Cold Peanut Soba Noodles

Total Time

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.

  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.
