  • 8 ounces dried soba noodles be sure to check the label for 100% buckwheat for a gluten free diet
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 medium carrot julienne very thinly
  • 1-2 cups sugar snap peas
  • 1 cup red cabbage finely shredded
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • 3-1/2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar or 1 medium lime juiced
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar or honey
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha or chili garlic sauce optional

Garnishes (optional):

  • toasted sesame seeds
  • green onions thinly sliced
  • fresh cilantro chopped


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, cook the noodles according to package instructions or until just tender, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes. Drain the noodles and rinse under cold water.

  2. Whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl.

  3. In a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat with some oil, add the ginger and garlic and stir until fragrant, about 10 seconds.

  4. Add the mushrooms, snap peas, cabbage and carrots and continue to stir-fry for about 3-4 minutes. We want the vegetables to remain slightly crunchy.

  5. Pour in the sauce and mix together. Toss in the noodles and using tongs, coat the noodles with the sauce. Toss in the sesame seeds.

  6. Serve and top with green onions and fresh cilantro if desired.
