  • 3 tbsp gluten free soy sauce or tamari or coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp Rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Sesame oil
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp honey or maple syrup*
  • 1 tsp fish sauce**
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes


  • 8 oz soba noodles

Stir Fry Vegetables

  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tbsp ginger minced
  • 1 medium carrot julienned
  • 1 medium yellow/brown onion
  • 13-14 oz white button/champignon mushrooms
  • 2-3 tbsp soba noodles cooking water
  • Vegetable oil for cooking as needed


  • Sauce - whisk and combine all the sauce ingredients in a bowl or measuring cup. Set aside.
  • Soba noodles - Cook noodles as per packaging instructions. I usually add them to salted boiling water, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from water and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process. Add a little bit of vegetable oil and toss. Set aside.
  • Stir fry - Heat up a bit of vegetable oil in a wok or regular medium pan (high heat). Add onion, cook for few minutes and follow with ginger and garlic.
  • Fry for couple seconds until fragrant. Add mushrooms and carrot (a bit later, after few minutes). Stir fry in total about 3-5 minutes or until mushrooms become golden brown.
  • Reduce the heat to medium, stir in the noodles and pour over the sauce. Toss to combine and stir fry for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
  • Garnish with more sesame seeds, edamame (i simply thawed my frozen edamame until room temperature and added to the noodles later, alternatively you can add them together with carrot), fresh chili pieces (remove the seeds prior), chopped spring onion/scallions.



*Fish sauce - it gives a great umami taste, but if going for a vegan/vegetarian option then simply omit and use more soy sauce instead. 
**Honey/maple syrup - any plant-based sweet syrup will work, don't use honey if you're vegan.
