Soba noodles and edamame—a super quick, easy, healthy, and delicious meal. Whenever I’m in a rush and don’t have time to cook a full-out meal, I always whip this up. You can buy soba noodles in any organic section of a supermarket or in an Asian foods section. They’re buckwheat noodles and when combined with the perfect sauce, they’re a meal that anyone can enjoy.
1. First, you need to have two pots of water boiling simultaneously. Put the package of soba noodles in one pot and a bag on edamame in the other. Cover the edamame in the pot and let them cook on a medium temperature for about 3 minutes. The soba noodles will also cook really quickly so just constantly stir them and depending on your stove they should be done in 3-5 minutes.
2. Next, take the soba noodles, place them in a bowl, and add three caps of soy sauce, one cap of sugar-free rice vinegar, and drizzle some toasted sesame oil and agave. The toasted sesame oil is the key ingredient to this meal so make sure you have it or it won’t taste them same. Once all the sauce is added, mix the noodles around in it, add in your edamame, and place it in the refrigerator for about a half hour.
*If you don’t want to wait for the noodles to cool in the fridge you can run them under cold water in your sink before you add the sauce combination and it’ll taste great at room temperature at well.
