The Heat is On Soba Noodles make a perfect lunch, snack or side dish for dinner. To balance out the heat of the peanut butter I added some soy sauce and lemon juice. Then I topped them with chopped peanuts for crunch. These are great eaten warm right after being prepared, or packed cold for a picnic. I love to eat them late at night when I am in the mood for a healthy, protein packed snack.

    The Heat is On is too hot for me. But at the suggestion of another commenter, I subbed half of the hot stuff for plain ol chunky and it was right in my range. I also used whole wheat spaghetti because it was on sale. Topped with tofu and stuck in fridge for lunch.

    I did notice that it’s not totally smooth. Maybe needs some oil? Tastes just fine though. I see this becoming a regular lunch item
