Ingredients

  • 1 x 8oz 230 g package soba noodles, cooked as per package directions and 1/4 cup pasta water reserved
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2-1 garlic clove finely grated or chopped (start with 1/2 of a clove and then add more once you've tasted the sauce)
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 large head of broccoli chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper to season
  • Optional garnishes: crushed peanuts and chopped cilantro

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Cook soba noodles as per packages instructions, usually 8-10 minutes in boiling water. Immediately before draining set aside 1/4 cup of water.
  3. Meanwhile, toss broccoli with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Spread out on a baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.
  4. For the sauce place peanut butter, garlic, soy, lime juice, and reserved 1/4 cup of water (from noodles) in a blender or food processor and blend until well combined.
  5. Toss cooked noodles with peanut sauce until noodles are coated with sauce. Serves with roasted broccoli and optional garnishes if desired.

Recipe Notes

If replacing broccoli with green beans, simply add them to the soba noodles with 2-3 minutes left in the cooking process. Drain and toss with noodles and peanut sauce.
