Spicy Tahini Stir Fry Recipe

What You'll Need

8 oz soba noodles

1 bunch kale, stemmed and chopped

1 carrot, peeled and julienned

1 cup sliced red cabbage

1 cup frozen edamame, thawed

1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced

8 oz shiitake or other mushrooms, sliced

2 Tbsp sesame seeds, for garnish


¼ cup water

3 Tbsp tahini

¼ cup Hoisin Sauce

1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 Tbsp sriracha, or to taste

2 garlic cloves, peeled

1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger

¼ tsp ground turmeric

How to Make It

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.

Cooking Tips

I love soba noodles for their strongly nutty flavor, but you can use any type of whole-grain pasta in this recipe.
