Spicy Peanut Soba Noodles


I was so inspired reading through the recipes of Healthy, Happy, Vegan Kitchen by Kathy Patalsky. I hadn't really tried my hand at vegan cooking until checking out this book at the library. It is an awesome book for those who are new to eating a plant based diet and has a ton of easy vegan recipes without a whole lot of bizarre/foreign ingredients.

I saw this Spicy Thai recipe and even though I didn't have all the ingredients that it called for, I decided to go for it anyways, and sub out what I didn't have with things I did and it turned out awesome! You can make these more spicy, or less depending on your preference and depending on the weather/mood you can serve these noodles cold or hot. I went with hot because I prefer hot dishes and it seemed more "dinner appropriate."

So here's the recipe I adapted from Kathy's book; Healthy, Happy Vegan Kitchen.

Spicy Peanut Soba Noodles

Ingredients

3 cups uncooked soba noodles

Spicy Peanut Sauce

3 to 4 TBS peanut butter, softened

2 TBS pure maple syrup

2 TBS rice vinegar

1 TBS chopped cilantro

1 TBS chopped Thai basil

1 clove garlic

1 tsp sesame oil

1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger

few pinches of cayenne pepper

1/2 cup plain unsweetened almond milk or water

Toppings

1 cup thinly sliced carrots

2 tsp sesame seeds (optional)

2 TBS peanuts (optional)

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Spicy Thai Sriracha sauce

Procedure

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the noodles and cool until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Cover the noodles to keep them warm

For the peanut sauce: In a food processor or blender, combine the peanut sauce ingredients leaving out the almond milk until you have blended all the other ingredients. Once blended, add almond milk one spoonful at a time until it reaches desired thickness. Process until smooth. If you need to adjust thickness you can add more peanut butter.

Pour the sauce into saucepan and simmer for 2-3 minutes until just warm. For extra kick add some spicy Thai sriracha.

Enjoy!
