Soba Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Soba Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce

What am I going to make for dinner?  Do any of you find yourselves asking this very question multiple times a day/week/month?  I feel like I am always thinking about what I am going to make for dinner (it doesn’t help that I am always thinking about food, so what I am going to eat for dinner is just a normal flow as I the day progresses, haha).  Anyways, I really am always looking for healthy, simple delicious, and fast weeknight meals, and I know I am not the only one out there.

Soba Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce

 

Luckily, these Soba Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce fits the above criteria perfectly.  Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour which make them a high fiber healthy grain, the dish is loaded with veggies, a little bit of healthy fat from the natural peanut butter (plus delicious flavor), it taste fabulous, and it comes together in a flash.  It’s perfect for those busy weekday dinners.

I like to add a little bit of grilled chicken to these noodles, but it is completely optional.  I will also use whatever vegetables I have on hand; carrots and red peppers are just my favorites.
