Dinner in 5 Minutes? Without using a knife? Yes, it can be done! Try this quick, healthy, and ridiculously satisfying vegan recipe bowl any night you don’t feel like waiting for take-out. The trick? Quick-cooking buckwheat Soba noodles and an Asian peanut sauce you make with some pantry ingredients.
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
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.
