Walnut Miso Soba Noodles*
Yield 2 Servings
A hearty, colorful soba noodle bowl recipe that's as pretty as it is delicious made with our Organic Planet Organic Soba Noodles. This is a variation of a recipe by one of our favorite bloggers, Heidi Swanson from 101 Cookbooks.
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Salt generously and cook the noodles per package directions, being careful not to overcook. Drain and set aside.
- Lightly steam while string beans. Add string beans to pasta.
- To make the dressing, use a food processor, blender or hand blender to puree the walnuts, olive oil, garlic, miso paste, vinegar, and honey. Add the warm water a bit at a time until the dressing is the consistency of a heavy cream. Taste and add salt if you think it needs it.
- Toss noodles and string beans with dressing to taste. Arrange in two bowls or on a platter and top with roasted walnuts.
In Heidi's original recipe she uses asparagus in place of string beans and adds sliced green onions, sauteed slivered rainbow chard leaves and chopped stems, toasted walnuts, and some chives on top.
