Sweet and spicy, you can serve this dish hot or cold. Add shrimp, chicken or tofu to make it a meal.
INGREDIENTS:
For the Sauce:
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha (optional, adjust to your heat preference)
For the Noodle Stir Fry:
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil (or any cooking oil you prefer)
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, adjust to your heat preference)
  • 2 carrots julienned
  • 1 small green zucchini julienned
  • 1/2 red onion sliced very thin
  • 1 small red bell pepper sliced thin
  • 2 scallion stalks chopped finely, whites and greens divided
  • 6 oz dried organic soba noodles

Toppings:

  • 1/4 cup chopped cashews or peanuts
  • Scallion greens, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds

 

DIRECTIONS:

In a small bowl mix together the soy sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar, sriracha, sesame oil and cornstarch. Whisk until combined. Set aside.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the soba noodles and cook for 3 minutes (or one minute under directed cooking time), the noodles should be a bit under cooked. Rinse with cold water thoroughly, Drain and set aside.

First cook your veggies: Heat oil in a wok over medium high heat. Stir fry ginger and garlic (and optional pepper flakes) for about a minute or until golden. Add the scallion (whites only) carrot, red bell pepper and onion and stir fry for a few minutes until softened slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from wok and set aside. Next, add zucchini to wok and stir fry for 1 min on very high heat. Remove from pan and set aside with other veggies.

Next, Add sauce to the pan and swirl for 1 min until it begins to bubble. Now add the noodles and veggies in to the wok and toss to coat. Cook for 1-2 minutes on high heat allowing the sauce to coat everything. Taste and adjust the sweet/spicy ratio to your liking by adding more sriracha if needed.

Top with scallion greens, sesame seeds and chopped cashews, serve hot, cold or at room temp!
