Sesame Soba Noodles with Green Bell Peppers

Green bell peppers. Yes you know them. The bitter ones in the three color pepper packaging. Every time I buy that package this color is the last one to go. It usually stays in the fridge until the point it needs to be thrown away. But today I decided to use it and make a delicious recipe out of it. My obsession with Asian cuisine made me believe that I can transform it in something awesome. The result was delicious enough that I wanted to share it with you! The recipe is as always super easy and the whole dish can be finished in less than 15min with preparation included. See for yourself ๐Ÿ™‚

Sesame Soba Noodles with Green Bell Peppers

INGREDIENTS
serves 1-2
75g (one roll) soba noodles
one bell pepper julienned
20g sesame seeds
1-2 tbsp soy sauce (depending on how salty you want it)
one garlic clove minced
1-2 roasted and salted nori sheets packages

OPTIONAL:
1tbsp sesame oil
1tsp coconut sugar

METHOD
Cook soba noodles as instructed on the packaging. Put sesame oil (or a little bit of water) in a pan, add garlic. Fry for a couple of seconds until browned, then add bell peppers and cook until you reach the desired softness. If not using oil make sure there is enough water that the peppers don’t stick and burn. Add soy sauce, sesame seeds, soba noodles and coconut sugar. Stir well and remove from heat when all is combined. Cut nori sheets in smaller pieces and add to the dish just before serving. You could also eat them next to your dish to preserve the crunchiness. Kimchi goes great with this dish.
