Ten Minute Plant-Based Peanut Noodles

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 10 mins


  • Cast Iron Skillet


  • 1 red bell pepper or any other vegetable you like
  • 1/4 peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 package Trader Joe’s heart of palm noodles
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1.5 cups spinach


  • Warm 1 tablespoon oil over high heat. Add 1 bell pepper or some broccoli florets and saute for 3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the peanut sauce: 1/4 cup peanut butter, 3 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 tablespoon rice vinegar, 2 tablespoons water, 1 tablespoon sriracha, 2 teaspoons honey, and shake, shake, shake.
  • Add 2 minced garlic cloves to the skillet and stir for 1 minute. Then add 1 package of heart of palm noodles to the skillet and season with some salt. After 2 minutes stir in the sauce (not all of it, just enough to coat the noodles) and a big handful of torn spinach or kale. Saute until everything looks delicious.
  • Garnish with some cilantro or sesame seeds!


p.s. lots of questions came up about the noodles! they definitely taste like the main ingredient, heart of palm! The sauce totally covers it up and the noodles have a great crunchiness so you’re essentially eating a bowl of vegetables with peanut sauce.
