Soba Noodle Fun

I was feeling lazy last night so I decided to try something simple and tasty. This dish was just that and... with a little Morning Star "chicken" strips I added a little more protein and made this side dish into a main attraction. I absolutely love soba noodles for everything Asian inspired...especially soups (if you are looking for an amazing soba noodle soup in NYC try out Deli Marche, they have an awesome soba noodle bowl that is full of steamed veggies and tofu)

If you are feeling lazy tonight and have two hours to chill the noodles try this won't be disappointed.
Serves 4
1 package (8 oz) uncooked udon or soba (buckwheat) noodles
2 cups frozen organic cut green beans (from 16-oz bag), thawed
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar or cider vinegar
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons hot chili paste with garlic
1/3 cup water

  • Cook noodles as directed on package, adding green beans for the last 4 minutes of cook time. Rinse with cold water; drain.
  • In microwavable bowl, mix remaining ingredients; microwave uncovered on High 15 to 20 seconds or until softened. Beat sauce with wire whisk until smooth.
  • In large bowl, toss green beans and cooked noodles with sauce. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
