Sugar Snap Pea and Carrot Soba Noodles!

A healthy, vibrant soba noodle recipe full of fresh springtime produce. Feel free to trade in other seasonal vegetables for the sugar snap peas, like chopped bell pepper. This recipe yields about six servings and the leftovers don’t keep particularly well, so halve the ingredients if you’re not serving a crowd.

INGREDIENTS:

Soba

6 ounces soba noodles or spaghetti noodles of choice;
2 cups frozen organic edamame;
10 ounces (about 3 cups) sugar snap peas or snow peas;
6 medium-sized carrots, peeled;
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro (about 2 handfuls);
¼ cup sesame seeds.

Ginger-sesame sauce

¼ cup reduced-sodium tamari or soy sauce;
2 tablespoons quality peanut oil or extra-virgin olive oil;
1 small lime, juiced;
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil;
1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar;
1 tablespoon white miso;
2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger;
1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce or sriracha.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Slice the peas in half lengthwise. Slice the carrots into long, thin strips with a julienne peeler, or slice them into ribbons with a vegetable peeler.

Whisk together the sauce ingredients in a small bowl until emulsified. Set aside.

Toast sesame seeds in a small pan for about 4 to 5 minutes over medium-low heat until they are golden.

In one boiling pot, cook the soba noodles. Cook the edamame in another pot until warmed. Toss the halved peas into the boilling edamame water and cook for a minute. Drain.

Combine the soba noodles, edamame, snap peas and carrots in a large serving bowl. Pour in the dressing and toss with salad servers. Toss in the chopped cilantro and toasted sesame seeds. Serve.

10 Proven Health Benefits of Ginger!

Ginger is among the healthiest (and most delicious) spices on the planet. It is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits for your body and brain.

Ginger has a very long history of use in various forms of traditional/alternative medicine. It has been used to help digestion, reduce nausea and help fight the flu and common cold, to name a few.

Ginger can be used fresh, dried, powdered, or as an oil or juice, and is sometimes added to processed foods and cosmetics. It is a very common ingredient in recipes.

The unique fragrance and flavor of ginger come from its natural oils, the most important of which is gingerol.

Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger, responsible for much of its medicinal properties. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.

Here are 10 health benefits of ginger that are supported by scientific research.
