  • Yield: 2 servings 1x




  • 2 servings whole wheat soba noodles
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil, plus a splash
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Chinese rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoon coconut sugar, maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Half a cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut into 1/8-inch by 1/8-inch by 2-inch sticks
  • ¼ cup chopped roasted peanuts
  • 1 scallions, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsps cilantro, chopped
  • Garnish: limes




  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add noodles and cook until barely tender, about 5 minutes. They should retain a hint of chewiness. Drain, rinse with cold water, drain again and toss with a splash of sesame oil.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the 2 tablespoons sesame oil, the soy sauce, rice vinegar, peanut butter, sugar, ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes.
  3. Pour the sauce over the noodles and toss. Transfer to a serving bowl, and garnish with cucumber, chopped peanuts, scallions and cilantro.
