Soba Noodles in Peanut Sauce
- 4 1/2 cups water
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon tamari
- 8 ounces soba noodles
- 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
- 2 scallions, thinly sliced
- 1 cup frozen edamame
- 1 baby bok choy, sliced (about 1 heaping cup)
- 1 teaspoon lime zest
- 1 - 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- Kosher salt
- 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro
- 1/3 cup crushed peanuts
- Pour the water into a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven with a diameter of at least the length of the noodles. Add the oil, tamari, and soba noodles. Place the garlic, peanut butter, scallions, edamame, and bok choy over and around the noodles.
- Bring water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 8 minutes total. About halfway through, use tongs to lift and gently swirl the noodles in the water several times to prevent them from sticking together and blend the peanut butter into the liquid.
- Remove from heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Add lime zest, lime juice, and a pinch of salt and toss with noodle mixture. Sprinkle with cilantro and peanuts and serve immediately.
