Stir Fried Soba Noodles with Ginger Soy Dressing

Are you a big fan of delicious meals that take only minutes to throw together? And what about if they’re also healthy and gluten free? Ya, I’m kinda a big fan of that, too.

Stir Fried Soba Noodles with Ginger Soy Dressing

These noodles are seriously easy to put together and will be a major crowd pleaser. Switch up the veggies so it will be full of your favourites or add a little chicken or pulled pork to make it a hearty meal.

They also reheat great. Just throw them in a pan with a little bit of water and reheat them over medium heat.  I ate the leftovers for breakfast. I sometimes wonder if I’m the only person who would rather eat left over dinner for breakfast rather than pancakes. Does that make any sense? I think it just means that these noodles are freakin’ delicious. :)

Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 4 bundles soba noodles
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, cut into ⅓ inch wide strips
  • 1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • Oil for sautéing
Sauce:
  • 4 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, grated with a microplane or very finely minced
  • 1 ½ inch piece ginger, peeled and grated
  • Sriracha to taste
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons prawn stock
Instructions
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add soba noodles and cook for a little over half the recommended time. You will want them to be firm and a little undercooked as they will cook more in the frying pan.
  2. Combine all sauce ingredients, stir and set aside.
  3. In a large frying pan, heat a small amount of oil over high heat. Add peppers and onions at the same time and stir fry for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Add partially cooked noodles and sauce to the frying pan with the peppers and toss to coat. Add a splash of water if necessary. Return to heat and toss gently till noodles have been reheated and are fully cooked. Remove from heat.
  5. Gently mix in grated carrot and cilantro.
  6. Enjoy!
Notes
There is a lot of flexibility with this recipe. Add some of your favourite veggies to the mix. Toss it with prawns, chicken or even some pulled pork. Top it with a soft boiled egg, some toasted nuts or sesame seeds. Either way it will be delicious! *If eating gluten free is important to you, make sure you read the ingredients on the soba noodle package carefully as some contain wheat flour. Only buy brands that contain only buckwheat flour.

I have been obsessed with Soba noodles ever since I ate them in Japan, but I can’t find them anywhere! Where do you buy them?

Hi Kaitie,

I get them at the little Asian market near my place. I’ve also bought them from some bigger Asian grocery stores. If you don’t have any Asian markets or grocery stores near you you might want to try online. :)

I love noodle salads. You can add pretty much whatever ingredients you want. Question though. Have you been able to find gluten free hoisin sauce? I’ve used my fair share of gluten free Asian sauces, but haven’t been able to find hoisin.

Love the blog Kristen

Hi Matt,

It is definitely not easy to find! Lee Kum Kee (the company that makes all sorts of Asian sauces) does have one that is gluten free. If you live in The States I’ve heard that Premier Japan makes one that is quite good. I haven’t seen them for sale here in Canada though.

I found this meal on Pinterest and I am so glad I did! I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious!!! It was restaurant quality…full of flavor and beautiful on our plates. It wasn’t too hard to make, although it did take me longer than 10 minutes to prep. I highly recommend making this for dinner sometime soon. This recipe is a keeper!!! Thanks!!
