So-ba Good

Our dinner tonight-Sesame Vegetables and Soba Noodles-was based on one of Rachael Ray's 30 minute meal. The Soba (100% Buckwheat) Noodles were a bit expensive, yet this meatless meal was affordable in the end.  

Sesame Vegetables & Soba Noodles

(Serves 2)

Saute garlic, scallions, ginger and pepper in sesame oil for 3 minutes.
2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 tablespoon scallions, diced
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
1 banana pepper, cut in julienne strips

Add edamame, sprouts, broccoli and carrots and saute for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
1/3 cup edamame, shelled
1/3 cup sprouted mung beans
4 broccoli spears, cut thinly, with leaves
3 multi-colored carrots, peeled and cut thinly in julienne strips (I precooked the carrots for 60 seconds in water in the microwave)
Add soy sauce.   
1 tablespoon soy sauce

While vegetables are sauteing, cook noodles in boiling water for 8 minutes. 
2 ounce Soba noodles
Stir noodles into vegetables.
Plate and garnish with sesame seeds.
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds.
