Add peanut butter to your standard cup of ramen noodles. Drizzle on some Sriracha. Ask yourself why you haven't been doing this for years.
This is the right way to eat ramen. Classically, ramen is a noodle soup made with wheat noodles. But when you add a dollop of peanut butter to your ramen, the broth thickens and the dish mimics the exquisitely yummy flavors of Pad Thai, a popular Thai dish. Coated in a creamy and nutty sauce, silky noodles get the perfect spicy kick with a dash of Sriracha.
New life motto: Peanut butter makes everything better.
Even more, adding a spoonful of PB provides you with a boost of protein and healthy fats, which make the carb-heavy dish a bit more satiating.
