Recipe type: dinner
Cuisine: vegetarian
Serves: 1
  • Sauce
  • 3-4 Tbsp almond butter
  • 2-4 Tbsp sriracha sauce, to taste
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove, or 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp tamari, or soy sauce, optional
  • 2-4 tbsp water, as needed
  • salt to taste
  • 1 package instant ramen noodles
  • Handful shredded cabbage
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and cut into match sticks
  • Sesame seeds- for topping
  1. Combine the almond butter, sriracha, lime juice, garlic, tamari, and water 2 tbsp at a time, in a blender and mix until well combined.
  2. Add more water and blend until your desired consistency is reached.
  3. Add salt if you omitted tamari.
  4. Prepare ramen noodles with hot water as directed on the package. I place the noodles in a large mixing bowl, and pour boiling water over them and allow to soak for roughly 5 minutes, until tender.
  5. Drain noodles and toss with sauce.
  6. Top with veggies and sesame seeds and enjoy immediately.
