  • 1 (3.75 ounce) package bean threads (cellophane noodles)
  • 2 cups frozen sweet soybeans (edamame), thawed
  • 2 cups broccoli florets, cut up or sliced
  • ¾ cup chopped red sweet pepper (1 medium)
  • ¼ cup finely chopped shallots
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1½ teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • ⅛ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • ¼ cup lightly salted peanuts, chopped
  • Lime wedges (optional)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a large glass bowl combine bean threads and thawed edamame; pour enough boiling water over to cover completely. Cover and let stand 15 to 20 minutes or until edamame is tender. Drain well; rinse with cold water and drain again. Snip noodles five or six times. Return noodles and edamame to the bowl. Add broccoli, sweet pepper, and shallot to the noodles; toss together.
  2. For dressing, place peanut butter in a small, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on 100% power (high) about 40 seconds or until melted. Whisk in soy sauce, vinegar, honey, ginger and crushed red pepper. Pour dressing over noodle mixture; toss to combine.
  3. Divide among four serving plates or bowls. Sprinkle with peanuts. If desired, squeeze lime wedges over all.
