Garlic Peanut Soba Noodles

Garlic Peanut Soba Noodles

If you’ve ever been to the Yard House and had their garlic noodles, you know that they are amazing but also probably filled with 1/2 lb of butter and enough sodium to last you a week.  These garlic noodles were inspired by them but they have a slightly different flavor profile.  It was 90 degrees out a  few nights ago so I decided something cold for dinner would be best so I whipped up some soba noodles, sautéed vegetables and peanut sauce and then cooled it in the fridge briefly before serving.

The great thing about this is that you can use whatever you have on hand and the whole meal comes together in about 20-30 minutes.  I had some leftover cole slaw mix so I sautéed up some onions, cabbage and carrots, tossed with the noodles and then topped with a peanut sauce.

You could serve these warm as well but they were EXTRA good cold as leftovers.

IF you have any on hand, some sliced scallions would be great in this recipe, I just didn’t have any so I did without.

You can also add more sriracha if you like things a little spicier.

Happy FRIDAY!!  Hope you all have another fantastic weekend!

 

WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY:

Summer thunderstorms.

Storm

There is something kind of exciting about a summer thunderstorm.  From our house we can see the clouds forming and the storms moving across the water, its fun to see them approach and then hearing the thunder and watching the lightening.  We got hit with a doozy on Monday.  It passed in about 5 minutes but it hit us hard!
