Soba noodles with peanut sauce

Soba noodles are Japanese noodles made of of buckwheat and are healthier than the regular spaghetti. They are rich in protein and vitamins B1 an B2. The ones that I have used here have wild yam added to it.
I pack of soba noodles
Frozen artichoke (about a cup)
Other mixed vegetables (snow peas, carrots, chestnuts, peas, mushroom, bean sprouts etc)
 Crushed roasted peanuts (1/4 cup)
2tbsp ginger garlic paste
For the sauce
Peanut butter unsweetened(1/2 cup)
3 tbsp soy sauce
1tbsp rice vinegar
4 tbsp honey
1tbsp chilli oil
1-2 tsp sriracha (Thai hot sauce)
1tbsp hoisin sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Sesame or peanut oil for cooking
Cilantro for garnishing

Boil the noodles for about 10 minutes or as per instructions and keep aside. Heat oil in a pan and add the ginger garlic paste, stir for a few seconds and add the noodles. Add all the vegetables, salt and pepper. For the sauce mix all the ingredients and blend well and add to the noodles. Add some water if needed. Adjust seasonings according to taste. It can be made spicier or sweeter by adding more honey or chilli sauce. Cover and let it cook for about a minute till the sauce coats the noodles. Serve the noodles with crushed peanuts and cilantro.
