8 oz soba noodles
1 c frozen shelled edamame
1 1/2 c shredded carrots
1 1/2 c thinly sliced green onion, diagonal
1/2 c chopped fresh mint
1 large orange
2 Tbsp white miso
3 Tbsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 tsp crushed red-pepper flakes
1/4 tsp salt
1. Fill a 6-quart saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add noodles and edamame and cook for 6 minutes.
2. Empty into a colander and rinse well with cold water. Drain and place in a serving bowl. Stir in carrots, scallion, and mint; toss gently and set aside.
3. Grate orange to produce a half teaspoon fine zest. Juice orange to produce 3 tablespoons liquid. Place zest and juice in a small bowl and whisk in remaining ingredients. Pour dressing over noodle mixture.
4. Toss gently and refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Serve cold or at room temperature.
