Soba noodles with vegetables, tofu and miso broth

Inspired by Singing Horse's delicious udon noodles in peanut butter sauce.

I did not have any peanut butter on hand, and the effect on my perpetual dieting had to be considered. So this is what I did.

– 1 tbsp sesame oil
– 6-7 baby bella mushrooms, chopped
– 8 baby bok choy, chopped into bite-sized pieces
– 1 big piece daikon, chopped into bite-sized pieces
– 1 inch piece ginger, minced
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 tbsp tamari
– 2 tbsp rice vingear
– 1 bunch soba noodles, cooked, rinsed in cold water, drained
– 2 tbsp yellow miso
– 1/2 cup warm water
– 1 cup mung sprouts
– a handful of coriander and mint leaves, shredded
– 1 block tofu, cubed and browned on the griddle (with a little cooking spray/sesame oil)
– 1 tbsp black sesame seeds, toasted
– 1 tbsp lime juice

– Heat oil in a wok. Sautee ginger, garlic, mushrooms, bok choy, daikon.
– Add tamari, vinegar and water. Wait until the vegetables are cooked, but still somewhat crisp.
– Add soba noodles, tofu and half the sprouts, along with half the mint and coriander. Mix well.
– Turn off the heat. Remove a ladleful of broth, dissolve the miso, and add it back. Stir to coat everything.
– Mix together sprouts, remaining herbs and lime juice for garnish. Serve.

    Another delicious sounding and looking meal!

    Thank you..I finally went ahead and used daikon, inspired by you. It was great. Hubby gave it four stars, and he doesn't really like noodles and mushrooms.

  4. It looks and sounds wonderful – a lot of ingredients! I start to run in the other direction once the number of ingredients goes over 6 — but that looks so good i may try.

    Some of the ingredients are definitely window dressing and can be done away with..I think you'll enjoy it, though, its a fresh, light recipe, yet great for cold weather!
