The Peanut Butter Broth Noodles That EVERYONE Needs To Try
Forget miso, because PEANUT BUTTER SOUP. Our resident cook Bella Koh (@catslavery) tells us how to whip up what we guarantee will be your next lazy day lunch.| January 5, 2018
You know what’s so very millennial? The whole concept of clean eating. You know what’s also very millennial? Ordering quinoa salads and green smoothies from an app. As hopeless millennials, we’re guilty of taking the easy (though admittedly convenient) route of ordering food via our phones rather than partake in the slow life and you know, actually see the kitchen as something more than a place to cook instant ramen.
Well, not anymore! To prove that good food that’s good for you can come from your own kitchen with hardly any effort on your end, we decided to ask Bella Koh of @catslavery, food stylist, super mama, major cat lover and purveyor of the slow life, to craft a series of gorgeous recipes out of what she affectionately calls “The Cat Kitchen”. This week, Bella dishes out possibly her coolest recipe to date – noodles with broth made out of peanut butter. YES, PB. It is hearty, wholesome, clean, sweet, savoury with a hint of tartness, and honestly, just darn mouthwatering by just the pictures alone.
