I love all the seasons but must confess, BRUNCH season is the best! You can use any of your favorite veggies + vegan cheese with this simple plant-based quiche base. If you’re ambitious, go on with your bad self and make a home made pie crust. Lazy cooks, head to the store and grab a decent pre-made crust (my preference is in the recipe notes below). Enjoy with copious amounts of mimosa!🍾🍊🥂

This peanutty noodle dish is delicious, craveable, and healthy. Think of it as comfort food pasta for peanut lovers! Soba noodles are rich in the good-for-you grain buckwheat and the creamy flavorful peanut sauce is the perfect complement. This sauce is delicious both thick and creamy and thin and light, it just depends on what you crave. You can also modify the sweetness and spiciness to suite your taste buds. Add some carrots or choose your own veggie accents to fold into this versatile recipe!

Cuisine: Asian
Serves: 2 servings
Ingredients
  • SWEET AND SPICY PEANUT SAUCE
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons peanut butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons grade B maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil ½ teaspoon grated peeled fresh
  • ginger Few pinches of cayenne
  • ¼ to ½ cup plain nondairy milk or
  • water (see Note)
  • 1 cup thinly sliced carrots
  • 2 teaspoons hemp or sesame seeds (optional)
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon crushed peanuts
  • 3 cups uncooked soba noodles
Instructions
  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse the noodles under cold water. For chilled noodles, transfer the noodles to a bowl and refrigerate until ready to use. Otherwise, cover the noodles to keep warm.
  2. For the Sweet and Spicy Peanut Sauce:
  3. In a food processor or blender, combine the peanut sauce ingredients, adding the nondairy milk last a spoonful at a time until you reach a thickness you like, and process until smooth. If the noodles are cold and dry, a wetter sauce may be best, but if the noodles were just cooked and are still steamy and slightly wet, a thinner sauce may be better. You can also adjust the thickness by adding a spoonful more or less of the nut butter.
  4. For warm noodles and sauce:
  5. Pour the sauce in a small saucepan and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes just to warm. Otherwise, pour the sauce directly over the chilled noodles and place back in the fridge until ready to serve.
  6. To serve, toss the dressed noodles with the carrots and
  7. seeds (if using) over the top. Sprinkle with the cilantro and peanuts to serve.

The pizza was baked to perfection and tasted fan-freakin-tastic. You can buy the Pizza Box online *HERE
