Colorful Veggie Sesame Noodles

Source recipe


  • 8 ounces soba noodles or spaghetti noodles of choice*
  • ¼ cup toasted sesame seeds
  • ⅓ cup reduced sodium tamari (or soy sauce, just be sure it’s reduced sodium or it will taste too salty)
  • ¼ cup toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (about 1 medium lime)
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced [skipped due to dietary restrictions]
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes [can be on the side]
  • 2 ½ cups thinly sliced red cabbage (about 10 ounces or ¼th medium cabbage)
  • 3 whole carrots, peeled and then sliced into ribbons with vegetable peeler (about 1 ½ cups)
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced into very thin strips [I think we skipped this]
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro [I think we skipped this]
  • 2 cups shelled edamame, steamed [we only found frozen pods, and put it on the side rather than shelling all at once]

Can we served with some protein on the side (e.g., shrimp or chicken).
