These cold sesame noodles are delicious, cheap, super easy to make and take five minutes from start to finish. All you need is pantry ingredients and a bit of cabbage and/or carrot.
How to make it:
Step 1. Whisk together 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil, 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter, 1/2 teaspoon honey, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 teaspoon rice vinegar, 1 teaspoon sambal and 2 tablespoons coconut milk.
Step 2. Toss freshly cooked soba noodles into the sauce, followed by shredded carrots and/or cabbage for both crunch and freshness. That’s already all there is to it!
