MORE ABOUT THIS PEANUT SOBA NOODLE BOWLS RECIPE…
Peanut sauce all over everything! As of there is any other way?! I mean, delicious, gluten free peanut sauce all over soba noodles and green veggies.
Have you had a soba noodle before? They traditionally are made out of buckwheat flour and have a really unique texture and flavour. They are a little chewy and slightly sweet and so so so delicious when drenched with peanutty veggies.
Side Note: You can get soba noodles at most grocery or health food stores. Look for soba noodles that are gluten free and made of mostly buckwheat flour, if not 100% buckwheat flour. You cook them just like any pasta and then flavour them with any sauce. If you can’t find them use and rice noodle or long pasta instead.
So once your noodles are cooked, you then drench them with fresh veggies and peanut sauce.
I steamed some broccoli, kale and thick sliced carrots together. There’s just something about some dark leafy greens and sweet and tangy peanut sauce on top of noodles.
And that sauce though! We are using natural smooth peanut butter (I use homemade peanut butter) mixed with tamari (or gluten free soy sauce) and sesame oil, honey (or maple syrup if vegan), garlic and hot sauce. It’s very much like the best ever Thai peanut dipping sauce but in noodle bowl form.
All made and ready to eat in about 30 minutes, which means less time cooking and more time GG-watching.
For your Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life viewing party fun be sure to check these out!
