Quick Asian Peanut Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons Peanut Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Rice Vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Ginger, grated or minced
  • 1 tablespoon Orange Juice (or pineapple juice)
  • 1/8 teaspoon Red chili flake
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tamari or Soy Sauce

For Noodle Bowl:

  • 1 (2 oz) bundle Soba noodles
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • 1/4 cup shelled edamame

How it’s Done

To make the Noodle Bowl:  Get a pot of water boiling.  This might add a few extra minutes, but still pretty fast.
Add the Soba noodles to boiling water.
In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter, rice vinegar, lime, red chili, tamari, and orange juice.
After the noodles cook for about 2 minutes, add the bean sprouts and edamame.  Cook 1 more minute, until hot.
Drain noodle mixture.  Toss with the Peanut Dressing and serve.
Dinner is done.

Yield: 1 big bowl


Chef’s Tips

Extra Dressing:  You’ll have extra dressing from this recipe.  It is good for up to 10 days.  Use it on salads, grilled veggies, or for other dinner emergencies.

Chef’s Ingredient Tip: Double-check the Peanut Butter label. Look for a brand that has no extra oils, sugars, or syrups listed. These are often called peanut butter “spread”

Chef’s Bottom-of-the Jar Trick:  Use an empty (or near-empty “bottom of the jar”) peanut butter jar to make a big batch of the Peanut Sauce.  You can whip up this bowl in minutes, or use it as a dressing for salad, a dip for veggies, or even poured over roasted sweet potatoes.
