Happy Valentine’s Day!
Whether you’re spending it with a special someone, or maybe a couple friends/family, I hope it’s positively smashing!
Today, while you are being overloaded across the blogosphere and your real life with chocolatey and sugary delights, I thought it might be nice to see a healthier option. Not for today of course, as I fully encourage the ultimate level of indulgences on this sweet day, but perhaps later this week when you’re hoping for a little food R&R ;).
I found these pink soba noodles a while ago at the local Uwajimaya, and thought they were too cute to pass up. I knew they’d come in handy! Valentine’s Day seems like a more than apt occasion, no?
This dish is, in my opinion, pretty unique. It’s slightly creamy, but not at all in a heavy way. The zing of lemon adds a refreshing note, and the watercress has a peppery bite. It tastes like something you would get served at a spa in between treatments. Basically, it is the perfect dish to detox with after consuming pounds of candy, cake, and chocolate!
