  • 2 (8 ounce) packages soba noodles

  • 1 ½ tablespoons canola oil

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger root

  • 1 cup shredded carrots

  • 1 red bell pepper, diced

  • 4 scallions, diced, divided

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 2 teaspoons sriracha hot sauce

  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar, or to taste

  • 1 cucumber, sliced

  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

  • 1 lime, cut into wedges


  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Ease soba noodles into water and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until noodles are tender yet firm to the bite, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.

  2. Heat canola oil in a saucepan over medium heat; add onion, garlic, and ginger. Cook and stir until onions are translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add carrots, red bell pepper, and half the scallions to the pan; cook and stir to desired tenderness, 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. Mix soy sauce, peanut butter, sesame oil, hot sauce, and brown sugar in a large bowl until peanut butter is incorporated. Add cooked soba noodles, cooked vegetables, and cucumber to the bowl; toss until fully combined with sauce. Add rice vinegar and toasted sesame seeds to the bowl, toss again. Chill for 30 minutes or more; garnish with remaining scallions and serve with lime wedges.

Cook's Note:

If you use a microwave-safe bowl when making the sauce, before whisking, heat the mixture in a microwave on low setting for 25 seconds to soften the peanut butter.
