  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbs. peeled, grated fresh gingerroot
  • 2 green onions (white and pale green parts), chopped
  • 2 Tbs. unsalted peanut butter
  • 2 Tbs. tahini
  • 2 tsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbs. rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbs. sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1 lb. soba noodles, somen or driedlinguine


Bring large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, in food processor or blender, combine all ingredients except noodles and process until smooth. Transfer sauce to large bowl.

When water boils, add noodles and stir to prevent sticking. Cook noodles according to package directions or until al dente. Drain, rinse under cold running water and drain again.

Transfer noodles to bowl with sauce and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, at least 3 hours. Toss again before serving.
