Healthy Soy Milk Tantan Noodles

Healthy Soy Milk Tantan Noodles

When I was cleaning out my pantry last week, I found a lot of nuts that were just about to expire. I thought it would be a shame to throw them away, but I couldn’t eat them all at once, so I decided to make my first peanut butter at home. And it was a huge success!

But now I had to find a way to use the peanut butter. I don’t like sweets, so I couldn’t eat it on bread, so I thought, “What kind of food has peanuts in it?


And peanut butter became the sauce for gai satay, which also appeared in the meat miso for this tantanmen. It has a sweetness that is not overpowering because it doesn’t have any sugar in it, and it adds a rich creaminess that is very tasty when dissolved in soy milk!

This recipe is very healthy, as it uses chicken meat and the only oil is chili oil, which you can add to taste. This recipe is very healthy because it uses chicken meat and the only oil is chili oil, which you can add as you like, but I think you will still be very satisfied with the richness of the meat miso and soy milk. This time I used Chinese noodles, but vermicelli would also be delicious!
