Super Easy Method. I recently found some awesome noodle packs by Annie Chun brand. The noodles come in pre-cooked packs – I found them by the tofu in my grocer’s fridge section. These made my dinner prep time so fast I couldn’t believe it. Literally a ten minute meal is you can find the easy packs. Or you can stick to the traditional route and prepare dried soba noodles – as described on the package.
Easy Peanut Lime Soba Noodles Meal
vegan, serves 4
4 cups cooked soba noodles
3 cups broccoli florets (frozen or fresh)
1 Tbsp safflower oil
fine black pepper
Easy Peanut Coconut Sauce
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 tsp ginger powder
2 limes, squeezed (about 4 Tbsp juice)
pepper to taste
2-3 Tbsp cashews
Sweet Peppered Ginger Tofu
salt/pepper tofu + 1 tsp maple or agave syrup + 1/2 tsp ginger powder
garnish: fresh lime slices and optional cilantro
1. First, prepare your soba noodles as described on the package – or use pre-cooked boodles.
2. Stir together your peanut sauce by mixing roughly with a fork until the peanut butter blends into the liquid. Set aside.
3. In a saute pan, prepare the salt and pepper tofu. Directions in my Salt/Pepper Tofu Recipe Post. I also added in a nice sprinkle of ginger powder and extra drizzle of agave syrup. Set tofu aside.
4. No need to clean the pan. Simply, add in the 1 Tbsp safflower oil and the broccoli. Saute for a few minutes until broccoli browns a bit. Add in the cashews to brown a bit as well.
5. Then add in the soba noodles and sauce. Saute until the noodles absorb the sauce and the mixture thickens up.
6. Serve warm – garnish with fresh lime slices and optional cilantro.
