Hey Friends!

How has your week been? Mine has been good, but still nursing this awful cough thats plagued me the last two weeks. I am drinking copious amounts of tea, that’s for sure.

This weeks recipe is super delicious, super easy and actually just something I threw together by cleaning out my kitchen. I had random veggies that needed to be eaten, and some soba noodles in the pantry. So I made my clean out the kitchen soba noodles! Here is the recipe.

Clean out your Kitchen Soba Noodles

Makes 2 servings


1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped long green beans
1/2 cup chopped oyster mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup firm tofu cut into cubes
left over broccoli stems
1/2 cup chopped white onion
1 stem spring onion chopped
bunch of chopped cilantro
sesame seeds for garnish

For the sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 garlic cloves minced
1 tbsp chopped ginger
1 tsp chilli flakes
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp brown sugar


Prepare all the veggies and tofu before you begin. Boil the soba noodles according to packet instructions. Drain them and set aside. In a wok or pan,  fry the tofu in a little bit of sesame oil until browned, and set aside. Water sauté the onion until translucent then add the rest of the veggies and let them cook until soft, but still tender. Add in the tofu and the noodles, and then the sauce and let it all simmer for a couple of minutes until everything is combined. add the cilantro and sesame seeds as a final garnish. Serve hot. 

The most important thing about this recipe is that you can use whatever veggies you have on hand. Super quick and easy and so delicious. Soba noodles are high in fiber, and naturally gluten free because they are made with buckwheat. 

Hope you enjoy this weeks recipe. Let me know your version of clean out the kitchen soba noodles in the comments below. 🙂 

Stay Happy and Healthy!

      Hi Heather, thanks for your comment! yes absolutely, just use water instead! I do it all the time. For the tofu if you have a non stick pan just add a touch of salt to the pan and dry fry. Hope that helps! 🙂
