Peanut Soba Noodles with Hijiki, Kale & Shiitakes
This recipe is a great break from plain pasta.
Cook Time: 20 min
How Do You Make It?
3 ounces dried soba noodles
6-8 shiitake mushrooms, fresh or dried
3-4 kale leaves
1/4 cup hijiki seaweed
1/3 cup boiling water
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 tsp. sriracha or gochujang
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce or shoyu
1. If you are using dried shiitake mushrooms, place them in a bowl, cover in boiling water, cover with a plate and leave to soak over night or until soft.
2. Place hijiki in a small bowl, cover in boiling water, and leave to soak at least 15 minutes.
3. Wash kale and remove tough stems. Cut or tear leaves into bite-sized pieces.
4. Remove shiitake mushrooms from soaking water. Squeeze out excess liquid. Trim any tough stems. Slice 1/8-1/4 inch thick.
5. Boil 5 cups water in at least a two quart pot. Scoop out 1/3 cup boiling water for making the peanut sauce. Add soba noodles to the pot. Stir, reduce heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes.
6. While noodles are cooking, place peanut butter, sriracha, garlic powder, lemon juice and soy sauce in a 1 cup measuring cup or bowl. Add the hot cooking water and stir well to combine.
7. Add shiitake mushrooms, kale and hijiki to the soba noodles and cook another 2-3 minutes until everything is just tender. Drain and return noodles to the cooking pot, immediately pouring on the peanut sauce. Mix to coat the noodles.
