Soba Noodles with Bok Choy

This is an unusual dish. I love anything with a peanut sauce and this dish has that same texture but a different flavor. The sauce has tahini and almond butter in it. We really liked the flavors and it's a very filling and rich meatless meal.

8 oz soba noodles
sesame oil
1 large head of bok choy, cleaned, trimmed and sliced thin
1 bunch green onions, sliced
1 large handful of cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup chopped almonds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
grape seed oil

Sauce ingredients
Put into blender or food processor
1/2 cup tahini
1/4 cup almond butter
1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar
2 T soy sauce
Juice of one lime
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup olive oil
Combine all ingredients in blender or processor and then slowly add the oil to emulsify.

Boil noodles according to package-cook the noodles to just past al dente then drain, run cold water over and shake out excess water. Add them to a bowl and drizzle on some sesame oil to prevent sticking.

Heat some grape seed oil in wok or large fry pan and stir-fry almonds, sesame seeds and then throw in the noodles to get all that hot.

Turn the noodle mixture out onto platter and scatter the bok choy, onions, and cilantro over that. Toss each serving generously with sauce.

Sorry that the picture is not better-I was rushing and didn't focus very well!
