Recipe: Sesame Lime Soba Noodles with Snow Peas and Shiitake Mushrooms

After a day indulging in chocolate and other Valentine's treats, perhaps you're looking for a dinner that is bright, lively, energizing, and 'clean'.

These Sesame Lime Soba Noodles are just what this vegan mama ordered!

 (Well, I wish I could order them - today of all days... I'll spare you the mama details.)

Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour, but are sometimes combined with other flours like kamut, or wheat.  The noodles are tender and not gummy, and usually very digestible.  Here, they are tossed with a quick saute of shiitake mushrooms and fresh snow peas in a light, Asian-inspired sauce with a good dose of sprightly, fresh lime juice.

It is an easy meal to prepare, will liven up your palate, and give you a boost - at a time of the year when we really need it.

This recipe is from eat, drink & be vegan, but I have just posted it for you.  Enjoy!

Are YOU cooking anything special today to reinvigorate your body and senses?

Mmm, this is probably my favorite dish from ED&BV. I make it all the time. Yum!

Nice! I tend to 'forget' about this one sometimes, probably because the flavors (and mushrooms) aren't a fave for our kids, but I love the freshness (and lightness) of it. Thanks for the note Jennifer. :)
