We sure do love our almond butter here at Ezra Cohen Montreal, and not just for spreading on toast! Almond butter can be used in all different sorts of savory and sweet preparations, from our vegan and paleo Almond Butter Bars with Chocolate and Sea Salt to our unbeatable Almond Butter Beet Dip with Lemon and Chili. And today we’re back with another great almond butter recipe: our slightly sweet, slightly spicy almond butter noodles topped with roasted almonds and tons of delicious veggies.
Almond butter noodles might just be one of the most versatile dishes around. Eat them warm or cold and customize them to your preferences with any veggies and/or protein options of your choosing. Once you’ve got the base recipe down, the sky’s the limit so far as what you can do with them.
Ready to eat? Let’s get cooking.
For the almond butter dressing:
- ½ cup Ezra Cohen Montreal Natural Almond Butter
- ⅓ cup of rice wine vinegar
- ¼ cup toasted sesame oil
- ¼ cup coconut aminos
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- ½ tbsp sambal oelek or sriracha (or less, if you don’t want it too spicy)
- 2 tbsp freshly grated ginger
- 2 cloves garlic, grated
For the noodles:
- ½ pound soba noodles
- 3 bell peppers (we like to do one red, one yellow, one orange), diced
- 2 carrots, peeled and diced
- 1 cucumber, diced
- ¾ cup shelled edamame
- 5 scallions, white parts chopped and green parts set aside for garnish
- ½ cup almonds, lightly roasted and chopped
- 2 tbsp sesame seeds
- Cook your soba noodles according to package directions. Once done, drain in a colander and then immediately rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process. Pat dry.
- Add cooked soba noodles and veggies to a large bowl and stir until well combined. Set aside.
- Whisk together all almond butter dressing ingredients until smooth. If it’s a little too thick, add water a teaspoon at a time until the dressing has reached your desired consistency.
- Pour almond butter dressing over noodles and veggies and stir to combine. Garnish with leftover scallions, chopped almonds, and sesame seeds.
These almond butter noodles can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to five days, though we doubt they’ll last that long! For a complete meal, top with crispy baked tofu or serve alongside your favorite potstickers.
