I’ve been craving soba noodles lately. Maybe an odd craving but I’m a big fan of noodles and soba noodles are one of my favorites. Healthy and delicious, the Japanese noodles are made from buckwheat and can be served either cold or hot. They are quick and easy to prepare and what’s best about them is that they are totally adaptable to whatever flavors you feel like using!
Ingredients (serves 2)
For the sauce:
150ml Tamari sauce
3 tbsp agave syrup
For the noodles:
200g soba noodles
1 small bunch of broccoli
200g baby spinach leaves
10g dried shiitake mushrooms
200ml hot water
2 cloves of garlic, minced
In a glass, mix tamari sauce with water and agave syrup. Set aside.
Soak shiitakes in hot water for 15 minutes.
Steam or cook broccoli florets until just tender, about 7 minutes. Drain.
Boil a large pot of water and cook soba noodles according to the packet instructions. Drain.
In a skillet, heat up olive oil, add garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. Add shiitakes and the sauce and mix. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the spinach leaves and broccoli and cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the soba noodles and enjoy!
