SOBA NOODLE & CUCUMBER SALAD RECIPE



SOBA NOODLE & CUCUMBER SALAD RECIPE

Soba noodles are Japanese noodles made from buckwheat flour. They are perfect for Asian noodle salads or in soups.

Try this substitution & rid your pantry of the starchy white noodles. 


INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup snow peas
1/2 hothouse cucumber
1/4 purple onion

3 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp natural peanut butter or almond butter
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp sesame seeds
sea salt



METHOD

In a pot of salted boiling water, add the soba noodles. Cook noodles until tender but still firm for 4-5 minutes. 

Drain with cold water, rinse twice to avoid noodles sticking together. Add to bowl. 

Boil snow peas & set aside. Finely chop onion & add raw or sauté for 1 minute. Slice cucumbers into rounds and strips. 

For the dressing, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar & natural peanut butter. Whisk until smooth.

Toss the noodles with snow peas, cucumber, onion & dressing. Garnish with sesame seeds & sea salt.
