We packed as many crunchy veggies into this stir fry as we could. There are no wrong vegetables for this dish! If you've got mushrooms, green beans, radish, or cabbage - toss it in! This recipe is a great way to use up any veggies you've got in the fridge.

  1. Cook noodles in a large pot according to package instructions until al dente.
  2. Add the oil to a large pan on medium-high heat. When hot, add the shallots and garlic and cook for about 2 minutes, or until lightly golden. Add splashes of water to deglaze the pan as needed.
  3. Add the carrots, bell peppers, and cabbage to the pan, and cook for 2 minutes more, until bright and heated up, but still crunchy. Add more splashes of water as needed.
  4. Meanwhile, add all sauce ingredients to a mason jar, and mix or shake to combine into a creamy sauce.
  5. When the noodles are cooked, drain and add to the pan of vegetables and pour the sauce mixture on top. Toss to combine.
  6. Serve with the roasted cashews, fresh cilantro, and lime wedges. Enjoy!


  • Store the sauce and stir fry separately in airtight containers in the fridge for up to 3 days.

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?

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!

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!!😍

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.

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