Recipe

A healthy and delicious veggie packed recipe that's ready in under 10 minutes! Sesame Sugar Snap Peas, Edamame, and Carrot Soba Noodles.

Can you believe that this meal comes together in about 10 minutes! Hearty soba noodles, edamame, carrots, sugar snap peas, and a simple soy sauce and sesame dressing truly make a delicious meal that is perfect for warm summer nights.

Lately it has been getting hot during the day and without air conditioning, I need dinners that produce minimal extra heat so that we all don't melt during dinner. Since soba noodles only need about 5 minutes of cooking, they are a great option for nights like this. They also taste delicious cold, which is how I normally like to serve them. Although you could keep the veggies raw for this dish, I like to boil them with the noodles for 2-3 minutes until they are just tender. This makes them super bright in color and also a little easier to eat. Then with a simple dressing that uses soy sauce, sesame oil, lime juice, honey, and some Asian chili garlic paste - dinner is ready. I always add fresh cilantro to the mix but you could also add mint, parsley, or Thai basil.
