Optional Toppings

  • green onions, sliced
  1. Boil noodles according to the instructions on the package.
  2. In a sauté pan, warm 1 tablespoon of water over medium heat. Add diced onion and sauté until translucent, adding more water as needed to prevent onions from sticking. Add zucchini and carrots. Cook until vegetables are tender.
  3. While vegetables cook, prepare sauce. In a bowl, combine all sauce ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  4. When vegetables are tender, add cooked pasta, edamame, and sauce to the skillet with the vegetables. Toss and cook over low heat until all ingredients are hot. Season to taste.
  5. Top with optional crushed peanuts, sliced green onions, and crushed red pepper flakes.
