In a hurry to make dinner, but want a meal that will fill you up and also provide plenty of nutrients? This week Kristie Middleton brings us this awesome and easy recipe for soba noodles with peanut sauce from her book, MeatLess: Transform the Way You Eat and Live—One Meal at a Time. 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.
Mmmm, Mushrooms – Mushrooms are an excellent way to add a boost of flavor and texture to your noodles! If you haven’t given oyster mushrooms a try, you definitely should. They’ve got a naturally buttery and meaty texture and are a staple in Asian cooking.
Gluten-Free Goodness – If you can’t do gluten, fret not! There are plenty of gluten-free noodle options available these days. Brown rice noodles have an excellent texture and flavor for this particular recipe. If zoodles or sweet potato noodles are more of your thing, then go wild! Both options are great with peanut sauce.
Storing Your Soba Noodles With Peanut Sauce
If you end up with leftovers, your noodles with peanut sauce will last about three days in the fridge when kept in an airtight container. If freezing, we would recommend separating the noodles from the veggies for easier re-heating. Since veggies cook quickly, it may taste best to make them when you’re ready to reheat your noodles!
