"Learn to love big heaps of vegetables," Mark Bittman says, "and pile them on until you're more than satisfied." To achieve that feeling, try meatless proteins, such as edamame, an ingredient in this noodle dish.
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook soba noodles until al dente, 8 minutes. Drain and rinse.
Meanwhile, make the dressing: Whisk together garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, vinegar, honey, Sriracha, and lime juice and zest. Season with pepper. In a large bowl, combine cabbage, edamame, carrots, scallions, red onion, cilantro, and sesame seeds. Add reserved soba and dressing; toss. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with scallions and sesame seeds.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
