Ginger Citrus Soba with Green Beans and Edamame

April 10, 2013

Hello, Flavor Town!  If you’re looking to wake up those taste buds of yours, this recipe is the winning ticket.  The flavor combination of the citrus, spice, sesame, and soy are incomparable… while the veggies and nutty sesame seeds are the icing on the cake.

Wake up senses!  It’s Spring time!

Gather your ingredients.  Mostly, the list is pretty simple.  You might have to look around for those black sesame seeds, but don’t fret too much if you can’t find them.  Also, the original recipe called for snow peas instead of green beans.  I’m not sure how I managed to forget that item in the grocery store, so I improvised with some frozen beans that I already had and it turned out juuuust fine.

Citrus sauce; orange and lime juice, soy sauce, sriracha, toasted sesame oil, and minced fresh ginger.

Whisk and inhale!  Breathe some life back into your Winter bones.

Cook soba noodles according to the package directions.  I’m pretty sure I over-cooked mine slightly… don’t do that, but things will still turn out fine if you do.

While your noodles cook, the sauce simmers in a pot.  Once it thickens a bit, in go the edamame followed by green beans.

Lastly, the cooked noodles are added and tossed with sauce and veggies.  Add more lime juice and sriracha, if you’re living on the wild (extra spicy) side of life.  Garnish with white and black sesame seeds and dig in!  I could have eaten this whole pot myself, but refrained and kept some for lunch the next day.
