A few tips:
- You can adapt the amount of gochujang paste according to how spicy you prefer your noodles.
- I used peanut butter when making these noodles, but you can use any nut or seed butter you have at home. It will affect the taste slightly, but not to any bigger extent.
- If you don’t like or have cashew nuts you can replace them with peanuts, almonds, sunflower seeds or sesame seeds.
- Serve these noodles as they are or top them with your favorite protein.
- I love making a big batch and make lunch boxes out of them. And to vary them slightly from day to day I eat them plain or/and add different types of protein in each box.
