I'm a huge fan of cold peanut noodles, especially soba noodles. Soba noodles are Japanese buckwheat noodles, and are great for vegetarians. A 2-ounce (dry) serving of soba noodles has 8 grams of protein and 12% of the RDA of dietary fiber - and no cholesterol. Add different vegetables if you wish (shredded cabbage is good, or water chestnuts), and if you're not vegetarian, add soy-marinated chicken, shrimp or even salmon. Cook time is for boiling the noodles.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine sauce ingredients thoroughly.
  2. Toss cooked soba noodles (or spaghetti) with vegetables.
  3. Add sauce and combine to coat everything.
  4. (Since the flavors are so intense, I like my noodles a little on the"dry" side-- you can make this dish more"saucy" if you wish.) Add peanuts, adjust seasoning, and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

This is a great recipe! I'm always looking for quick, easy ways to use soba noodles. Good sauce to noodle ratio and nice flavor. The only change I made was to add some blanched broccoli. Perfect for a tasty on the go lunch or quick dinner!

i actually joined just so i could rate this! i love this recipe- although i did substitute rice vinegar for white vinegar (with no noticeable flavor change) and i used 1/2 ginger flavored honey aand 1/2 agave. i used celery, tomatoes, cucumber and pineapple in place of the vegetables you mentioned as well, but the sauce was marvelous! will be making this again soon ^_^

I'd give it 5, but my husband and 2 young boys don't like it that much. My husband says it's too peanut buttery and can't get through it. I've made this recipe quite a few times because I DO like it a lot and I keep scaling back on the p'nut butter hoping to get a better reaction from the hubby. Tonight I halved the p'nut butter amount and sub'd in a little tahini, but it was still a no. I do also love how all this can be done ahead of time. Thanks for sharing.
