Noodle Passport | Soba Noodle Salad

By October 27, 2020May 3rd, 2024Recipes

Soba noodles are Japanese noodles made of buckwheat flour that can be eaten hot or cold. The sauce is made using the flavors of soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, and honey to balance the strong flavors. To the noodles we added edamame, celery, green onions, cilantro, bok choy, and carrots. The veggies add crunch, flavor, and nutrients to the dish. Edamame is a great source of protein, and bok choy is a great source of potassium, calcium, and vitamin K. The longer you let the salad marinate, the more flavorful it will taste!
