Soba Noodle Vegetable Stir-Fry

A meal with no meat? I know, I was a little surprised with myself too. But as much of a carnivore as I am, I like to experiment with vegetarian dishes every now and again in order to make sure that I have options in my repertoire. Whenever I do have a meatless meal, I am not satisfied unless there is something of substance on the plate that will fill me up such as beans, potatoes, pasta, or some grain. Then I (almost) don't even miss the meat...almost.

  • buckwheat soba noodles
  • sesame oil
  • grated ginger
  • carrots
  • chili flakes
  • snow peas
  • enoki mushrooms
  • black bean garlic paste
  • soy sauce
  • sriracha sauce
  • black sesame seeds

Procedure: Cook the soba noodles according the instructions on the package, and I also threw a few chunks of ginger in the water to add a little extra flavor. Start by sauteing the carrots in the sesame oil with chili flakes and grated ginger. Add the snow peas after a couple of minutes. Turn off the heat and add the mushrooms at the very last minuted or else they will essentially disintegrate. Add in a couple spoonfuls of the black bean garlic paste, a few dashes each of soy sauce and sriracha, and toss in your freshly cooked pasta. As always, taste and adjust the seasoning. Serve with a sprinkling of black sesame seeds as a garnish.
