Asian soba noodle dish
Today I was struggling for what to make for lunch. I didn't want another salad! The problem with eating plant strong is you get tired of salads. So I grabbed a bunch of stuff from the frig and went to work. Turns out, I made a yummy dish that the whole family loved. Quick, easy, and nutritious...now that's my kind of meal!
Soba noodles (I use the organic soba noodles from Costco-3 packets)
shelled edamame- 1 1/2 cups
Shitake mushrooms-1 1/2 cups (you can substitute portobello mushrooms as well
Chickpeas-1 can organic chickpeas rinsed and drained
chili paste (optional-if you like spicy)
Heat the soba noodles in pan with vegetable broth. When they are heated through, add the edamame, mushrooms, and chickpeas. Add teriyaki sauce-just enough to coat everything. If desired, add 1 tbsp chili paste. In separate pan, saute spinach with a little vegetable broth just until wilted. Mix spinach with noodle dish once noodle dish has simmered for 10 min. Serve in bowls. Serves hungry family of 5.
