Ingredients

  • 8 oz soba (aka buckwheat) noodles or 
whole-grain rotini pasta
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 
1-inch-long thin strips
  • 6 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 lb fresh lump crabmeat
  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder
  • 1 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 8 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped

Preparation

  1. Cook noodles according to package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta cooking water, drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil on medium. Add pepper, scallions and garlic. Sauté, stirring occasionally, until pepper softens, about 5 minutes. Add crab and toss to combine.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, add arrowroot and reserved pasta cooking water. Whisk with a fork, gradually adding soy sauce and lime juice until well blended. Add mixture to skillet, stirring constantly until sauce is slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Add spinach and cover to steam, about 3 minutes. Pour entire mixture over top of noodles, sprinkle with basil and mint and toss to combine.
