Soba Noodles and Stir Fry Teriyaki Veggies

Although soba is traditionally a cold noodle dish, I thought I'd jazz it up and serve it hot with stir-fried teriyaki vegetables.

Soba is one of the healthier noodles, since (high quality) soba is made from mostly buckwheat flour, which has more fiber than the usual Italian pasta. Look for soba packages with "buckwheat" or "buckwheat flour" as the first ingredient.

Cook soba in boiling water for about 6 minutes, drain and keep warm.

While cooking the soba, saute/fry veggies in a hot wok pan with less than 1 TB olive and sesame oils, shaking frequently:

asparagus spears
chopped mushrooms
red onion slices

Once the veggies start to brown, sprinkle black pepper, then add teriyaki sauce (either use premade or make your own- it is easy!). Stir and keep veggies cooking on medium high heat until onions start to carmelize in the sauce. Throw in sliced green/long onion at the very end of cooking, it should stay crunchy.

Serve veggies and excess sauce over hot soba noodles.
