Sweet and Spicy Soba Noodles
This is a really easy recipe to throw together and very satisfying. I used Japanese Soba Noodles which are made from whole wheat flour and buckwheat and cook in about four minutes. I sauteed the vegetables in coconut oil which has some amazing health benefits (read more about them here), I used the vegetables I had on hand which were mushrooms, onions and sweet peppers.
I cooked it all up and tossed it into a sauce made from organic molasses, cilantro herb paste, green onions, and asian sweet chili sauce. The molasses mixed with the cilantro makes for a very distinct flavor and I find myself using that combination in a lot of dishes. The sweet chili sauce adds just the right amount of spice to it, without being overbearing. It reallys hits the spot (and the sweet tooth!) I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Meanwhile, in a medium sized bowl, combine the molasses, green peppers, asian sweet chili sauce and cilantro herb paste and mix well. Set aside.
When your vegetables are ready, toss the soba noodles into the pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the noodles are sufficiently warmed back up.
