These Gochujang Peanut Sauce Noodles are beyond delicious, with a spicy and flavorful sauce and lots of bright veggies. If you’re looking for a new go-to lunch or light dinner, this dish is for you!
These noodles are the perfect combination of spice, tang, and savory goodness balanced with loads of nutritious and crisp vegetables. The sauce is my new favorite and is perfectly irresistible made with gochujang.
Gochujang sauce is a Korean chili paste that has a kick and goes so well in this peanut sauce and countless other dishes. I always keep a bottle on hand. It is an ingredient that adds big flavor in no time. You can find gochujang in the international aisle of the supermarket near the teriyaki and soy sauces.
If you want to try a substitute, use hoisin sauce – the flavor is different but it will also work really well in this dish. Alternatively, if you would like to avoid the level of spiciness, use a small amount to start with.
