Preparation

  1. Cook the soba noodles according to the package instructions. Drain the noodles and set aside.
  2. Combine all the sauce ingredients in a blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, sauté the kale, carrot, cabbage, edamame, bell pepper, and mushrooms in a small amount of water until slightly wilted and tender, about 8 minutes. Add the sauce to the vegetables and stir to mix.
  4. Serve the vegetables and sauce over the soba noodles, garnished with the sesame seeds.

Hoisin Sauce

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until everything is well incorporated. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Tips

  • I love soba noodles for their strongly nutty flavor, but you can use any type of whole-grain pasta in this recipe.
  • You can also use a blender for the Hoisin Sauce, but since the amounts are so small it’s easier to use a hand whisk.
