Vegan Peanutty Pho Style Pasta

I had never thought that are such things has putting peanut butter into your pasta recipe! It taste amazing and the lime juice makes it taste like it came from a Pho restaurant! My only regret was that I added a few tablespoons too much of peanut butter . . . making the sauce a bit too thick for my taste >< But all is well! Follow me on this blog for more blog updates! Enjoy :)

Serves 4-6 people

1 lb fettuccine pasta
1 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/3 or 1/2 cup peanut butter (I used creamy)
1 tbsp chili-garlic sauce
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp sesame oil
4 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
2 carrots, peeled and shredded
1/2 cup peanuts, roughly chopped, for garnishing
2 tbsp cilantro, roughly chopped


  1. Bring a large pot of heavy salted water to boil. Then cook the pasta noodles as direction on the box. Drain and rinse in cold water, and drain again. Return noodles back into pot and set aside.
  2. To make the sauce: Combine coconut milk, water, maple syrup, soy sauce, peanut butter, chili-garlic sauce, ginger, and garlic in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisking often, continue cooking until sauce thickens (you can add 1 tbsp cornstarch if it is too watery). Remove from heat and add in the lime juice, sesame oil, and cilantro.
  3. Toss the noodles with the sauce, scallion, and carrots. Add to your 4-6 pasta dishes and garnish with chopped peanuts. Enjoy!!!
