Our soba noodle salad is the perfect noodle recipe when you’re looking for a quick and nutritious lunch or dinner. Soba is a Japanese buckwheat noodle that has a well-earned reputation for its health benefits: rich in magnesium, protein, and vitamin B1 (thiamine). It’s popularity comes from its ease to cook quickly and with so much versatility—soba can be served hot, cold, or at room temperature—the possibilities are endless. If you are gluten-free and buy 100% buckwheat noodles it’s an easy staple to add to a wheat-free pantry. We’ve combined these noodles with our Almond Peanut Sauce Recipe for a healthy side dish or standalone meal ready in less than ten minutes.

Try this delicious soba noodle salad to add a little Asian flair at mealtimes. (tweet this)

Instructions
  1. In a large pot, cook the soba noodles according to package directions. Rinse under cold water and drain. Set aside.
  2. Prepare almond peanut dressing by combining all ingredients together in a blender, except the water. Blend all ingredients on high while slowly adding small amounts of water until desired consistency has been reached. Set aside. For a nuttier and thicker consistency add more nut butter.
  3. Peel and grate the carrot and the cucumber. For thicker slices you can peel into strips instead of grating.
  4. In a large bowl, add the soba noodles, the carrot, and the cucumber. Now add the almond peanut dressing, mixing well until everything is coated. If noodles become too sticky simply add 2 tablespoons of tamari.
  5. Garish with the chopped fresh cilantro. The salad can be served warm, cold, or at room temperature.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
