Servings: 2
Cooking Time: approx. 40 minutes


Juice of 2 fresh limes
1 tbsp tamari
1 tbsp brown rice vinegar
2 tbsp Organic Kitchen smooth peanut butter
1 tsp sriracha
Salt to taste
1 garlic clove, minced

How to Make it

  1. In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, tamari, brown rice vinegar, peanut butter, sriracha, and minced garlic, and add a little salt if needed. Stir well and once creamy place, covered, in the refrigerator to chill and thicken.
  2. Bring a pot of water to the boil and once bubbling throw in the soba noodles. Soba cook more quickly than ordinary spaghetti, so stir with a slatted spoon regularly.
  3. Once cooked, rinse under cold water. If necessary, add a few ice cubes to the noodles to cool them down even more.
  4. In a serving bowl, place the cooled noodles and top with diced cucumber and chopped basil first; then the sauce and black sesame seeds. Stir until everything combined and – chopsticks at the ready – dig in!
