Creamy Peanut Soba Recipe

Serve immediately after tossing the soba in the peanut sauce, as the noodles tend to get drier and stickier once mixed.

Top it with vegetables (such as broccoli, lettuce, cucumber, carrot or kale) for a one-dish meatless soba meal; or with a simple side-dish (such as chicken or salmon).
