm! This was really tasty! I am a big fan of the Thai spicy peanut sauce, so I knew I would enjoy this. I do wish that I had chunky peanut butter though. Those little bits of crunchy peanuts would have been great in there.

  1. I’ve seen this ramen ‘recipe’ a few times now and I’m curious to try it. Thing is I am peanut allergic. I use a sub called wowbutter (soynut butter) when I have a hankering for pb&j and pb cookies. I wonder if it would work in this recipe. I’m very tempted to give it a try for lunch today. My kids call them ‘curly’ noodles and they like them either with butter and parm cheese or with some house of tsang stir fry sauce.

  2. Made these for lunch and loved the first half of the bowl. I can’t finish the other half.
    1. Too much sriracha for me. Next time I’ll halve it.
    2. Mine was clumpy, but after rereading this, I drained ALL the water and I see now, I wasn’t supposed to. I can also guess that my chemically altered ‘nutty butter’ might have a different texture than traditional peanut butters, which might also account.

    But it wasn’t horrible, it got it’s point across and I’m willing to try it again. After I stop breathing fire…

  3. JUST made it and am eating it as we speak! Seriously though, I would not have expected something this good to come from a pack of ramen. I’m in love! Thank you so so much!
