They are light and easy to make! You can use soba noodles or thin spaghetti, whichever you prefer!

I love cooking and baking with Florida orange juice. Did you know it was so easy to cook with? (If you missed out my orange tres leches cake…you need to check it out!)

Prep the veggies.

Boil the noodles and then parboil the veggies.

I like these noodles cold, so refrigerate the noodles and the vegetables.

What I love about this dish is that you can make it ahead! If you do make it ahead, don’t add the sauce until you’re ready to serve.

I can’t wait for you to make this…I know you’ll love it!!!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound soba noodles or thin spaghetti, cooked al dente according to package instructions
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced at an angle
  • 1 broccoli head, cut into bite-sized florets
  • 1 red pepper, sliced and then cut in thirds
  • 1/2 cup snap peas
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sriracha
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • sesame seed, to garnish

Directions:

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Remove pasta with tongs and place in a medium sized mixing bowl. Allow it to cool on the counter for a few minutes and then put it in the refrigerator.
  2. Add broccoli to boiling water and cook for one minute. Remove with a slotted spoon. Rinse carefully with cold water (to stop the cooking). Add carrots and cook for about four minutes. Remove with a slotted and rinse carefully with cold water. Do the same for the snap peas, cook for just one minute.
  3. Place the cooked vegetables in the refrigerator while you prepare the sauce.
  4. Add minced garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce and sriracha to a small bowl. Whisk together and then add orange juice. Whisk together.
  5. Take pasta and vegetables and mix together. Add orange sesame sauce and mix together. Garnish with green onions and sesame seed.

Note: If you’re making it a day ahead, keep the sauce separated from the noodles and veggies until you’re ready to serve!
