How grateful I am to find comfort n your love and devotion!

Dear Lovers,

Did you know eating noodles keeps your body flexible? 

Today we are going  to make a healthy delicious dishThe 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!

Sea Salt
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.  Immediately transfer peas to ice-water bath.  This stops the cooking.  Now drain.  Return water to a boil and cook noodles according to package instructions.  Drain.  Rinse noodles with cold water; drain.

Transfer noodles to large bowl and add oils;  toss to combine.  Add peas, parsnip, carrot, ginger, scallions, soy sauce and mint.  Season with pepper.  Toss to combine.  Serve at room temperature.
