Soba Noodle Slaw with Peanut-Sesame sauce

This weekend was filled with a lot of bad eating. As a result, we were on the search for something veggie packed yet flavorful. This recipe via Cookie and Kate was just what we needed. I took a few short cuts with the recipe which made it super easy and quick to whip up. Whether you stick to the original or make it your own, you won't be sorry.

Slaw Ingredients:

  • 4 oz. soba noodles (I found them at Whole foods)
  • 1 small purple or green cabbage (I got a pre-shredded bag from Trader Joe's)
  • 4 carrots, peeled (again, I got a pre-shredded bag from TJ's)
  • 1 bunch green onions, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1 chicken breast, cooked however you like & chopped up
  • * Optional: Cilantro, chopped peanuts, lime wedges for garnish
Peanut-Sesame Sauce Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. agave nectar or honey
  • 1 tbsp. fresh ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Cook noodles according to package directions. Run under cold water after.
  • Prepare vegetables if you didn't buy them pre-shredded, a food processor will help you out here.
  • For the sauce, toss everything in a Nutribullet or mince garlic and ginger and whisk with the rest.
  • In a large bowl, combine noodles and veggies with the sauce. Cover and let sit in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
  • Add chicken and garnish right before serving.
***** Serves 6-8
