I love this one-dish meal for an easy, fast and very tasty family-friendly dinner. PLUS, it uses broccoli stems, which usually just get cut off and wasted. Don’t throw those out: use them in Peanut Noodles!
Children love this, and it’s sophisticated enough for adults to feel like they’re not eating “kid food.” A great compromise for the dinner table! Pass green onions and cilantro at the table so everyone can add those only if they want them.

Ingredients:
8 oz spaghetti
3/4 c chicken or vegetable broth

  1. already made it tonight and its delicious. I have already recomended it!

  2. if you want to make it more fragrant :
    since peanut butter is oily, heat p.butter with garlic and chile flakes first (preferably low heat ) till fragrant then add broth, sugar, and soy sauce. If you want the broccoli to absorb more of the flavor, add the broccoli to this mixture. If you want to thicken the soup, add in the pasta water since it contain starch from the pasta.

  3. can I make this without the tofu? my husband and son won’t eat tofu! what should I put in to replace the tofu? thanks for the great sounding recipe! can’t wait to try it!

  4. oh yummy I’m going to make this for dinner

  5. You can use cooked, diced chicken to replace the tofu, or just omit altogether.

    • Thanks so much for your idea! I’ll try it with the cooked, diced chicken! Now why didn’t I think of that! Another blonde moment I guess! Ha! Ha! Thanks again!

  6. Oh goodness thank you for this recipe!
    I used some clear flat asian noodles I had in my pantry, some left over chicken breast I had from last nights ginger soup and threw it in there.
    Stir fried the onion, garlic, and chicken. I also used chunky natural pnut butter instead of creamy and then crush pnuts. Then added every thing else with a yummy addition of spinach I had in the fridge.
    It was super fast I whipped it up last minute for lunch for my husband and I and he couldn’t stop saying how good it was!
    This filled my husband and I up and still had alot left over. This good feed a family of 3 or 4 easy with appropriate serving size. Thank you again!
