Spicy Tahini Stir Fry Recipe


  • 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

Sauce Ingredients

  • 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


  • 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

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