  • 1 Colander
  • 1 Medium pot


  • 9.5 oz soba noodles
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, cut into matchsticks
  • ½ English cucumber, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 handful of cilantro, chopped
  • 1 cup frozen edamame


  • 2 tb neutral oil (canola, vegetable, etc)
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 3 tb honey (maple syrup if vegan)
  • 2 tb rice vinegar
  • 2 tb sesame oil
  • 6 tb soy sauce

Recipe Instructions

  • Bring a medium pot of water to a boil (no need to salt the water). Cook the noodles until al dente according to package instructions, about 4 - 5 minutes. Drain into a colander and rinse soba noodles under cold water. Drain well, transfer to a bowl, and toss in a drizzle of sesame oil.
  • Bring a small pot of water to a boil and add edamame. Cook until done, roughly 2 - 3 minutes. Drain into a colander and rinse with cold water. Drain and set aside.
  • Make the dressing. Combine oils, rice vinegar, red pepper flakes, soy sauce and honey in a small mixing bowl. Mix well until combined.
  • In a large bowl, combine soba noodles, edamame, carrots, cucumber, green onion, cilantro, and cucumber. Add the dressing and toss to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.


If you think you will have leftovers, save some of the dressing for later. Store in a separate container from noodles.
