It doesn’t get much simpler than this Soba Noodle Stir Fry recipe! All you need is 30 minutes, soba noodles, vegetables, and a scrumptious sauce and you have a savory umami dish at your fingertips!

This recipe is packed with freshness and flavor all combined together in one dish!

You may be wondering what are Soba Noodles and what makes Soba Noodles different compared to regular noodles? Well, they are made from buckwheat flour which is LOADED with protein, so they have this wonderful nutty and earthy bite to them when cooked which is why I love them in both my Soba and Sweet Potato Noodle Bowls and this recipe.

Why we love this recipe

  • This recipe is not your average stir fry. Just like my Sesame Orange Tofu Stir Fry this recipe is fun and different and yet easy to throw together.
  • Freshness from vegetables that are packed into the recipe.
  • Similar to my Sichuan Tofu Bok Choy Stir Fry, this dish takes less than 30 minutes to make which is always a win!

Recipe Ingredients

Soba noodle stir fry ingredients.

Fresh veggies that are not only full of color, but also add a crunch to the dish.

Soba Noodles that are packed with protein since they are Buckwheat noodles.

Sriracha that adds a little kick to the sauce but doesn’t overpower it.

Variation FAQs

Can I use different vegetables in this Soba noodle stir-fry?

Of course! Add what you like and substitute what you don’t. Other vegetables I would recommend in this dish would be carrots, sugar snap peas, squash, or even zucchini!

Can I add a protein to this Soba noodle stir-fry?

Yes! I would recommend chicken, beef, shrimp, or tofu if you are wanting to add in a protein.

  1. 5 stars
    This is super tasty, and easy to make too! I’ve made a few different soba noodle stir fry recipes, and many of them aren’t all that exciting, but this one is full of flavor. We doubled the sauce and the noodles to have some leftovers, and added carrots because we had them on hand. Will definitely make this again!

  2. Sooooo tasty and easy to make! Very forgiving with diff veggies/vinegar.

    Will make many many times because it’s so quick to make!

  3. 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!
