Today we are going to make a healthy delicious dish . The soba noodle dish we are going to make soothes the soul.
Soba means buckwheat in Japan. The soba noodles look like spaghetti but have a nuttier flavor. A two ounce serving of dry soba noodles contain 6 o 8 grams of protein. Soba is full of minerals and a good source of B vitamins. In addition, The World's Healthiest Foods claims that a diet rich in buckwheat may reduce risk of high blood pressure, and also lowers blood cholesterol levels.
Enjoy this hearty meal!
6 ounces green peas
9 ounces soba noodles
1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 medium parsnip (peeled and shaved into thin strips)
1 medium carrot (peeled and shaved into thin strips)
1 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
4 scallions, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon shoyu or tamari soy sauce
1/3 cup coarsely chopped fresh mint
Freshly ground pepper.
Prepare an ice-water bath and set aside. Bring a large pot(8 quart) of water to boil and add sea salt. Place peas in the pot and cook until bright green and tender, about 3 minutes.
