Soba Noodles with Curry-Peanut Sauce and Tuscan Kale

This is the first dish we feature made by cookbook writer, chef, nutritionist and GRIMling Lisbeth Tordendahl.

She recently approached us, handing us over a copy of her book “Kål og Kærlighed”, which features over 100 recipes, all with cruciferous vegetables, which counts with cauliflower, cabbage, garden cress, bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and similar green leaf vegetables into their large family.

So be excited for many more to come, and if you can’t wait, we recommend you to get her book right away!

Her recipe is made with cooked soba noodles, which is basically buckwheat flower, but you can, of course, use other noodles if you prefer.
