Walnut Miso Noodles
Sometimes we have to make something quick and painless for dinner. I just got a container of miso the other day (I was finally able to find it at Whole Foods - it was in the refrigerated section near the fake meats. Who knew?) so we decided to try the Walnut Miso Noodles on 101 Cookbooks. We opted for soba instead of whole wheat (next time, I wouldn't) and rinsed the noodles under cold water (finally, we follow the directions... for the wrong recipe - next time, I wouldn't). We used some sauteed swiss chard (with stems), edamame and toasted walnuts for some veg and crunch - pretty good choices.
The dressing was good. I would make this again, but have it warm instead, and with whole wheat noodles instead of soba. The easy substitution of veg makes this a great use-up-what's-in-the-fridge weeknight dish.
