Peanut Satay with Cucumber and Buckwheat Sabo Noodles

Updated: May 2, 2023

When I was 18, my diet wasn’t the best, I had no idea what to eat, and my range was slim (lots of junk). I was fortunate enough to have a fast metabolism that I took for granted over the years. While in Sydney, I lived near a hole-in-the-wall noodle bar with the best Asian food. I lived off this $5 satay rice. This consisted of broccoli, carrots, rice and satay sauce (don’t judge it was delicious).

Now I am a little older and wiser about my body and what it needs; it’s funny how my I still like to eat satay, but now I make a healthier version at home. I love making this satay for noodle dishes it also works as a mouthwatering dipping sauce.

This is a super quick and easy recipe with bursts of rich sweet, spicy flavours.

You will need:

2 cucumber, spiralized 

1 pack of Sabo Buckwheat Noodles  

2 broccolini, chopped 

2 carrots, julienned 1 cup snow peas, chopped in halves 1 cup of purple cabbage, chopped coarsely 1 tbsp peanut oil or olive oil

Peanut Satay

1 cup of peanut butter store-bought or my homemade recipe here

1/2 cup of coriander chopped into small pieces 1 tbsp of freshly grated ginger 1 clove garlic crushed 2 fresh cayenne pepper chilli chopped finely 1/2 tsp coconut sugar 1 tbsp tamari half lime juiced

How to make:

To make the peanut sauce add the peanut butter, coriander, ginger, garlic, chilli, coconut sugar, tamari and lime into a mixing bowl. Stir till well combined- if its to thick add a little bit of water at a time till you get a sauce consistency.

Add the broccolini, carrots, snow peas, cabbage and oil to a large frying pan on medium heat and saute for 5 minutes and set aside

In a pot bring water to the boil; add the sabo buckwheat noodles to the pot and cook for 3-4 minutes; drain and rinse with cold water.

Put the frying pan back on the stove on medium heat for 2 minutes to heat up the vegetables; take off the stove and add the buckwheat noodles and cucumber noodles, mix together with the sauteed vegetables; transfer to serving plate or bowls.

In the same frying pan add the peanut sauce on medium heat for 2- minutes till it heats up.  Pour over your noodles and with tongs mix through.
