  • 4 oz udon noodles
  • 1 1/2 cups shelled edamame
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp lower sodium soy sauce
  • 4 tsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp lime zest
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 medium yellow or red bell pepper sliced
  • 3 medium green onions sliced
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds or crushed peanuts


  • Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook the noodles for 10 to 12 minutes or until tender. Before draining, reserve ½ cup of the cooking water and set aside. Drain noodles.
  • Cook edamame in the microwave according to package directions.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, lime zest, sesame oil, black pepper, and reserved cooking water.
  • Toss the noodles with the sauce, cooked edamame, bell pepper, and green onions. Sprinkle sesame seeds or crushed peanuts on top and serve.


Chef’s Notes:
  • If preferred, lightly sauté the bell pepper in a small amount of oil before adding to the noodles.
  • This dish could be eaten at room temperature or even cold.
Mix It Up: Add any combination of vegetables you want or have on hand to the noodles. You could also mix in some tofu or tempeh. Add chicken if you are looking for a non-vegetarian main dish.
Kid-Friendly: Are your kids not as adventurous with their noodles? Try using a favorite whole wheat spaghetti instead of udon.
