Amazing Soba Bowl
Serves: 4 servings
 
Another 30 minute meal coming at you. This one is super fresh and raw. Almost like a salad but better. The coconut peanut sauce will make you forget you're eating healthy.
Ingredients
  • Bowl
  • 6 oz. soba noodles (or whole wheat spaghetti noodles)
  • 1/2 bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced or shaved
  • 1/4 c. frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/4 c. frozen edamame, shelled and thawed
  • a sprig or two of kale, de-stemmed and chopped
  • Sauce
  • 1/2 c. light coconut milk
  • 1/4 c. natural peanut butter
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lime
  • squirt of agave nectar (optional)
  • Garnish
  • cilantro
  • green onion
  • chopped peanuts
  • sriracha
Instructions
  1. Make soba noodles according to the package instructions. Drain and run under cold water until chilled.
  2. Prep veggies. Run peas and edamame under warm water to thaw.
  3. Make sauce. Combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Stir until well combined.
  4. Make bowl. Layer with noodles and veggies. Top with sauce. Garnish as you wish and serve.
Notes
• If you wish to make this ahead of time, and store the sauce separately, add a bit of water to the sauce before serving. It will thicken as it sits in the fridge.

• If you wish to serve this warm, heat the sauce on the stove and add cooked and semi-drained noodles to the pot. Reserve some of the cooking water to help thin the sauce. The noodles will absorb the sauce more when warm. Steam veggies.

• You can easily save individual servings for lunch or/and dinner. Add the sauce to the bottom of your container. Then layer with the remaining ingredients. Add a bit of water before serving and stir to combine.
