Soba Noodles with Shiitakes and Edamame — Meatless Monday

by in Recipes, January 13th, 2014

Soba Noodles with Shiitakes and EdamameWhether it’s because of hectic schedules or simply an undeniable craving, sometimes it’s tempting to pick up the phone and order delivery for dinner. But even on the busiest of weeknights, it’s possible to make some of your favorite takeout picks at home, and the results are often healthier and made with better ingredients. The secret to making supper in a flash is keeping a well-stocked pantry, so on the weekend — or when you find yourself with extra time — head to the supermarket to pick up some essentials like dried pasta and rice, cans of beans and basic condiments. It’s far simpler to recreate classic Asian takeout dishes, for instance, when you already have items like soy sauce, sesame oil and rice vinegar on hand.

Food Network Magazine puts all three of those Asian products to work in Soba Noodles with Shiitakes and Edamame (pictured above), its spin on a traditional Asian noodle dish. Ready to eat in only 35 minutes, this recipe comes together simply thanks to frozen, preshelled edamame and quick-cooking soba noodles, which take only 5-6 minutes to become al dente. This dinner gets it heft from tender, earthy shiitake mushrooms, and boasts a light, fresh finish from a dressing featuring blended cilantro and mint, plus soy sauce and sesame oil. For subtle spice and added flavor, add a bit of Sriracha to the food processor when making the dressing and balance the heat with a sprinkling more of cilantro before serving.
