Veggie Soba Noodles

June 21, 2011

Wow the past few weeks have been a complete blur.  While these pockets of intense work prevent me from spending much time making fun elaborate meals, they force me to add quick and easy dishes to my recipe collection–like these veggie sesame soba noodles.  This might quite possibly be one of the most low maintenance meals and the fact that it’s packed with veggies and is super healthy is an added little bonus.  And I wouldn’t be writing this if they didn’t come out tasting pretty amazing–I’m sure they’d be even better with some type of added protein, so feel free to add in your favorite.
