Recipe Difficulty: Easy
This noodle bowl starts with one of my favourite vegan cheese products. Chili Lime Fauxmage. It might seem strange to use vegan cheese in an asian inspired bowl, but this one is different because it uses fermented chili paste to pack a flavour punch. It adds creaminess and depth to the simple sauce that gets drizzled all over noodles and crisp sauteed veggies.
So, if you can, get your hands on some chili lime vegan cheese made by my friends over at Fresh Start Fauxmage, and make this recipe. It is a product available Canada wide, you can check their webpage for locations to purchase. The sauce is simple and addictively good. Soba noodles (or your favourite noodle) are first tossed with sesame oil and crisp sauteed veggies. Then you drizzle everything with the sauce made with the chili lime fauxmage over top.
In this delicious sauce you'll find chili lime fauxmage, coconut milk, red thai chili paste, fresh ginger, garlic, brown sugar, lime, soy sauce & sesame oil. You really have to try the chili lime fauxmage to understand it, but put it this way, it basically has a cult like following.
To garnish I really like toasted cashews, sesame seeds and scallions!
Feel free to substitute your favourite noodles and veggies in this recipe. The sauce will be amazing drizzled over practically anything!
The sauce gets heated a bit first, you want it to be really "drizzly", if it is too thick, your noodle dish will taste dry. You can just add a bit of water if it reduces too much. If you're digging into you're noodles and you find it needs moisture, I just sprinkle in a few tiny drips of hot water and toss.
Shop the Chopsticks that I use in my photo. I bought and love this variety pack with different colours of wood.
