Soba Noodle Salad with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces soba noodles
  • 1/2 cucumber, spiralized or cut into strips
  • 1 cup cabbage, shredded
  • 1 large carrot, sliced or shredded
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 3 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • Cilantro to top (optional)

Spicy Peanut Sauce

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp tamari (can sub soy sauce)
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar (can sub lime juice)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (can sub agave, honey)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 3 tsp sriracha

Instructions:

  • Cook the noodles according to package directions.
  • While the noodles cook, prepare the peanut sauce by mixing all the sauce ingredients together.
  • Once the noodles are cooked, rinse them under room temperature water to slightly cool them down slightly, then add them to a mixing bowl with the rest of the salad ingredients.
  • Toss the soba noodle salad and peanut sauce together until combined.
  • Optionally top with some extra sesame seeds, green onions and cilantro.

Notes:

Shred the vegetables into small pieces so they can easily be evenly distributed throughout the salad. You can also buy pre-shredded vegetables to save you some time.

Use toasted sesame seeds. (or if you have raw ones, toast them) Toasted sesame seeds have a much more rich flavour than raw ones.

If your peanut sauce is too thick, add a touch more water to thin it so it can be mixed in the salad more easily.
