Love & Lemons Sesame Soba Noodles

I’ve talked about Love & Lemons on the blog before because it has always been one of my favorites! I love the blog and the cookbooks, and I draw inspiration from a lot of her recipes. I joined her cooking club this year and I’m loving it! Every month she sends out a new recipe and has her readers send in pictures, which I think is super cute. It’s nice to be in a community during this time of isolation. I highly recommend joining– message me if you do! This recipe is super fresh and nutritious and I absolutely love it. It makes for great leftovers and looks gorgeous. Whenever you feel like mixing up your typical takeout, try this one out! Here’s the original recipe.

  • 6 oz soba noodles
  • 2 sliced avocados
  • 2 c blanched snap peas
  • ¼ c shelled edamame
  • 1/4 c fresh scallions
  • 1 sliced watermelon radish
  • sesame dressing (below)
  • fresh cracked black pepper

Bring a pot of unsalted water to a boil and cook soba noodles as directed, about 4 mins. Drain and rinse with cold water. Toss noodles with snap peas, edamame, scallions, and dressing. Divide between bowls and top with radish and avocados.

Sesame Dressing:

  • ¼ c white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • ½ tsp toasted sesame oil (more to taste)
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp maple syrup

Whisk ingredients together.

Tips/Things I Would Change:

  • I added a little extra sesame oil, ginger, and maple syrup to the dressing. I kept the measurements the same so that you can change them to your tastes.
  • I think red pepper flakes may be a nice addition if you’re looking for a kick.
  • I don’t think the original recipe specified, but I really liked serving this dish chilled; it was very refreshing.
