soba noodle salad peanut sauce



For the peanut sauce

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth – your preference)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp plum sauce or any sweet chili sauce
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp warm water

For the salad (serves 2-3)

  • Soba noodles
  • A handful of broccoli, cut into small bite size pieces
  • A handful of cauliflower, cut into small bite size pieces
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and cut into thin sticks
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, cut into thin sticks
  • Some scallions, (green part included) cut into 1 inch pieces
  • A handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled and cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 cup iceberg lettuce leaves, roughly chopped
  • Tofu -cut into bite size chunks
  • Salt



  1. Lightly sauté the tofu in oil and keep aside.
  2. Make the peanut sauce by adding all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well until they form a smooth sauce. Add more water (a little at a time) if the sauce feels too thick. Keep aside
  3. Boil your soba noodles as per the packet instructions.
  4. In a large bowl add the noodles, tofu and all of the other salad ingredients. Sprinkle in a little salt and toss it well.
  5. Add the peanut sauce and toss the salad really well – you want all of the vegetables and noodles to be evenly coated.
  6. Serve right away
