A little Asian inspired, easy and refreshing. The soba noodles are a source of carbs that literally cook in less than 7 minutes ( “cellophane” noodles work great as well and are a bit lighter); the edamame is your protein. And plenty of veggies of course (I used carrots and cucumbers here, but you can be creative!). Make a big batch and you’ll have a great pack and go lunch for a few days. Also great as a light dinner or even a healthy snack.
