Straight from Salt & Lavender | Serves: 2-4 | Time: ~20 min
6.4 ounces #soba noodles (I used 6 oz.)
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped (I used a whole small pepper)
1 large carrot, grated (I just finely chopped
1/2 tablespoon (or to taste) chopped chives (I added more)
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped peanuts (I used less)
3 tablespoons #peanut butter
1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 tablespoon hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons #Asian chili paste like sriracha (I added more)
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 teaspoon soy sauce (I used coconut aminos)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
1 tablespoon water
Cook the soba noodles according to package directions. Rinse them under cold water, make sure they're well drained, then allow them to cool while you prep the other ingredients.
Prep the remaining ingredients and add them to a large bowl, and whisk the dressing
ingredients together in a small bowl.
Toss the noodles and other ingredients with the dressing until everything is coated (I found it easiest to do this with tongs).
Serve immediately or chill for later. Recipe keeps in the fridge for a few days.
