Gingery Soba Noodles with Edamame and Tomatoes

  • Yield: 4 servings

Roasting your own tomatoes makes your house smell divine, but using one 14-ounce can fire-roasted tomatoes saves time and is good, too.


1pound plum tomatoes, cored and cut into 4 wedges each
2tablespoons olive oil, divided
1cup chopped yellow onion
2tablespoons peeled minced gingerroot
1tablespoon fresh minced garlic
2tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1/4cup vegetable broth or chicken broth
1-- (7-ounce) package buckwheat noodles (soba) (or 8 ounces dry uncooked whole wheat pasta )
1cup shelled cooked edamame
3tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place tomatoes on a 15 x 10-inch baking sheet. Drizzle tomato wedges with the olive oil; toss to coat. Spread tomatoes in an even layer on prepared baking sheet. Roast about 30 minutes, turning once. Cool and chop roughly; transfer tomatoes and their juices to a bowl; set aside.
  3. Heat remaining tablespoon olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat.  Add onion and sauté for 6 minutes.  Add ginger and sauté one minute longer. Add garlic and sauté about 1 minute.  Do not brown garlic.
  4. Add tomatoes, soy sauce and broth to pan; bring mixture to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for about 3 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare soba according to package directions and drain. Quickly add noodles and edamame, tossing gently to combine.  Divide between serving plates. Serve hot. Garnished with cilantro.
