Hey Beautiful!

Hope you’re having a great day so far! Last night I made something yummy and I wanted to share the recipe with you! You may have seen it in my recent vlog (click the word vlog to view the video, skip to 8:30 for the recipe), but I thought I’d making it easier by listing everything out here. You can use the vegetables that I did, or you can remove some, or add some different ones, as you like!

Main ingredients:

  • 1 package of soba noodles
  • about a cup and a half of clean & thinly sliced red, orange & yellow peppers (you can just use one colour if you want)
  • 1 cup of mushrooms (any you like- I chose oyster mushrooms) broken into small pieces
  • 1 cup of kabocha or butternut squash (quite thinly sliced into pieces)
  • 1 small carrot or half a large carrot peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup of snap peas (clean with the two ends cut off- unless you like to eat this part!)
  • 1/4 cup of thinly chopped green onions

 

Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 2 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1.5 tbsp of peanut butter (natural if you have it!)
  • 1 tsp of sesame oil
  • 1/2 a lime squeezed (or lemon if you prefer)
  • 1/2 tsp finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 tbsp of coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic paste
  • sprinkle of pepper

Toppings:

  • thinly sliced green onion
  • seaweed (optional)
  • sesame seeds

2. precook the pumpkin slightly in boiling water for about 3 minutes then remove from water and place in a bowl (don’t make it too soft)

3. Boil some water and cook the soba noodles as directed on package (about 6 minutes)

4. while the soba noodles are cooking, add the peppers, carrots, mushrooms, and snap peas to a frying pan and fry them with a little bit of water, until they are cooked slightly soft but still have that crunch to them. (about 5 minutes)

5. Add the cooked pumpkin to the rest of the vegetables

6. when the soba noodles are done cooking, remove them from the pot, strain the water and run them under cold water. Keep the cold water running ***this is important or the noodles will stick together and become mush***

7. When the vegetables are done cooking, add the soba noodles to the pan of vegetables, then add all of the sauce, and mix well together

8. Add the green onion

9. Mix together

10. remove from the heat and add some to a bowl

11. top with spring onion, seaweed, and sesame seeds (you can use all of these or some of these or none of these!)
