More recently these noodles have come onto my food radar. Curious as I was, they ended up in my cart one day at the grocery store. Upon first making these, they can be quite intimidating. Dark and gooey, these black worms can look quite unappetizing, however they take on whatever sauce you make them in:) Ugly yes, user-friendly yes, tasty oh most definitely! So give these a shot in your next stir fry and tell me what you think 🙂 You’ll need the following:
-4 servings of Organic Wheat Soba Noodles
-6 c. Veggies of your choice (I chose Asparagus, Broccoli, Baby Corn and Water chestnuts)
-1c. Trader Joes Soyaki Sauce
-1 Tbsp. Peanut Butter
Start by boiling a pot full of water, I particularly like using my electric kettle. Place your Soba Noodles in a large bowl and pour boiling water over the top to completely cover them. Allow these to sit for 10-15 minutes:)
Now onto our Veggies, place those in your largest cast iron with some EVOO and get those sautéing!
Stir the veggies every once in a while to obtain browning on either side. While your waiting for those to cook, combine your Soyaki and Peanut Butter into a small sauce pan on Medium Heat. Bring the sauce to a boil and then remove it from heat. Make sure to stir often, the peanut butter may take a while to mix in 🙂
Once your veggies are browned to your liking add ½ c. sauce to them, stir in and sauté for another 5 minutes.
Drain your noodles and rinse them with water. Place drained noodles in a larger bowl and combine other half of sauce, stir until fully covered.
Add veggies in with the noodles and combine together 🙂 Serve and enjoy 🙂
