Ginger Peanut Soba Noodles

prep time: 10 minutes | cooking time: 10 minutes | makes 4 servings

One package soba noodles
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1 Tbsp water
1 tsp ginger, grated
1 small clove garlic, minced or pressed
sesame seeds, chopped peanuts, & chopped green onion for garnish

Prepare noodles as directed on package.

Drain noodles. In a small bowl combine soy sauce, sesame oil, peanut butter, water, grated ginger and garlic. Add to noodles and toss thoroughly to coat. If the sauce seems a little too thick, add some pasta water a tablespoon at a time until it looks like it will blend nicely with the noodles and not glop.

Top generously with chopped peanuts, scallions, and sesame seeds.

Eat hot or even chilled or room temperature. Serve with pak choi.
