"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."

"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."
"Excellent simple noodle dish, I made it up to take to work for lunch and it was great!"
"My family loves this recipe and I now make it regularly. It tastes best at room temp but stores well in the fridge and eaten cold is delicious too! A nice change for a side dish. I usually serve it along side an Asian Chicken or Beef entree."
"I thought this recipe was just okay, not nearly as good as the thai peanut noodles I usually make. It may be that I just don't like soba noodles, but I thought something tasted a bit off. Maybe some more peanut butter in the sauce, or a bit of salt for some more kick to it. Thanks for sharing."
"I was really looking forward to this because I like peanuts. I could not find soba noodles and that might have been the problem, but after trying them I'm not sure I care to go out of my way looking for the proper noodles. The cold noodles did not help at all and I felt the sauce had such a strange flavor. I was unable to finish my portion before my taste buds revolted again me. If you are going to try this recipe, please make sure to find the proper noodles at least before you do!"
"I tried several differed cold sesame noodle recipes searching for the best and I believe I found it with this one. I have made it several times and is perfect with Olympic Seoul Chicken one of my top 10 and most requested meals"
"Great recipe! I used udon and added some extra veggies and cilantro. Loved it!"
"This was pretty good. 4oz of noodles isn't nearly enough for the amount of sauce it makes, I ended up making another 4oz for a total of 8oz. Also I thought it needed added salt and a little bit of lime to give it some sort of kick. Otherwise, it was just a little to bland for my tastes."
"The sauce was quite flavorful but a little heavy. I didn't think such a little amount of sauce would be able to cover all the soba. But it was still excellent nonetheless!"
"I have been searching for a good, basic peanut noodle recipe and this is definately it! I've been using Barilla's whole grain spaghetti to boost nutrition. I don't like peppers that much, so instead I've been shredding napa cabbage and adding it to the pasta for the last two minutes to soften a little. I like to add the carrots raw, to add crunch, and if I have them, I also add scallions. Delicious!"
"I really liked this. I would make this 4 stars if my husband didn't tell me to never make this again. He hated it. He hated the texture etc. I thought it was much better when I first made it and it was a little warm than after it sat in the fridge. I didn't use the peppers or carrots. I added cole slaw mix and a can each of baby corn, water chest nuts and bamboo shoots. I think if I make this again (for myself not DH) I won't add the nuts. Oh, and I couldn't find the noodles so I used spaghetti. Thanks for posting, even tho it wasn't a hit with everyone."
"If I may quote my lips when I was eating this - "Slurp smack gobble mmmmmm..." SO good!!!!"
"I was really impressed with this recipe. To make it vegan, I substituted maple syrup for honey and it worked really well. I think cabbage would be a good ingredient to add. Thanks!"
"Great Recipe! I did tweak it a bit also decreasing the amount of peanut butter to 1 tablespoon and increasing the rice vinegar to 2 Tablespoons. I also added a few dashes of Tabasco. I used it as a bed for some grilled salmon and roasted asparagus. I will definitely make this recipe again!"
"EXCELLENT. I left out the red pepper flakes so my daughter could eat it and even my husband, who likes spicy foods, really enjoyed the recipe. Excellent, really, I can't say it enough."
