Spicy Peanut Soba Noodles with Veggies
Health Highlights


1 cup sliced Carrots (thinly sliced, for topping)
1 dash Cayenne pepper (to taste, for peanut sauce)
1/4 cup Cilantro (coriander) (finely chopped, for topping)
1/4 tbsp Cilantro (coriander) (chopped, for peanut sauce)
1 clove(s) Garlic (for peanut sauce)
1/2 tsp minced Ginger root (for peanut sauce)
3 cup Japanese noodles, soba, dry
2 tbsp Maple syrup (for peanut sauce)
3 1/2 tbsp Peanut butter, natural (softened, for peanut sauce)
1 tsp Peanuts (crushed, for topping)
2 tbsp Rice vinegar (seasoned, for peanut sauce)
1 tsp Sesame oil (for peanut sauce)
2 tsp Sesame seeds (for topping)
1 tbsp Soy sauce, tamari (for peanut sauce)
1/4 cup Water (as needed, or lactose-free milk, for peanut sauce)


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse the noodles under cold water. For chilled noodles, transfer the noodles to a bowl and refrigerate until ready to use. Otherwise, cover the noodles to keep warm.

For the Sweet and Spicy Peanut Sauce: In a food processor or blender, combine the peanut sauce ingredients, adding the non-dairy milk or water last, a spoonful at a time until you reach a desired thickness. Process until smooth. If the noodles are cold and dry, a wetter sauce may be best, but if the noodles were just cooked and are still steamy and slightly wet, a thinner sauce may be better. You can also adjust the thickness by adding a spoonful more or less of the nut butter.

For warm noodles and sauce, pour the sauce in a small saucepan and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes just to warm. Otherwise, pour the sauce directly over the chilled noodles and place back in the fridge until ready to serve.

To serve, toss the dressed noodles with the carrots and seeds (if using) over the top. Sprinkle with the cilantro and peanuts, and enjoy!
