Soba Noodles with Peanut Sauce

Soba Noodles with Peanut Sauce

I’m excited to share a recipe from my book, MeatLess: Transform the Way You Eat and Live—One Meal at a Time. This is a go-to recipe in my house for when I’m in a hurry to make dinner, but want a meal that will fill me up and also provide plenty of nutrients. Nutty peanut butter and salty soy sauce combine with a little sweetness plus hot sauce for an explosion of flavor. Packed with protein and ridiculously easy, this dish is a hit with kids for the taste and with parents for its ease. Adjust spice as your family likes it.

Soba Noodles with Peanut Sauce

Serves: 4
Time: 15 minutes

Sauce Ingredients:

1 cup crunchy peanut butter
4 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
2 teaspoons agave or other sweetener
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce like Sriracha, or more or less to taste
2 cloves garlic
1 to 1½ cups water
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

Vegetable & Noodle Ingredients:

4 carrots, chopped into coins
2 cups broccoli florets
2 cups frozen edamame
Crushed peanuts or sesame seeds to garnish, optional
1 16-ounce package of your favorite noodles, cooked according to package instructions (spaghetti, angel hair, soba, and udon all work well)

Method:

  1. Add all sauce ingredients to a blender, food processor or use an immersion blender to combine well. If you like a thick sauce, use less water. Set aside.
  2. Steam carrots, broccoli, and edamame for 4 minutes or until the broccoli is bright green.
  3. Toss the vegetables with the noodles and pour the peanut sauce over it. Serve sprinkled with crushed peanuts or sesame seeds.
