Thai Satay Noodles

I haven’t eaten Asian food in a while, and I’ve really missed the amazing spicy flavours, so I thought I’d make a Thai inspired noodle dish that I found in one of my favourite cookbooks; I thought the spices would go well together, and the peanut butter would make it a healthy, filling meal which would prepare me for going out tonight! Is it really weird of me that I always get really hungry at 2am whenever I go out?

Anyway, I’d definitely recommend this dish as it’s so quick and easy, and the peanut satay sauce is a really lovely contrast to the fresh green vegetables, and is sure to keep me going into the early hours of the morning… Do you guys have any sure-fire filling meals that you make for yourself before nights out? I’m planning on doing a really good breakfast tomorrow morning if I’m up for it, so I’ll be sure to let you know if filling my belly with loads of lovely Thai food led to a better night!

Hope you like the recipe :)

  1. Love peanutty noodles :) I never quite found the perfect pre-going out meal…2am hunger was frequently an issue! Lots of starchy carbs (to fill up) with a decent amount of protein and not too low fat (to stay full) was what I normally tried to aim for though. Straight carbs would be asking for the 2 am munchies…a bit distracting when you’re out…but I normally enjoyed the toast and cereal binge when I came in! xx

  2. Thai food is one of my favourite foods and peanuts in it just makes it even better! I’ve made a similar sauce in the past and it really is super yum! Very nice!
