Buckwheat Noodle Salad

This is one for all you fellow peanut butter lovers. Peanut butter makes a regular appearance in my breakfast bowl, putting it on my porridge was the ultimate game changer for me. I usually eat PB sweet but I decided to mix things up and give my beloved a savoury makeover.

This peanut dressing is super creamy and packs a punch.The recipe can easily multiplied if you’re feeding a gang or if you just want  a little extra to have on standby.  Here I’ve paired it with buckwheat noodles and crunchy veg for a satisfying stand alone dish but it makes a great side dish. Any type of noodles would work here, you could even try “zoodles” which are all the rage these days.

Buckwheat Noodle Salad with Peanut Dressing (Serves 2)

Ingredients:

2 sticks of Buckwheat Noodles (165g approximately)

1/2 Red Pepper, finely sliced

1/2 Yellow Pepper, finely sliced

1 Cup Sugarsnap Peas, finely sliced

2 Spring Onions, finely sliced

Handful of Unsalted Peanuts, chopped

For the dressing:

1/4 Cup of Crunchy Peanut Butter

1 teaspoon of Dark Soya Sauce

1 clove of Garlic, crushed

1 teaspoon  of  freshly grated Ginger

1 Chilli, finely chopped (My chillis were very mild so use less depending on the type of chilli you have)

Juice of 1 Lime

1/4 cup of Coconut Milk

Optional garnishes: unsalted peanuts, corriander, spring onions and chilli.

Method:

  • Cook you noodles as per packet instructions. Once cooked drain and run under cold water to stop the cooking process and cool the noodles down quickly.
  • Now get on with making the dressing.You could use a blender here but I like to just use a good old fashioned bowl and whisk.  Place all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together until smoooth and everything is fully combined. Taste and adjust flavours to your taste.
  • Place the noddles and your chopped vegetables into a large bowl. Pour over the dressing and mix through with a fork until all of the noodles are coated with the dressing.
  • Put the salad onto a large serving plate and sprinkle with the chopped peanuts.
