Soba Noodles in Spicy Curry Peanut Sauce

Happy Monday!

It's a beautiful summer morning here in Michigan, and as I sit here looking out my window at the torrential downpour, (I happen to think rain is beautiful!), sipping on my hemp and beetroot smoothie, I realized that I never posted a recipe that I am absolutely in love with, and I can't believe I haven't shared it yet!

First I'd like to share that I have updated my Fitness page and am going to try to get better at keeping that current each week. This week is a doozy! I have a wedding to go to out of town this week, so I rearranged things so my rest evening would fall the night of the wedding.

 As you will see, I've incorporated Piyo workouts into my weekly schedule. I don't drink Shakeology (I prefer to make my own whole foods protein shakes), but I do really enjoy the Piyo workouts and would recommend them. Check out my schedule and feel free to follow along! Have you started Tone It Up yet? What are you waiting for! 

Alright, without further ado, here is the recipe!

These spicy curry peanut noodles are creamy, comforting, slightly coconut-y and just a smidge spicy. You can control the level of spice you prefer by adding in some of the jalepeno seeds, or leaving them out completely for less kick. It comes together very quickly, and can be doubled for a family portion or halved if you're cooking for one.

(Unfortunately, these noodles were sorely me though, they taste delicious!)

Soba noodles in spicy curry peanut sauce (serves 2)

4 oz Soba noodles (if you are gluten free, make sure you get soba noodles that are pure buckwheat and do not contain wheat)

1 Large carrot, chopped
1/2 Large or 1 small jalepeno, diced, and seeded if you want it less spicy
1/4 C. Lite canned coconut milk. 
1 T. Peanut butter
2 t. Sriracha or hot sauce of choice
2 t. Tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
1 1/2 t. Curry powder
Juice from 1/2 lime
Cilantro to garnish (optional- but recommended!)

Prepare the soba noodles according to package directions, set aside.

In a small saucepan, combine carrot, jalepeno and sauce ingredients. Whisk together and heat on medium heat. Add noodles and stir to combine.

Garnish with cilantro and enjoy!
