Here’s the full recipe for Chef Guntas’ Peanut Butter Ramen:
Olive oil – 1 tablespoon
Garlic (minced) – 3 cloves
Ginger (chopped) – 1 tablespoon
Mushrooms (sliced) – 1 cup
bok choy – 1
Crumbled extra firm tofu – 1 cup
Peanut butter – 2 tablespoons
Vegetable broth – 1.5 cups
Udon/ramen noodles – 1 serving
For the sauce:
Light soy sauce – 2 tablespoons
Jaggery – 1 tablespoon
Rice wine vinegar – 1 tablespoon
Sesame oil – 1 tablespoon
For garnish, the chef suggested using toasted white sesame seeds, chopped bird’s eye chili, chopped fresh green onions, chili oil, and crushed roasted peanuts.
Heat some olive oil in a pan and add the minced garlic, ginger and mushrooms. Sauté for 3-4 minutes.
Next, add fresh green bok choy leaves followed by crumbled tofu. Mix well for about five minutes.
Add the peanut butter and a little vegetable broth. Mix everything well. Stir and deglaze the pan. Add a little water.
When the broth boils, add the sauce mixture over medium heat. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes.

Garnish the recipe with crushed roasted peanuts, chopped green onion, chili oil, roasted white sesame seeds, and chopped bird’s eye chili.
The chef shared some other top tips:
In addition to the ingredients mentioned in the video, the chef said you can also use vegetables of your choice in the recipe to add more color and crunch to the dish.
You can also use commercially available instant bouillon cubes if you don’t have pre-made or frozen bouillon.
Peanut butter can be replaced with tahini for a nutty, creamy flavor to add a twist to your dish.
Chili chips can also be used in place of the chili oil if you have easy access to them.
