Peanut Soba Noodles

Noodle Bowl
120g buckwheat soba noodles (2 servings)
1 head of broccoli (about 2 cups, chopped)
120g edamame
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

1 tablespoons plain soy yogurt
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 tablespoon sweet chili garlic sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons rice vinegar

In a medium saucepan, boil enough water to cover the soba noodles. Add dry noodles to boiling water, and stir. Allow to cook for recommended time on package, probably about 3-5 minutes. Strain noodles and allow to cool (place in refrigerator, if you have the time).

In a separate pot, add a small amount of water to cover the bottom. Cover pot and heat until lightly simmering. Add chopped broccoli, and steam for 3-10 minutes, depending on how crunchy you like your vegetables. Once steamed, add to noodles in refrigerator.

Prepare edamame. If frozen, microwave for recommended time on package, or about 1-1/2 minutes. Add these to broccoli and noodles.

Prepare the sauce be combining yogurt, peanut butter, chili sauce, soy sauce, and rice vinegar in small bowl. Whisk together. Add some garlic powder and/or ginger powder, if you'd like.

Toss sauce with noodle bowl, and allow to cool. Serve chilled, with sesame seeds for garnish on top.
