What’s In These Instant Pot Noodles with Peanut Butter?

Onion, Garlic, Carrots, Asparagus, Green Onions, Bell Pepper  – I stock up on organic produce with Misfits Market  – they have a fantastic selection of in-season fruits & veggies, healthy pantry items, and great food finds for a fraction of grocery store prices! You can get $10 off your first $30 box by clicking here! 

 

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: I like to use this fruity Zoe olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color- it’s inexpensive & I like to keep a few liters stocked up in my pantry.  For the quality of oil you get, it’s an excellent value.
  • Long Pasta – I used a whole wheat pasta like this one, which has higher fiber than normal pastas.
  • Peanut Butter: for that creamy classic peanut noodle flavor. Like my peanuts, I only use unsalted peanut butter to keep it healthy.
  • Soy Sauce / or Tamari / or Liquid Aminos – Liquid aminos have a fraction of the sodium, but still a ton of the great flavor of soy sauce.
  • Unseasoned Rice Vinegar – I like to get unseasoned vinegar to control the amount of sugar and salt in this dish.
  • Sriracha – for a little heat!  We go through this sriracha like crazy, its great on soups, curries, and noodle salads.
  • Lime Juice

How Do I Make Pressure Cooker Peanut Noodles with Satay Sauce?

  1. Set your Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker to Sauté Mode. Add the olive oil, onions, and garlic and sauté for 5 to 6 minutes until they begin to soften. Add the bell peppers, carrots, asparagus, and green onions to the pot. Stir well.
  2. Add the peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sriracha, and stir well.
  3. Break the noodles in half, and spread them over the vegetables in a fan-like pattern. 
  4. Add the water, so it just covers the noodles. Close the lid, and seal. Cook for 4 minutes. Quick release the pressure.
  5. Remove lid, stir the noodles, and add the lime juice. Allow to sit for 5 minutes, as the sauce will thicken.  Serve hot, and add cooked protein if desired.

Instant Pot Noodles for the Easiest Meal Prep Ever

For all my recipes I use the 8-Quart Instant Pot Ultra, its larger than the standard models (which are only 6 quart) so I have extra room to meal prep and batch cook more meals for the week. The Ultra model also has some great extra settings like cake baking and yogurt making which are really neat. I love that everything can cook in one pot, which makes for way less dishes and hands-off cooking. The Instant Pot is hands-down my favorite kitchen appliance, and actually makes my life so much easier.
