  • 5 cup broccoli florets (about 1 1/2 pounds broccoli)

  • cup gluten-free creamy peanut butter

  • 2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon chile oil*

  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ cup chopped green onions (4)

  • cup chopped cashews or almonds


  1. Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Peel and devein shrimp, leaving tails intact if desired. Rinse shrimp; pat dry with paper towels.

  2. In a Dutch oven cook soba in a large amount of boiling water for 4 minutes. Stir in broccoli; cook for 2 minutes. Stir in shrimp; cook for 2 to 3 minutes more or until shrimp are opaque and noodles are tender but still firm.

  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl stir together peanut butter and tamari. Stir in vinegar, sesame oil, chile oil, ginger, and garlic.

  4. Drain noodle mixture; return to Dutch oven. Add peanut butter mixture, green onions, and nuts; toss gently to coat.


If you can't find chile oil at your supermarket or local Asian food store, substitute 1 tablespoon vegetable oil plus a dash of bottled hot pepper sauce for the 1 tablespoon chile oil.
