- 4 bundles of soba noodles
- 1 teaspoon grape seed oil
- 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
- 4 tablespoons hoisin sauce (gluten-free, if needed)
- 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
- 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.
- Combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
- In a large frying pan, heat the oil over high heat. Add peppers and onions at the same time and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Add the partially cooked soba 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.
- Gently mix in grated carrot and cilantro.
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, or top it with a soft boiled egg, some toasted nuts or sesame seeds. Any way you make it 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 or sub rice noodles.
