After a day indulging in chocolate and other Valentine's treats, perhaps you're looking for a dinner that is bright, lively, energizing, and 'clean'.
These Sesame Lime Soba Noodles are just what this vegan mama ordered!

(Well, I wish I could order them - today of all days... I'll spare you the mama details.)
Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour, but are sometimes combined with other flours like kamut , or wheat. The noodles are tender and not gummy, and usually very digestible. Here, they are tossed with a quick saute of shiitake mushrooms and fresh snow peas in a light, Asian-inspired sauce with a good dose of sprightly, fresh lime juice.
It is an easy meal to prepare, will liven up your palate, and give you a boost - at a time of the year when we really need it.
