Recipe Summary

Dinner in 15 minutes? Yes, please! Toss noodles in a creamy peanut sauce that's bright and savory for a refreshing meal. Finishing a noodle bowl with fresh herbs is reminiscent of bún thịt nướng—a Vietnamese noodle bowl. Plus, it's a great way to use up leftover herbs. If peanut butter isn't your jam, simply swap in almond or sunflower seed butter, then top the noodles with salted, roasted almonds or sunflower seeds, respectively. Cashews work great too. If you have chili crisp on hand or a bottle of sriracha, don't be afraid to use it here.
