Peanut and prawn 10 minute Noodles

We love noodles in our house. I lived in Hong Kong for a couple of years as a child and the food there was amazing. It has definitely influenced my cooking. These could also be seen as a total cheats way to make Pad Thai, which I love. These noodles are a super quick meal and can be made from storecupboard ingredients plus whatever veggies you have to hand. I’ve adapted these from a Nigella recipe.

I’ve found they are great (but messy) food for a baby, mine loved getting his hands into the sticky noodles! Miss K loves anything with noodles and emptied her plate and asked for the same meal the next day and the hubby (who doesn’t like peanut butter – sssssh) loves them too. I really must make these more often.

We tend to keep this as a summery meal as it is better eaten warm or cold. Why not make extra and keep it for lunch the next day.
