http://www.budgetbytes.com/2011/09/ginger-scallion-soba-salad/ Budget Bytes is a website where the author creates, prepares and then photographs her recipes, all made for a cost of under $10 (in USA at least). She includes beautiful pictures and step by step instructions, the link the this recipe is above. I am adopting it to share the love, but I do encourage you to check out her website for MANY more amazing ideas. This recipe should be approx $8.30 to make, cheaper if you already have items or they are on special.
- 8 ounces soba noodles
- 3 medium green onions
- 3 inches fresh ginger
- 1⁄4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 medium red bell pepper
- 1⁄2 lb carrot
- 8 ounces frozen shelled edamame
- First prepare the ginger scallion dressing. Peel the ginger and grate it straight into a bowl to catch the juices. Slice the green onions, tip to end. Add the vegetable oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and honey to the scallions and grated ginger. Set aside until you’re ready to assemble the salad.
- Put a medium pot of water on to boil. When it reaches a rolling boil, add the soba noodles and cook according to the package directions (boil for about 5 minutes or until al dente).
- While you’re waiting for the water to reach a boil (and for the noodles to cook once added), prepare the vegetables. Take the edamame out of the freezer and let thaw. Clean and slice the bell pepper and carrots into a thin matchsticks.
- When the noodles are finished cooking, drain them in a colander until most of the water is gone. Do not rinse under cold water or else the dressing won’t stick and your salad will be soggy. Immediately combine the noodles, vegetables, and ginger scallion dressing. Toss to coat with dressing and serve.
