Peanut Chili Soba Noodles

I make this recipe a lot, especially in summer. It is so nice to bring for a picnic and I have done this on many occassions. I have to admit though that it tastes a bit different every time, kind of because I just use what I have on hand. Its one of those recipes that you add the ingredients little by little and taste as you go along, but I have done my best to give the quantities I used. I think though that the fun of the recipe is kind of the experimentation part so use my quantities as a rough guide.

This time I made the peanut dressing with sriracha (Thai hot sauce), limes, tamari (kind of like soy sauce, but better!), sesame oil, ginger, garlic, red chili flakes. Other times, I have substituted the lime with some rice vinegar which is a nice variation. I had some avocado, a little cucumber and a carrot so I threw that in with a bunch of herbs and baked tofu – I like the Wild Wood brand. In the past, I have used steamed broccoli, asparagus, green onions, etc. I feel like many veggies go well in this recipe. I forgot to put peanuts on the dish I photographed, but definitely add that to your dish because it adds great texture. I remembered just as I was half way through and realized that I was missing my crunchy peanuts – don’t make my mistake!
