Easy peanut soba noodles

A simple yet flavourful noodle dish.

Soba noodles are 100% buckwheat noodles that are naturally gluten-free and rich in fibre. They have a mild flavour and firm texture, making them the perfect base for this easy, flavourful dish. This meal is perfect for a busy weeknight and also works really well packed in lunch boxes.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Serves: 4


  • 8 ounces (226g) soba noodles
  • 1 cup shelled edamame
  • 1 red pepper, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1⁄4 cup all-natural peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • toasted sesame seeds, for topping
  • crushed red pepper flakes, for topping (optional)



  1. Cook the noodles according to the package instructions. Drain, rinse under cold water, and place in a large bowl topped with the edamame, red pepper, scallions, and cilantro.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, lime juice, rice vinegar, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, ginger, and garlic.

  3. Pour the peanut sauce over the noodles and toss until everything is lightly coated.

The ciambella is a typical citrus-based breakfast cake served in the morning in bars across the country. It’s pleasantly simple, both in flavor and in effort. Because I couldn’t resist adding some American touches here, blueberries and a wildflower honey glaze bring a little extra sweet zing, making this a breakfast that straddles the best of both worlds.
