1 9.5 oz package organic soba noodles
2 tbls toasted sesame oil
3 tbls coconut aminos (or soy sauce)
2 tbls rice vinegar
2 tbls tahini
1 tbls peanut, almond or cashew butter
1 tbls maple syrup
1 tbls grated ginger
2 cloves garlic minced
2 tsp dried chili flakes
1 cup chopped raw broccoli
1 med carrot cut into matchsticks
1 small cucumber chopped into matchsticks
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add noodles and cook until barely tender, about 4 minutes(no salt). They should retain a hint of chewiness. Drain, rinse with cold water, and toss with a splash of sesame oil.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together sesame oil, coconut aminos, rice vinegar, tahini, peanut butter, maple syrup, ginger, garlic and chili flakes.
- Pour the sauce over the noodles and the broccoli and toss. Serve into dishes and some of the rest of the ingredients to each bowl. Squeeze lime over and ENJOY!
