Soba Noodles with Veggies & Edamame Beans

This dish is so simple to make once you have the vegetables chopped up and dressing prepared. This dish is vegan and dairy free which will make a great Meatless Monday option. The edamame beans are a great source of complete protein but you can always swap this for your preferred source of protein.
