I’ve always been interested in cooking, but it wasn’t really until my junior year of college that I started to pay attention to what I was eating. It was the first time I had lived in an apartment and while I could have made the trek to the dining halls on campus to have someone else make my meals, I knew my parents were paying a boatload for me to eat there and I was burnt out on my sushi, salad bar, and diet soda routine. So each week I started taking the train into the city to go grocery shopping. I’d stock up on frozen vegetables, noodles, tofu/tempeh, and soy sauce, and then live on stir-fry lunches and dinners while my roommates ordered pizza or Chinese take-out. The stir-fry I made was cheap and healthy, but it could have been a whole lot more satisfying.

Since then, I’ve continued to improve my recipe repertoire. One of the most important things I’ve taken away is that a good sauce can make a dish. On their own, veggies and noodles doused in soy sauce taste one-note and get old fast, but add in a balanced sauce and it’s a completely new and exciting dish.

Peanut sauce will forever be at the top of my favorites list. On those days where I’m tempted to order take-out but know a simple recipe is going to be better for me and my budget, this House of Tsang Bangkok Peanut Sauce™ totally hits the spot. It’s spicy, sweet, salty, peanut-y and I love the ginger and lemongrass flavors. Also, all I need to do is open the bottle! (Because let’s be honest—sometimes having part of the meal pre-made is the difference between making dinner at home or ordering in.)

I’m a big believer that in stir-fry, fresh vegetables are the way to go. Aside from using frozen shelled edamame, the veggies in this noodle recipe are fresh—lots of shiitake mushrooms, chopped broccoli, and sliced scallions. And because I live for toppings, it’s garnished with chopped peanuts, sesame seeds, a few squeezes of fresh lime, and sriracha for a little extra heat.

These spicy shiitake soba noodles are so much better than the veggie noodle dishes I was cooking up in college. If you’re looking for a quick weeknight dinner or an alternative to not-so-healthy weekend take-out, this is your recipe. And as an added bonus, I can vouch that the leftovers taste just as awesome over the next couple of days!

Ingredients

For the noodles:

  • 6 ounces soba noodles
  • 1 cup shelled edamame
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
  • 1/2 small head broccoli, chopped
  • 3 scallions, sliced

For the garnish:

  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • sriracha (to taste)

Cuisine: Vegan Servings: 4

Prep Time: 15 mins Cook Time: 15 mins Total Time: 30 mins

This simple peanut soba noodle stir-fry takes just 30 minutes to make and it's so much healthier than take-out! It's loaded with fresh shiitake mushrooms, broccoli, plus a totally crave-worthy peanut sauce. The leftovers are just as great over the next couple of days too!

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the soba noodles according to the package instructions. During the last 5 minutes of cooking, add in the edamame.
  • Just after you add the edamame: Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add in the sesame oil then garlic. Cook until the garlic is a light golden brown and fragrant, stirring every so often so it doesn't burn. Add the shiitake mushrooms and broccoli and cook, stirring occasionally until tender (about 3-4 minutes).
  • Drain the noodles and edamame. Once the shiitakes and broccoli are cooked, turn off the heat. Add the noodles, edamame, scallions, and peanut sauce to your skillet. (If your skillet isn’t large enough, transfer everything to a large mixing bowl). Gently toss to combine.
  • Divide into bowls and garnish with chopped peanuts, sesame seeds, a lime wedge, and sriracha.

Notes [2]

You can store any leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a few days.

Not a fan of edamame? Feel free to use tofu for your plant-based protein instead.

    I have a feeling I am going to looooove this meal. Noodles, Asian food, and peanut sauce are three of my favorite things! (I also like that I can just buy the sauce because #lazy) 😉

    Peanut sauce on all the things! This looks super yummy. Where did you buy the House of Tsang sauce? Whole Foods? I haven’t heard of it but it sounds amazing and I’d love to pick some up the next time I’m grocery shopping.

    Oh man, thinking back to college food – yowza. lol I didn’t eat nearly as healthy as you and I still get queasy thinking about all the Domino’s pizza I ate (and cheap beer with it!). Thank god my cooking skills have improved along with my taste. This recipe is beautiful. I always appreciate that your food is easy to make because it does make the difference between ordering in and making dinner. Thank you for everything you do!

    I just found your website through a friend and I’m so happy I did! It seems like we have similar cooking styles and I’m looking forward to working my way through your posts. I just love soba noodles and can’t wait to try this Bangkok peanut sauce! Thank you.

    “I was burnt out on my sushi, salad bar, and diet soda routine” <— Uh, I think we were the same person in college?! Bahaha I ate tons of sushi and salad bar and ALWAYS washed it down with diet coke with a lemon wedge (still kind of miss the diet coke if I'm being honest…). I didn't have a kitchen at my dorm or else I too would have been making hella stir fry every night. I NEED to try your healthier soba noodle peanut sauce version really soon. I am a sucker for shiitakes. <3

  6. i didnt cook or even care to cook while i was in college…plus i lived in the dorm. this is my kind of a meal too, esp the peanut sauce.

  7. Liz says

    I try not to even THINK about all the those disastrous “meals” I ate in college! I’ve definitely come a long way from those crazy years too 🙂 This looks incredible— loveeee soba noodles! Adding it to my list to try soon!
