It's a delicious meat-free dish.

• 1/2 pound soba, or whole-wheat linguine or spaghetti
• 1/4 cup honey
• 1/4 cup soy sauce
• 2 tablespoons rice vinegar or sherry vinegar
• 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
• One 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
• 1 large clove garlic, grated or finely chopped
• 1/3 cup olive oil or vegetable oil
• 1 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed
• 2 large carrots, coarsely grated

• 3 tablespoons mixed black sesame seeds and toasted
white sesame seeds
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the soba and cook until al dente. Drain.
Meanwhile, combine the honey, soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, ginger and garlic in a large bowl. Whisk in the olive oil. Add the edamame, carrots, scallions and soba to the bowl and toss to combine. Garnish with the sesame seeds.
I think I’ve mentioned that I try to go meat free at lest once a week and this is a good recipe to try. You can eat it warm or cold. I only had white sesame seeds which was fine. Also I had some extra snap peas so I sliced them and added them to the salad. I did not use as much honey as the recipe called for, I don’t like it too sweet. I did add some chili oil for spice.
