While watching a Ed Hardy Tattoo documentary, I got a massive craving for some japanese cuisine. With barley any food left in the house, i found some miso soup, soba noodles, and some veggies, and decided to make a little asian meal for me and the man. Buckwheat is actually a fruit although sometimes categorized as grain. Since it is not technically a grain, it can be devoured by all you who happen to have celiac disease or are sensitive to wheat! So this is what i came up with...hope u enjoy this fast & easy, gluten-free and vegan noodle bowl! And remember in Japan, the louder you slurp, the better!
1/2 bag of Soba Noodles
1 Tbs sesame oil
1 cup shiitake mushrooms, sliced
2 small zucchini, sliced into 1/4 circles
1/2 onion, diced
2 tbs sesame seeds
1 tsp ginger powder
2 cloves garlic, diced
1/2 bunch of kale leaves, ripped into pieces
1-2 cups miso soup, depending on how soupy you want it
Cook soba noodles in boiling water for about 6 minutes or until soft. Make 1-2 cups of miso soup or instant miso soup. Heat sesame oil over med-high heat and add veggies and spices, but not the kale. Cook till onions are almost translucent and mushrooms are cooked, and stir in kale. Cook until kale is wilted. Place noodles in 2 bowls, add veggies and pour miso soup over the top. Grab some chopsticks & Devour!
