Noodles & vegetables

Cook the noodles as per the packet instructions, rinse in cold water, drain.

Bring the water and salt to the boil in a wide frying pan. Place the pak choi (cut side up) in the pan along with the mushrooms, cover and cook for approx. 5 mins. Rinse in cold water in a sieve, drain well.


To make the dressing, mix all the ingredients together well.

To serve & garnish

Briefly sauté the garlic in a frying pan, add 3 tsp of the dressing, continue to cook briefly. Add the shiitake mushrooms and continue to cook for approx. 2 mins. Reduce the heat. Add the noodles, the rest of the dressing, the pak choi and the onion greens, heat through and plate up. Sprinkle with the toasted buckwheat, serve immediately.

Good to know
Tip: Instead of toasted buckwheat, you can also top the soba noodles with toasted sesame seeds or gomasio.
Tip: You can also make your own gomasio by toasting sesame seeds, grinding them finely and mixing them with sea salt or Himalayan salt. Perfect for sprinkling over salads and salty dishes.
Tip: You can also toast a whole pack of buckwheat in one go and store it in an airtight jar. It makes a great topping for muesli, porridge, banana ice cream and salads, too.
