Garnish generously with:

  • toasted sesame seeds
  • more dried red pepper flakes
  • optional: roasted peanuts

Cook soba noodles according to directions (8-10 min). Drain and set aside.

Prepare sauce by blending ingredients together (I used a blender.)

Stir sauce into noodles and refrigerate while preparing veggies.

Stir veggies into noodles, garnish generously with toasted sesame seeds, red pepper flakes to taste, and peanuts if desired.
