Prep time: 10 minutes

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag buckwheat soba noodles
  • 1 cup shelled organic edamame
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds

 

Sesame Peanut Dressing
  • 1/3 cup organic plain peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar or rice vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped green onion

Instructions:

  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook the noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water, return to pot. If the edamame is frozen, bring to boil a small pot of water and cook the edamame for 5 minutes.
  2. Prepare the dressing: in a small skillet, add a tablespoon of sesame oil and lightly toast the sesame seeds and peanuts for 2-4 minutes.  In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients until smooth.
