Dan Dan Noodles
- 7 oz buckwheat soba noodles, or other high protein noodle – egg or bean curd noodles are great
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 4 teaspoons soy sauce
- 4 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- 3 teaspoons sriracha, (or more depending on your spice tolerance)
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Bring enough water to just cover the soba noodles to a boil. Once boiling, add the noodles and cook according to the package instructions – ours took 3 minutes. Once the noodles are done, drain off all but about 1 tablespoon of the cooking water.
Mix in the peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, and Sriracha. Thin out the sauce if needed with a little water. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and salt to taste.
