25 Minute Spicy Thai Pumpkin Noodles (with chicken option) are quick and easy to whip up and smothered in the most tantalizing creamy spicy peanut pumpkin sauce that you will want devour year round!
Have you heard there is going to be a pumpkin shortage this Fall? Pumpkin crops are down by about half this year so while stores will probably have enough canned pumpkin through New Year, they probably won’t be restocking after that any time soon. Sad, sad day.
And especially sad if you don’t get your pumpkin fill ASAP! As in my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pound Cake, Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake, Pumpkin Nutella Crepes, Pumpkin Angel Food Cake French Toast, Pumpkin Coconut Chicken Fall Curry just to name a few… and now these 100% DELISH Spicy Thai Pumpkin Noodles. What to make first?!
These 25 Minute Spicy Thai Pumpkin Noodles are in essence your favorite peanut noodles with the added depth and creaminess from the pumpkin puree. So basically, they are better than your favorite peanut noodles! The flavor bursting velvety sauce of hearty pumpkin puree whisked with soy sauce, smooth peanut butter, lime juice, mirin, brown sugar, fresh basil and Sriracha is further enlivened by stir fried red curry, ginger and whatever crunch of vegetables you choose.
I added zucchini, carrots, red bell peppers and snow peas and threw in a few sweetly tart pomegranate seeds just for an extra oomph, but really, you can just add whatever you have in your fridge and it will taste AH-mazing because the sauce is AH-mazing. Stir fry pastas are all about the sauce. And if you are worried about this being too spicy, never fear, just add less Sriracha! You can always add more later, but you can’t take it back.
So between now and New Year and no-more-pumpkin puree – I hope you get your pumpkin fill and I hope it includes treating your taste buds to better-than-takeout 25 Minute Spicy Thai Pumpkin Noodles!
