Yield: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

For the Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mushroom (or vegetable) broth
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

For the Stir Fry

  • 4 ounces dry soba noodles
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 lb sliced brown mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup sliced bell pepper
  • 3/4 cup shelled edamame beans (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 scallions, white and light green parts sliced into 1" pieces
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Prepare the sauce by whisking together the soy sauce, mushroom broth, rice vinegar, sriracha, and brown sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Cook the noodles al dente according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add the mushrooms in a single layer and brown for 1-2 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside.
  4. Add the broccoli to the pan and saute for 3-4 minutes, until tender-crisp. Add the bell peppers, shelled edamame, and scallion. Stir fry for another 1-2 minutes, until bell peppers have softened.

  1. I love soba noodles too, I think they’re underrated in Western cuisine. I’ll be making this dish with red pepper flakes, snap peas, and tofu – what do you think? Thank you for sharing, so excited to try it!
