1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon lemon juice

½ tablespoon tahini

½ tablespoon water

½ garlic clove, minced

¼ teaspoon ground turmeric

Sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 ounces soba noodles

1/8 teaspoon sesame oil

4 to 6 kale leaves, chopped

2 red radishes, thinly sliced

½ medium carrot, peeled into ribbons (using a regular vegetable peeler)

3 ounces shelled edamame

½ teaspoon sesame seeds

¼ cup microgreens

Tamari, for serving


1| In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, water, garlic, turmeric, and a generous pinch each of salt and pepper. Set aside.

2| Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Cook the soba noodles until al dente, following package directions. Drain and rinse under cold water, separating noodles with your hands. In a bowl, toss noodles with sesame oil; set aside.

3| Fill the same pot with an inch or two of water and place a steamer basket inside. Bring to a boil, then add the kale and a pinch of salt. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and steam until tender but still bright green, about 5 minutes.

4| Top noodles with kale, radishes, carrot ribbons, and edamame. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon sauce and top with sesame seeds and microgreens. Serve with remaining sauce and tamari.
