The Edamame Pesto makes this an outstanding but simple dish to prepare.
Bring large pot of water to boil. Add soba noodles and cook for 4-5 minutes. When noodles are ready, reserve one cup of the noodle water for thinning pesto, then pour remaining liquid and noodles into colander. Rinse with cold water and drain. Put pesto in large bowl and add noodles and cabbage. Toss together until well blended. Use noodle water to thin if needed.
Put the parsley, garlic, edamame, red pepper flakes, almonds and salt in food processor and pulse for 30 seconds. Add in the lime juice, olive oil, and water and process until smooth. Add more water if mixture is too thick.
Pesto can be used to add flavor to pastas, sandwiches, soups or salads.
