Soba with Peanut Sauce

  • 8oz soba noodles
  • 1/4 C natural peanut butter
  • 1/3 C rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Chinese chili paste with garlic OR 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 C thinly sliced scallion greens
1. Cook noodles in a large saucepan of boiling water for 6-7 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold running water.
2. While the noodles cook, whisk together peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce, and chili paste or cayenne in a bowl.
3. Add noodles and scallion greens to peanut butter dressing. Toss well and serve.

Robyn's notes: I used the cayenne instead of chili paste.

Ingredient Info: Soba: the Japanese buckwheat and wheat-dried noodles contain twice the dietary fiber of plain noodles. In terms of essential amino acids, soba scores higher than pasta or bread. Soba includes a lot of lysine, and therefore a good balance of amino acids.
