  • 2 tbsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp. peanut butter or almond butter
  • 2 tbsp grated fresh ginger (optional)
  • 3 tbsp. fresh lime juice, plus more as needed
  • 2 tbsp plus 1 tsp low-salt soy sauce or tamari

for the salad

  • 4 portions of soba noodles
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for the noodles
  • 1 (16 oz) bag frozen shelled edammame, thawed
  • 1 sweet red pepper, diced
  • 0.5 cucumber, diced
  • 1 carrrot, julienned

  • sesame seeds, for serving

Instructions

  1. Make the Sauce: Combine the garlic, sesame oil, peanut butter, ginger, and 2-3 Tbl water in a food processor and process until smooth.
  2. Make the noodles: Cook the soba noodles according to the instructions on the package. Drain the noodles and rinse them under cold water. Transfer to a large bowl and toss them with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil (to prevent them from sticking).
  3. Make the salad: Add the edamame, bell peper, cucumber, carrot, spring onions, and coriander to the bowl with the noodles and toss until well combined.
  4. Serve!
