Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Canola oil
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1 bunch kale chopped and hearty stem removed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 oz soba noodles
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 cups edamame defrosted, if frozen
  • 1 green onion chopped
  • sesame seeds for garnish

Peanut Sauce

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp sambal
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 inch piece ginger peeled and grated
  • 1 garlic clove grated
  • 1 lime zest and juice
  • Few tablespoons water to thin out sauce, if needed

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook soba noodles for 4-5 minutes. When done, drain and toss with sesame oil to noodles don't stick.
  • If using frozen edamame, run under hot water for a few minutes to defrost and set aside.
  • In large skillet, heat canola oil and saute garlic for 1-2 minutes. Add chopped kale and cook until kale has wilted, tossing it around with the garlic oil. Season with salt and pepper and cook until just wilted, but not overcooked.
  • Using a food processor or blender, add peanut sauce ingredients and pulse until smooth. Add a few tablespoons of water to thin out, it needed.
  • In a large bowl, add the soba noodles, sauteed kale, edamame and toss with peanut sauce.
  • Garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds.

Notes

  • To make the dish vegan, omit the honey and a teaspoon of sugar.
  • If you don't have sambal, sriracha is a good substitute.
  • Soba noodle salad can be served chilled or at room temperature.
  • Lasts up to 3 days in the fridge and is great for lunches.
