Andrea - May 14, 2024, 12:02 p.m.

Hi Sadia!

Can you tell me please roughly how many grams are in one serving?
Thank you!

PUL Team - May 15, 2024, 3:28 a.m.

Hey Andrea, We can't say with certainty, as it will depend on factors like how large your veggies are, but we approximate one serving to be in the ballpark of around 450 grams 😊

Valerie - Feb. 29, 2024, 5:22 a.m.

Absolutely declious and simple to make. I love the sauce too. I also added cubes of tempeh, which was marinated and airfried to the dish. I enjoy watching your videos. My daughter, who is vegan follows your recipes very often. Keep up the good work. Thank you Sadia.

PUL Team - Feb. 29, 2024, 6:53 a.m.

Hey Valerie, adding marinated and air-fried tempeh cubes sounds like a fantastic idea for extra flavour and texture. We appreciate your support, and will be sure to continue creating more delicious content 🤗

Magda - Feb. 10, 2024, 5:30 p.m.

Love the sauce. It's now my go-to stir fry sauce

Richa - Jan. 31, 2024, 8:41 a.m.

Great weeknight dinner. Thank you !!

Mal - Jan. 16, 2024, 4:05 a.m.

The sauce is so tasty!! And I like how easy it is to switch out whatever veggies I have in the fridge. Tastes just as good as leftovers. I add tofu and sub GF noodles.

Penny Shrawder - Jan. 14, 2024, 2:46 a.m.

This is one of my weeknight favorites! I can use all of my veggies and have enough for lunch at work. Everyone asks what smells so good! lol. Of course I tell them about PUL!!!

PUL Team - Jan. 14, 2024, 5:26 a.m.

Aww thanks for spreading the love, Penny! 😊

Sophie Kendall - Jan. 9, 2024, 8:18 p.m.

A new week night staple with whatever veg needs using up!

Imke - Jan. 6, 2024, 6:46 p.m.

It was delicious. I used carrots, shallots and oyster mushrooms. And I put cilantro on everything ;)
The sauce is delicous.
I like your recipes and ideas, thank you so much!

PUL Team - Jan. 9, 2024, 12:08 a.m.

We're so happy to hear you're enjoying the recipes, Imke! Thanks for leaving the lovely review for this Vegetable Noodle Stir-Fry 🙌

Kerstin - Dec. 29, 2023, 12:42 p.m.

We made it today for lunch and it tasted great!

Alma Lazari - Nov. 30, 2023, 9:19 p.m.

Delicious and colourful, this is an amazing recipe! Thank you PUL team, thank you Sadia 🙏

The first time we cooked this, we replaced the cabbage with mushrooms (we didn't have one at home and were too hungry to go shopping!).
So we used mushrooms instead and ended up falling in love with that variation.

PUL Team - Dec. 1, 2023, 1:31 a.m.

Oh thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience with the recipe, Alma! Mushrooms are a lovely idea 😍

Susan APRN - Nov. 15, 2023, 3:04 a.m.

I just wanted to leave a comment about how much I enjoy watching you perform these recipes. You and your husband are so honest and adorable it is truly refreshing to see you guys work together. Sadia, you are a winner love watching you cook with such passion and colors. This recipe is one of my favorites and look forward to many more. I subscribed to your App and love it!!!! Keep up the great work, loving it! The grocery list part is so easy to use and quite ingenious since working with these ingredients are challenging.

PUL Team - Nov. 15, 2023, 7:19 a.m.

Oh, Susan, you're the best cheerleader - thank you! 🥹 Your support and kind words mean the world. We're excited to continue our continue journey together 😃

tuhuu - Nov. 6, 2023, 1:31 a.m.

Loved it very simple, filling and Delicious

Marie - Oct. 29, 2023, 9:32 p.m.

One of my all-time favorites!!

Toni - Oct. 25, 2023, 4:59 p.m.

I love this recipe! Tried it a while back and it has become a staple in our home ever since. I usually add zucchini to the mix. It's bright, satisfying, full of nutrients, and the whole family loves it :)

Rachel - Oct. 22, 2023, 4:18 a.m.

This sauce never fails!

Nikisha - Oct. 17, 2023, 2:58 p.m.

An amazing recipe! I'm not a fan of stir fry but I was intrigued by the stir fry sauce and what a hit it was with my husband. I was sceptical of the veggie to boodle ratio but it worked. I was surprised by the assembly of the ingredients prior to cooking, it didn't take long at all. The lime is definitely a game changer. I did substitute peanut butter with Tahini, sriracha with gochujang and I drizzled some chilli oil just before serving. A recipe I'm going to have on repeat.

PUL Team - Oct. 18, 2023, 12:02 a.m.

Awe we're so glad that the stir-fry and peanut lime sauce were enjoyed, Nikisha, thank you 😊

EarlGrey - Oct. 14, 2023, 11:09 a.m.

So delicious! Also works with spaghetti and fennel.

Rachel - Oct. 11, 2023, 2:43 a.m.

Absolutely delicious! I used ramen noodles.

Martunia - Oct. 3, 2023, 7:33 p.m.

I used green beans instead of bell peppers and it turned out great. The sauce is delicious!

Sam - Sept. 27, 2023, 12:59 a.m.

My dish turned out sticky, maybe I used the wrong noodles or something 🤔

PUL Team - Sept. 27, 2023, 3:14 a.m.

Hey, Sam! It's possible that the type of noodles you used contained a higher starch content, which can make the dish turn out sticky. We recommend dry soba noodles or brown rice noodles as listed in the recipe.

To help prevent the noodles from sticking together, you can rinse them under cold water after cooking to remove excess starch. You can also toss them with some oil to coat them and separate long strands. We hope this helps for now 🤗

Joanna - Sept. 16, 2023, 4:49 p.m.

I have made this many many times now and I still absolutely love it! A go to meal staple in our household :-)

PUL Team - Sept. 16, 2023, 6:45 p.m.

Yayy we’re so thrilled that the stir fry is being enjoyed, Joanna - thank you ✨🫶

JB - Sept. 14, 2023, 9:04 p.m.

I will definitely be making this again.

Nancy - Aug. 8, 2023, 6:37 p.m.

Oh boy. Better double the sauce. I fried up some tofu for a little protein and used zucchini from my garden. Hubby gave me an eleven on ten. Now I have a jar of sauce in the fridge for later this week. This is a versatile recipe which is great when veggies are not so abundant or affordable.

PUL Team - Aug. 8, 2023, 8:11 p.m.

So happy to hear it was enjoyed, Nancy, thank you! Zucchini from your garden sounds lovely 😃

Keren - Aug. 7, 2023, 5:38 p.m.

Hey! We are about to make it and we are excited. Is there any alternative for hoisin souse? We don’t have
Thanks in advance!

PUL Team - Aug. 7, 2023, 6:53 p.m.

Hey Keren, you could consider using either plum sauce or teriyaki sauce as both of these are sweet and tangy and can replicate some of the flavours in hoisin sauce. Otherwise, you can consider adding a bit of miso paste (not the same amount though, start with just under half, you can always increase to taste) or consider a splash more soy sauce.

Elena - July 31, 2023, 4:13 p.m.

Thank you so much for the recipe, I loved it.

Sarah - July 18, 2023, 3:36 a.m.

Yum! Super flavorful. Love the cook-along feature in the app and the thoughtful way you present nutrition info!

PUL Team - July 19, 2023, 11:27 p.m.

So happy to hear, Sarah, thank you ☺️

Darri - July 4, 2023, 10:32 a.m.

Really easy to prepare, healthy, and delicious. The red cabbage is not something I would have thought of but works really well. We sometimes add broccoli, julienne some courgette and a few sugar snap peas, and a bit less bell pepper than suggested. This has become one of our family's regular dishes, thank you Sadia + the team : ) Will be trying other dishes from the site for sure.

PUL Team - July 6, 2023, 2:18 a.m.

Oh you're the best, Darri, thank YOU!

Chitra - July 3, 2023, 8:34 p.m.

Tried this and came out awesome! Love the sauce. App is so cool from planning the meal, adding the groceries, accurate measurements for needed portions and all was so simple. Of course the recipe Yum!!!! Thank you!

PUL Team - July 4, 2023, 8:14 a.m.

Yayyy!! I'm so thrilled you're enjoying it, Chitra, it means so much 🥰

Diane T - July 3, 2023, 7:38 p.m.

I made this tonight. Very good. I used honey instead of agave and added sesame seeds to the cashews. It was a really tasty sauce. Thank you.

PUL Team - July 4, 2023, 8:09 a.m.

Thanks for sharing your experience with the stir-fry, Diane 😃

catarina - July 3, 2023, 3:12 p.m.

Fantastic sauce! Very easy recipe :)

Mikki M - July 3, 2023, midnight

I change the vegetables and type of noodles according to whatever i have on hand and the sauce is my favorite! Perfect weeknight dinner.

PUL Team - July 4, 2023, 1:48 a.m.

A lovely idea to modify it, Mikki!

Steve - July 2, 2023, 3:48 a.m.

This is a must try recipe. It’s our go-to dinner for non-vegan friends and always is a winner. Super quick and easy to make for company.

Lynn - July 2, 2023, 3:32 a.m.

We love this recipe. I has quickly found it’s way into regular circulation.

ekam - June 28, 2023, 4:33 a.m.

Omg the peanut sauce is to die for. I also added tofu with the veggies and it was delectable!

kirsten - June 27, 2023, 9:25 p.m.

We are flexitarian at home. But with meals like this I don’t miss any meat. The sauce is delicious! Combined with veg and soba absolutely heaven! I can eat like this any day of the week 😊.

Sarah - June 27, 2023, 6:05 a.m.

This is next level amazing. If you like a peanut sauce it an absolute must have. You can use whatever veggies you want the star is the sauce so it's super easy to make with whatever is in your fridge.

PUL Team - June 27, 2023, 7:21 a.m.

🙌 🙌 thanks so much, Sarah!

RS - June 7, 2023, 11:42 a.m.

I’ve been wanting to make a stir fry with a peanut sauce for ages. I used different veg to the recipe but the sauce was delicious. I also added some tofu that I had pan-fried. Looking forward to trying more of your fab recipes.

Also the app is fantastic- very well thought out and designed. It’s lovely to look at and easy to use. Well done!

PUL Team - June 8, 2023, 1:21 p.m.

That's the biggest compliment, RS, thanks so much! I'm so glad to hear you're enjoying the app 🥰

Penny - May 8, 2023, 4 a.m.

We are new to vegan eating, but have followed your channel for several years! We just made this and it was fabulous! What a great way to get introduced to a new way of eating! Thank you!

PUL Team - May 8, 2023, 9:02 p.m.

Awe thank you, Penny! Thank you for letting PUL be part of your vegan journey 🌱

Aleev - May 6, 2023, 10:56 p.m.

Definitely a recipe I’ll be making weekly. It’s incredibly easy to make and tastes unbelievably good. I add some broccoli and tofu to mine, which makes it even yummier

PUL Team - May 8, 2023, 12:55 a.m.

So happy to hear, Aleev - broccoli and tofu sound lovely 😃

Selina Isabel - April 27, 2023, 8:40 p.m.

Love it 🥰

Irta - April 26, 2023, 10:08 a.m.

How to store noodles so they wouldn't stick together?

PUL Team - April 29, 2023, 7:54 a.m.

Hey there, Irta, to prevent the noodles from sticking together, you can rinse them under cold water after cooking to remove excess starch. You can also toss them with some oil to coat them and separate long strands. We hope this helps for now 🙂

Kasia - April 25, 2023, 11:19 p.m.

Delicious 😋

Shayna - April 16, 2023, 2:24 a.m.

This is one of my favorites and I have made it a dozen times! It's so easy to make and delicious. We always make extra for leftovers.

Celine - April 5, 2023, 7:24 a.m.

I LOVE this recipe! I just made it for the first time tonight and it was a major hit. It would've made for some yummy leftovers tomorrow, except that, well, we loved it so much that it's all gone!! My partner isn't a fan of strong peanutty flavor, so I mixed 2 tblspns of peanut butter with 1 tblspn of tahini and it turned out great! Love your videos, too!

PUL Team - April 7, 2023, 6:56 p.m.

Awe we're so happy the recipe was enjoyed, Celine, thank you!

Rachael - Feb. 12, 2023, 9:43 a.m.

Been making this one for what seems like years, it is a household staple!

Annika - Feb. 12, 2023, 1:27 a.m.

Ugh this recipe is so delicious and beautiful from all the colorful vegetables. I just put on a podcast while I chopped the veggies and the rest came together super easy. Made delicious leftovers too. This will definelty be a new weekly favorite recipe for me (:

PUL Team - Feb. 12, 2023, 5:26 p.m.

Love eating the rainbow 🌈 and so glad the stir-fry was enjoyed, Annika!

Michelle - Feb. 11, 2023, 5:18 p.m.

I just made this recipe a couple of days ago and it's amazing! So yummy and filled with veggies, it took me a while to chop them all up, but it's so worth it!!

Lissy - Feb. 10, 2023, 7:29 a.m.

This one is so so good!! It became quickly my go to meal during stressful times in dental school. It's quick to make, you don't need many ingredients, and it's really really tasty. Highly recommend!!

PUL Team - Feb. 10, 2023, 6:32 p.m.

We appreciate the lovely review, Lissy, thank you! Wishing you all the best on your dental school journey ✨

Kirsten - Feb. 10, 2023, 3:47 a.m.

the vibrant colours and flavours in this dish make it one of my go-to summer recipes! i shared it with a friend who was new to cooking and felt intimidated by most recipes and she absolutely LOVED it - she felt so proud of herself for making something delicious!

PUL Team - Feb. 10, 2023, 5:32 p.m.

Oh so lovely to hear, Kirsten, we appreciate it so much! So kind of you to share the recipe too ☺️

Alexandria Mumma - Feb. 9, 2023, 6:53 p.m.

Sometimes I make this recipe 3 times a week. I crave this meal. It also heats up really well for lunches and make ahead meals! This is one meal that I think the toppings are not optional! The cilantro and cashews on top make this recipe perfect! It is so good.

PUL Team - Feb. 9, 2023, 10:55 p.m.

So thrilled it's being enjoyed, Alexandria, thank you 😃

Baran Basami - Jan. 18, 2023, 12:16 p.m.

Hey Sadia. This is certainly my favourite way to make noodles! Such a unique nutty flavour. Although next time I will add one more TBS of peanut butter to get more peanut flavour. Anyways thanks for this recipe, made it three times ;)

PUL Team - Jan. 19, 2023, 9:29 a.m.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it, Baran, thank you for taking the time to share! 😊

Ashby - Jan. 11, 2023, 7:05 p.m.

Really lovely recipe that I keep coming back to, especially the sauce. I made it with rice noodles.

DanielaC - Jan. 9, 2023, 10:15 p.m.

This looks delicious! I've become slightly allergic to peanuts (I'm told its a carb sensitivity and not a protein allergy, since it's not an anaphylactic reaction) with bloating and inflammation. COuld any of your peanut sauce recipes be used with almond butter instead? I saw one commenter said they used tahini. I'm curious.

PUL Team - Jan. 10, 2023, 6:43 a.m.

Hey DanielaC, yes you can use almond butter or tahini instead of peanut butter 🤗

Aurora - Jan. 3, 2023, 11:02 a.m.

Another winner! This was delicious! I replaced the sriracha with some kimchi and put the sauce in a blender, it was quite different from my usual stir-fry sauces which was a nice change. Thanks :)

PUL Team - Jan. 3, 2023, 2:24 p.m.

Oooh kimchi, such a great idea Aurora - thanks for sharing! So glad it was enjoyed :D

Ashby - Dec. 30, 2022, 10 p.m.

Really nice recipe. When I tasted the sauce on its own I thought it wasn't to my liking but then once its all mixed it it's perfect and incredibly moreish. Nice to have some veg in there too

PUL Team - Dec. 31, 2022, 3:44 a.m.

So happy to hear, Ashby, thank you 🙂

Sangeetha - Dec. 24, 2022, 3:33 a.m.

Can I skip hoisin sauce ? .. and can I use maple instead of agave ? Thank you ..

PUL Team - Dec. 28, 2022, 6:51 a.m.

Hey Sangeetha, you can omit the hoisin sauce and add more soy sauce to taste for balance if needed. Maple syrup works nicely as a substitute for agave. We hope you enjoy the recipe if you're able to give it a try 😃

Sam - Nov. 23, 2022, 8:53 p.m.

Just really easy and delicious

Lorena - Nov. 21, 2022, 2:10 p.m.

The sause is amazing and overall fast easy and so yummy! I can't stop eating!

PUL Team - Nov. 21, 2022, 7:49 p.m.

Thank you, Lorena :D

José - Nov. 18, 2022, 6:09 a.m.

I like that the vegetables are not cooked until they fall apart but keep a nice bite to them, somehow that perfectly mixes with the taste of this meal. Also I love how colourful this is all together 😍

PUL Team - Nov. 19, 2022, 7 p.m.

So glad it was enjoyed, José, thank you ✨

Christian Guerrero - Oct. 23, 2022, 4:34 a.m.

I want to make a big batch of the sauce to have it ready, does it really only last up to 3 days in the fridge?

PUL Team - Oct. 23, 2022, 7:54 p.m.

Hey Christian, you could store the sauce in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week if desired. We find after 3 days it tends to lose some of its freshness 🙂

Naga - Oct. 19, 2022, 8:02 p.m.

I love this recipe and made so many times. It is so tasty and easy to make. The best part of your recipes is that each serving is satisfying and keeps me full for long, a wholesome meal.

PUL Team - Oct. 19, 2022, 11:23 p.m.

Aw such a big compliment, Naga, it means so much!

Katie - Oct. 11, 2022, 2:58 a.m.

Made this two nights in a row because it was such a hit!
My non-plant based parents even ate it, and my dad who is a hard core carnivore enjoyed it, which is a major victory ;)
Highly recommend!

PUL Team - Oct. 11, 2022, 4:12 a.m.

A major victory indeed! Thank you, Katie 😃

Brigitte - Sept. 10, 2022, 8:18 p.m.

Amazing! I put less siracha than the recipe though because I just wanted a little bit of spice 😉

PUL Team - Sept. 11, 2022, 4:58 a.m.

A lovely modification, Brigitte, so glad it was enjoyed 🙂

Meredith - July 28, 2022, 6:35 p.m.

I happened to come across your website when hunting down an easy recipe for an Asian-based sauce with peanut butter for a stirfry. I have to say, the website is stunning! Aesthetically pleasing, major user-friendly, and PACKED with educational & nutritional data... Applause all around! I will certainly be back to scope out more fun recipes.

PUL Team - July 29, 2022, 5:38 a.m.

Sending our warmest welcome to the PUL community, Meredith! Thank you for the glowing feedback and happy cooking 🤗

Martina - July 20, 2022, 7:22 p.m.

Quick, easy and delicious! Peanuts in a dish can never be wrong

Savita - July 19, 2022, 11:36 p.m.

Sadia, this recipe was wonderful and super quick and easy to make. It was a hit in my household. I did do a different version of the peanut sauce, which I've included here in case you want to give it a go. This version of peanut sauce is great for dipping with those salad rolls too.

Peanut sauce: 5 Tbsp peanut butter, 2 Tbsp (22 mL) sodium-reduced soy sauce, 3 medium cloves garlic, 2 Tbsp Thai red curry paste, 1-2 tsp tamarind paste, 1-2 Tbsp (15 mL) sriracha hot sauce, 3 Tbsp vegetable oil, 1 Tbsp agave syrup or honey, a squeeze of lime (optional) 1/4 cup water (as needed to thin the sauce to your liking). Just pop all the ingredients in a blender.

PUL Team - July 20, 2022, 3:52 a.m.

Hey there, Savita, aw we're so glad the recipe was enjoyed and thanks for sharing your take on it! Hopefully we can give it a try soon 🤗

Taisija - July 16, 2022, 12:37 p.m.

Wonderful recipe!
Made this for a big crowd (btw, thank you so much for scaling option!!!) EVERYONE loved it! Even people who are not into plant based food said they ate vegetables with such pleasure for the first time in their life😅💖 Your blog is definitely making people healthier and happier!

PUL Team - July 16, 2022, 3:38 p.m.

Aw thank you for the glowing feedback, Taisija, it means so much!

Loucineh - July 3, 2022, 6:14 p.m.

Can the agave syrup be replaced by pure honey? Thanks <3

PUL Team - July 4, 2022, 6:47 p.m.

Hey Loucineh! Thanks for the question. Since we only use plant-based products here at PUL we haven't tested it out, but imagine it would work. We hope you enjoy the recipe if you're able to give it a try☺️

Loucineh - July 4, 2022, 6:53 p.m.

I have tried it today. Thank you very much for the recipe! It was very delicious <3

Olga - July 2, 2022, 5:01 p.m.

Excellent. Quick and easy to prepare. Was a hit with the kids too and that always elevates a dish ten-fold! xD Thank you!

Jigya - June 29, 2022, 3:49 a.m.

Tried this today- it was delicious and such a quick recipe. My husband loved it too- I just added a little more chilli sauce since we like spicy food.

PUL Team - July 1, 2022, 8:03 p.m.

So lovely to hear, Jigya, thanks a bunch 🤗

Taya - June 26, 2022, 10:28 p.m.

Loved it!

Christal - June 9, 2022, 7:09 p.m.

The entire meal is so filling and nurturing for your soul and for me, the peanut sauce makes all the difference. It’s measurements are perfect and the flavor can’t be beat. I use it as a dipping sauce as well.

PUL Team - June 10, 2022, 11:52 p.m.

Oh, Christal, it means so much! We appreciate it so much ☺️

Lucie R - June 6, 2022, 7:55 p.m.

This sauce tastes so good!

Kenzie - May 22, 2022, 11:43 p.m.

Made this for my a few friends for an end-of-semester dinner party. I was nervous because it was my first time making it, but it turned out so great and everyone went back for seconds!!
I’m a college student and have been vegan for almost 2 years now. PUL has made finding meals to enjoy so much easier :) Thanks guys!

PUL Team - May 24, 2022, 1:27 a.m.

Aw so happy to hear, Kenzie, and a huge congratulations on finishing up the semester! Thanks for allowing PUL to be part of your journey 💛

Riz - May 16, 2022, 1:29 p.m.

First meal recipe I tried from Pick Up Limes and it did not disappoint. Perfect balance for the sauce (my husband liked it too) :)

PUL Team - May 16, 2022, 6:51 p.m.

A massive compliment, Riz, and happy cooking!

Ashleigh - May 2, 2022, 7:23 a.m.

Love this. It’s my go to when I’m cooking for meal trains or other people. Easily one of my favourites and so easy to make.

PUL Team - May 2, 2022, 9:04 p.m.

We're so thrilled to hear, Ashleigh, thank you!

Kat - April 19, 2022, 10:55 p.m.

Is there a way to save my favorite recipes from the site, I have so many now I’m starting to forget them! Help please!!

Hey Kat, thanks for the question! At the moment, there isn't a way to save recipes but we're in the works of an exciting project which we hope will have the function to favourite recipes. Fingers crossed we can share it soon 🤗

Jen - March 19, 2022, 2:57 a.m.

I tried this recipe when you first featured it and have always loved it. Just thought I would share something as well :) Last week, I decided to make a batch of the cabbage and carrot on its own in the sauce for meal prep. I then paired it with brown rice/quinoa & tofu or tempeh on 3 different days throughout the work week; and i LOVED it. I never got bored of the flavor profile & crunch. I am trying the same approach this week, but swapping out different vegetables to have some variety. <3

PUL Team - March 19, 2022, 3:41 a.m.

Hey there, Jen, wow we love all the modifications for meal prepping! Thanks for sharing 😃

Vanessa - March 5, 2022, 12:51 p.m.

It’s tasteful and delicious! Principally the peanut sauce.

PUL Team - March 5, 2022, 7:19 p.m.

Awe thank you, Vanessa, we love the peanut sauce in this one 🙂

Edith D'Souza - March 5, 2022, 12:22 p.m.

Great recipe!

Ola - Feb. 15, 2022, 7:21 p.m.

I wanted to use red cabbage I had in a fridge but I had almost no ingredients for the sauce- I mixed honey, soy sauce, tahini and hot paprika powder and limes and it still was delicious! Can't wait for orginal recepie as I am sure it will be amazing :) thank you for boosting up my creativity! ;)

PUL Team - Feb. 16, 2022, 5:08 p.m.

How lovely to hear, Ola, and we hope you enjoy the recipe when you're able to give it a try 😃

Arjun - Feb. 13, 2022, 7:27 a.m.

Made this multiple times! Such a unique rich taste and flavour. The lime adds a really nice kick!

PUL Team - Feb. 14, 2022, 3:32 a.m.

Hi Arjun! So happy the stir-fry is being enjoyed :D

Alyssa - Feb. 10, 2022, 1:09 a.m.

This meal come together so easily on a weeknight. Even my husband, a dedicated omnivore, loved it. It was just spicy enough without overpowering the veggies.

PUL Team - Feb. 10, 2022, 5:42 a.m.

We appreciate the glowing feedback so much, Alyssa!

Melica - Feb. 4, 2022, 6:20 a.m.

absolutely loved it! thank you for all the delicious recipes you teach us 😋😋😋

PUL Team - Feb. 5, 2022, 6:13 a.m.

So happy to hear, Melica 🤗

Angela Donovan - Jan. 29, 2022, 5:05 a.m.

Love this sauce and recipe is very simple to make

PUL Team - Jan. 29, 2022, 7:49 p.m.

So happy to hear, Angela, thank you!

mary - Jan. 19, 2022, 4:44 a.m.

Love this wonderful recipe! Had all the ingredients on hand except the purple used the fresh coleslaw mix we had. Will make this recipe again and again. Thank you :-D

PUL Team - Jan. 19, 2022, 7:21 p.m.

Mmm a lovely substitution, Mary, we're so glad it was enjoyed!

Mansha suri - Jan. 9, 2022, 11:26 a.m.


Levke - Jan. 4, 2022, 9:14 a.m.

An all time favorite! I love noodles, love veggies and love, love, love peanut butter. Soooo delicious!!

PUL Team - Jan. 4, 2022, 5:04 p.m.

Woop woop! Thanks a bunch, Levke 🥰

Geraldine Mc teague - Jan. 3, 2022, 9:10 p.m.

Made this tonight! Delicious
Veganuary starting well! Thanks

PUL Team - Jan. 4, 2022, 4:52 p.m.

So happy to hear, Geraldine Mc teague, all the best with Veganuary 🤗

Kim - Dec. 13, 2021, 8:42 p.m.

Great recipe! We often make it when we have guests for dinner.

A question, can I substitute the agave syrup with a date? I have a friend coming over who eats paleo and she cannot have agave or maple syrup.

PUL Team - Dec. 14, 2021, 5:07 a.m.

Hi Kim, we're so honoured it's enjoyed with guests! You could omit the syrup from the sauce and see how you like it. If it needs a touch of sweetness for balance, then pure (100%) maple syrup, dates (date syrup might work a bit better) or an alternative sweetener should do the trick. We hope this helps for now 🙂

Kim - Dec. 14, 2021, 8:07 a.m.

Thank you!

Elizabeth - Dec. 5, 2021, 5:25 a.m.

Thanks for another great recipe! Simple, delicious, and loaded with vegetables!

PUL Team - Dec. 5, 2021, 5:44 p.m.

So glad the stir-fry is being enjoyed, Elizabeth 😊

Moon - Nov. 22, 2021, 10:03 a.m.

Stumbled across this on the channel and had everything in the fridge so decided to give it a go. Being gluten-free, I served it over brown rice instead of noodles and added some tamari pan fried firm tofu. This sauce is delicious and left me feeling very satisfied. I will definitely be adding this one to the rotation!

PUL Team - Nov. 22, 2021, 8:48 p.m.

We're so thrilled to hear this, Moon, thank you for taking the time to share! Happy cooking 😍

MT - Nov. 20, 2021, 12:48 a.m.


This recipe looks scrumptious. My stomach is growling and thinking of making this noodle dish soon. I currently don't have any Soba noodles. Do you think it is okay to use Star Anise brand brown rice noodles which is the only noodles I have for now?

Thank you for sharing the recipe.


PUL Team - Nov. 20, 2021, 5:40 a.m.

Hey there, MT! You can substitute the soba noodles for brown rice noodles if desired. We hope you enjoy the dish if you give it a try 🤗

Frederic Dupre - Nov. 14, 2021, 10:29 p.m.

i just love this recipe. taste good blitz of color!

Bojangles - Nov. 13, 2021, 8:33 p.m.

Thank you for sharing. I also added grated ginger with the garlic and replaced the peanut butter with tahini (also added a little black vinegar at the end. Truly scrumptious ; )

PUL Team - Nov. 14, 2021, 12:03 a.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Bojangles, so glad you enjoyed the recipe 🤗

Carolann - Nov. 7, 2021, 10:36 p.m.

My husband and I are starting out vegetarian trying to get advice from your site on making healthy choices for our family. This is an amazing easy dish for a wonderful family meal! Thank you for all your hard work with your you tube channel as well!

PUL Team - Nov. 8, 2021, 12:16 a.m.

Awe we're so thrilled to hear, Carolann, and all the best on your vegetarian journey 🤗

Becky - Nov. 3, 2021, 8:09 p.m.

Amazing dish. Very tasty 😋
Will definitely be making it again 😊

Sam - Oct. 1, 2021, 3:42 p.m.

Love, Love, Love this recipe! I've made it a few times now. The sauce is phenomenal and I find that it is delicious with any veggies you would normally add to a stir fry.

PUL Team - Oct. 1, 2021, 6:52 p.m.

We appreciate this so much, Sam, thank you for taking the time to share the lovely review ✨

Zoe - Sept. 20, 2021, 11:16 p.m.

I make this once a month. It’s easy. Last a while and I make extra peanut sauce for satay wraps during the week.

Gigi - Sept. 15, 2021, 8:22 p.m.

One of my favorite recipes. My husband even enjoys it and he swears that we need meat in everything haha

Teun - Sept. 15, 2021, 5:37 p.m.

One of my go to recipes! Very cheap one yet suuuper healthy and delicious, thank you :)

Marie - Sept. 6, 2021, 10 p.m.

Thank you so much for this wholesome recipe! 💕 I woke up craving this dish. It is one that I make often. I added a little zucchini I had on hand to the stirfry.

PUL Team - Sept. 8, 2021, 1:47 a.m.

Mmm love the addition of zucchini! Thank you, Marie 😊

Teresa - Sept. 6, 2021, 1:56 p.m.

Thank you for this recipe. We love the taste of it so much. It combines three of my husbands favourite ingredients: peanut butter, sesame oil and chilli ... so I was sure he would like it, when I made it the first time. And he did like it :-)! So much, that he thought about how to use the sauce with other ingredients. So yesterday we had it with bell peppers, carrots and bean sprouts on top of rice. While eating we realised that it reminds us of the Korean bibimbap ... which is one of my favourite dishes. So, thank you again!

PUL Team - Sept. 6, 2021, 6:19 p.m.

You're too kind, Teresa! Thank you for the glowing review. We're so happy the recipe was enjoyed ☺️

Kayla - Sept. 1, 2021, 5:59 a.m.

So flavorful and comforting, my family and i LOVE this dish!! It's perfect for using up any veggies you have on hand, you really can't go wrong with it. Definitely a go to recipe in our house!

PUL Team - Sept. 2, 2021, 1:05 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Kayla, thank you!

Selma - Aug. 29, 2021, 10:07 p.m.

Made it for the first time, just love it! Really easy and comforting. I'm excited to try some new variations! If someone has some tips for great combinations of veggies etc. i would love to hear it.

PUL Team - Aug. 31, 2021, 1:23 a.m.

So glad you hear, Selma! We'd love to hear other veggie combinations too 🤩

Eva Beeusaert - Aug. 17, 2021, 6:42 p.m.

Made the soba noodles & sause but with brocolli, eggplant, tofu and edamame - also amazing!!

Tom - Aug. 10, 2021, 6:24 a.m.

This recipe is one of our most favorite go-to meals. We make it all the time. It is super flavorful, satisfying and simple to make.
I suggested the recipe to a relative and they now make it often as well. I place this in my top ten favorite recipes!

PUL Team - Aug. 11, 2021, 1:41 a.m.

Aw you're too kind, Tom, thank you for taking the time to share the review! We're so honoured 😃

Shivangi - Aug. 1, 2021, 7:39 p.m.

Tried the recipe today and it was delicious. We added few more spices because Indians like more of them in their meals. Thanks a lot!

Monica - Aug. 1, 2021, 12:28 a.m.

This is delicious! The recipe is easy to follow and it came out great the first time.

Eli - July 28, 2021, 10:11 a.m.

This is a great recipe, I make it every other week or so! Super delicious, quick, and easy to customize!

Ira - July 27, 2021, 6:45 p.m.

Made this for dinner, so easy to whip up and that sauce makes it absolutely delicious! My granddad doesn't usually like noodle dishes but he loved this so much. Its a must try:))

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 1:54 a.m.

Aw we're so happy the stir-fry was enjoyed, Ira, thanks for sharing 🤗

Isobel - July 27, 2021, 4:42 p.m.

This is so quick and easy and delcious I love it! I even have got my dad involved making the sauce and he doesn't even like cooking :)

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 1:50 a.m.

Ooo super cool your dad was able to get involved! Thank you, Isobel ☺️

MICHELLE S - July 24, 2021, 10:03 p.m.

I have made this at least 6 times. It’s is so delicious and packed with healthy flavor.

Jess - July 24, 2021, 7 p.m.

Great recipe! This can be made with things I’m sure most people have in their pantry already, and you can use whatever veggies you have! This is our go to quick dinner! Flavorful, easy, healthful, and cost effective!

PUL Team - July 26, 2021, 7:20 p.m.

We're so happy you're enjoying the stir fry and sauce, Jess!

Cris S - July 22, 2021, 5:53 p.m.

I've made this for work lunch and it was great for 3-4 days, although it was best right after cooking! I added Shiitake mushrooms and fried tofu cubes. The sauce is deliciously creamy and well balanced!

PUL Team - July 23, 2021, 2:36 a.m.

Love these additions, Cris, thanks a bunch for sharing ✨

Beyza - July 17, 2021, 6:52 p.m.

my absolute go to recipe. It's quick, easy and versatile because you can just use what is in season or some frozen vegetables. The sauce was interesting. It is not like any sauce I have had in the past. It's acidic in a good way, creamy and thanks to the hoisin has a lot of depth in it. If the PUL Team sees this then please know that I would be delighted by more such sauces. I just love new flavours <3

PUL Team - July 18, 2021, 3:18 a.m.

So glad you enjoyed it, Beyza, the review means so much 😃

Ruth F - July 12, 2021, 3:47 p.m.

We love this recipe, we've made so many times. It's great warm for dinner and then cold the next day for lunch. I've made it with Dandan noodles and soba noodles and both are great

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 3:40 a.m.

Mmm sounds so yummy, Rut, thanks so much for sharing!

jonna - July 12, 2021, 3:19 a.m.

this is definitely a confort meal for me, i love it. i always add chickpeas as well, to get some protein, but it’s so good both ways.

Tabea - July 11, 2021, 1:57 p.m.

I love this recipe, it's really tasty and easy to make!

maria hussain - July 9, 2021, 3:43 p.m.

I love this recipe so much! It is easy for people like me who are not very good at cooking, and perfect for the summer weather as the lime sauce makes it quite refreshing. I really appreciate all of the suggested swaps-BTW for anyone who can't get soba noodles, I have tried this recipe with wholemeal spaghetti and it's just as good :)

PUL Team - July 14, 2021, 9:58 p.m.

Thanks a bunch for sharing this, Maria! A lovely substitute as well 😊

Charlotte - July 9, 2021, 12:48 p.m.

This recipe has a special place in my heart as it was my introduction to Pick Up Limes in 2019. My friend made it for me and told me about the PUL videos and ever since then I haven't looked back!
I make this recipe at least once a month and it is among my favourites for it's ease and simplicity and ultimately, it's taste! I love colourful meals and, to me, this meal is perfection.
Fun fact: I had disliked peanut butter my whole life until this recipe converted me!

PUL Team - July 14, 2021, 9:40 p.m.

We're so grateful you've been part of the PUL family since 2019, Charlotte, how incredible! Welcome to team peanut butter 😃🥜

Sara - July 9, 2021, 9:20 a.m.

This is so good! We have made it many times and it's really easy to make😊

Els - July 8, 2021, 10:56 p.m.

We've made this so many times. It's a great recipe for when we only have veggies left that don't seem to go together at first glance and it always tastes great.

Elizabeth - July 8, 2021, 10:41 p.m.

This is delicious. We've made it repeatedly.

Victoria - July 8, 2021, 9:39 p.m.

This was delicious! I think I ate this cold like a noodle salad.

Ana - July 8, 2021, 9 p.m.

This tastes incredible! I didn't have any hoisin sauce but it tasted awesome

Lana R - July 8, 2021, 7:43 p.m.

(TLDR; This is probably my favorite recipe I’ve tried so far!) As a meat eater, never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined following a vegan for recipes. Not only do I do that, the PUL team is the ONLY team I follow for recipes! Everything I’ve tried so far is so so good! I’d love to eat less meat, and I feel like I’ll get there sooner with this team. I went out and bought all of these sauces to make this dish. Worried a bit, because I NEVER use hoisin sauce, soy sauce, or sriracha in my home. (Video idea! Recipes for those random items in the home!) Tried this recipe and BAM! Instant love. I had to force myself to stop eating noodles it was SO GOOD!!! I can’t have noodles everyday of my life though, haha. What to do with all the extra sauces?

PUL Team - July 10, 2021, 8:06 p.m.

Aww this means so much, Lana! We're so grateful to have you in our PUL family 🥰 Two ideas may be to enjoy the peanut sauce in Salad Rolls (…) or tacos (…) 😃

Olivia H - July 8, 2021, 5:44 p.m.

If you're looking for a new fav recipe - THIS IS IT! My Boyfriend loved it so much, we're cooking it all the time haha!
Thank you Sadia (and Team!), for being the best vegan chef we know and love <3

PUL Team - July 9, 2021, 9:35 p.m.

Oh, Olivia, this means so much! Thank you for the wonderful review ✨🙂

Cris S - June 5, 2021, 4:16 p.m.

When making this recipe I quartered the peanut butter and doubled all the other sauce ingredients to make it match my taste and it was delicious! And I think I added crunchy fried tofu too!

PUL Team - June 5, 2021, 9:43 p.m.

Thank you for sharing this, Cris, a very lovely way to adjust to the recipe ✨🤩

Leah - May 23, 2021, 10:56 p.m.

This has been on regular rotation in our house since it came out. The sauce is perfection! I normally stretch it a bit with some broth which I add to the noodles at the end as needed. Love how many veggies are snuck in there and non-vegans can add chicken/shrimp as well. Thank you so much for this recipe.

PUL Team - May 24, 2021, 7:50 a.m.

We appreciate the review so much, Leah, thank you! So thrilled the recipe has been enjoyed recently 😀

Gabe - May 18, 2021, 3:41 a.m.

This one is comfort food to me <3 Creamy, sweet, tangy with a bit of heat. Peanuts, cashews, lime, tons of veggies, what's not to love ? A great way to enjoy yourself a the end of the day, it really is delicious and easy enough to make for weeknights ! 🥰 Thank you again Sadia for everything.

PUL Team - May 22, 2021, 4:46 a.m.

Thank you for the wonderful review, Gabe, and all of your support ✨🤗

Cristina - May 15, 2021, 2:55 p.m.

Absolutely love this! I was missing hoisin sauce so I used Tamarind sauce instead, as well as using Maple syrup instead of agave syrup. Still delicious. Thank you so much, I keep recommending your channel and webpage to everyone!

PUL Team - May 16, 2021, 12:09 a.m.

So glad you enjoyed the recipe, Cristina! We're so grateful for your support 😃

Hazel - May 12, 2021, 4:19 a.m.

Thank you so much for your amazing recipes!! I'm always blown away by how healthy yet wholesome and delicious they turn out to be!!
Quick question, I want to try this recipe but I'm not able to get my hands on the hoisin sauce and sriracha hot sauce needed for the peanut sauce. I think they are simply just not available where i live. Can i leave them out without it affecting the taste much?Or are there any other substitutes?

PUL Team - May 12, 2021, 6:02 a.m.

Aww you're too sweet, Hazel, thank you! That's a great question. The hoisin and sriracha help give the sauce a bit of a kick but aren't totally necessary. For the hoisin sauce, you could omit it and add more soy sauce. For the sriracha, you could omit it for a less spicy recipe, try another chili sauce accessible to you in its place, or experiment with some red pepper flakes or chopped chili if you're hoping for spice but can't find a sauce 😊 We hope you enjoy the recipe!

Hazel - May 14, 2021, 6:33 p.m.

UPDATE! I tried the recipe with the substitutions you recommended and it turned out great!! Now there's yet another excuse to add peanut butter to my everyday diet ;)) Anyone else who is reluctant,please go ahead and try this! Looking forward for more delicious recipes. Also, I hope you, Robin and the team is at home safe and sound. Thank you once again!!

PUL Team - May 15, 2021, 9:11 p.m.

Yay! We're so happy the substitutions were s success, Hazel 🤗 Thanks a bunch for the update and for your support. It means so much ✨

Kristýna - April 19, 2021, 4:32 p.m.

Thank you so much for this recipe Sadia - it is so delicious!🤤 We cooked it today with my boyfriend and enjoyed it a lot. Also it was the first time we used peanut butter this way, we always have it in our oatmeal, but we really loved it!!😍
And biiig thumbs up for your new website & recipe design - it is lovely!

PUL Team - April 20, 2021, 5:18 a.m.

We're so glad the recipe was a success, Kristýna! We love using peanut butter in sauces 😍

Christina - April 4, 2021, 5:35 a.m.

This is my new favorite go-to meal! I subbed sriracha in for sambal oelek which I had never tried before. So good! I also like your trick to shake the sauce in a mason jar to mix it.

PUL Team - April 4, 2021, 6:37 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Christina, and so happy you enjoyed it 🤗

lpb - March 24, 2021, 7:57 p.m.

We've made this so many times!! Love!!

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 4:28 a.m.

That's so wonderful to hear! Glad this one has been well-loved 🥰
