Instructions


  1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook soba noodles according to package instructions. Careful not to overcook. Rinse under cold water and drain.
  2. Prepare the Spicy Peanut Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together peanut butter, Sambal Olek or Sriracha, rice vinegar, and tamari. While whisking, slowly drizzle in oil until all oil is incorporated. Stir in sesame seeds.
  3. Divide Spicy Peanut Dressing equally among 4 pint-sized mason jars.
  4. Divide soba noodles over the dressing. Layer carrots, red pepper, edamame, and green onion, ending with crispy chow mein noodles on top.
  5. Top with lids and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
  6. To serve, pour onto a plate or bowl, stir and enjoy.

Notes:

  • If noodles are too soft for your liking, layer them closer to the top next time!
