This Cold Peanut Soba Noodle with Broccoli dish makes the perfect meatless main dish or summery side dish.
Lately I have been loving cold noodle salads that break out of the traditional pasta salad recipes, like this cold soba noodle salad with crunchy veggies and a delicious peanut butter dressing. The soba noodles also cook in 3 minutes meaning this whole meal comes together in about 10 minutes, making it ideal for a busy night. You can add any veggies you like and could add some protein as well. Cooked chicken, baked tofu, shrimp, or even eggs would all be delicious additions.
