More About This Recipe
When people think fast weeknight noodle dishes, many look for Italian recipes. Pasta with spaghetti sauce, macaroni and cheese, etc. But, there are so many fast Asian-style recipes that involve noodles! This spicy soba stir-fry dish is ridiculously fast to make and you can actually make large chunks of it in advance for an even faster preparation! Plus, did I mention that it’s delicious? Pretty much as good as any take-out noodle dish you could pick up! There are a few tricks to this recipe to make it really shine. First is the sauce! It’s not a complicated sauce but all of the ingredients are important, so I don’t recommend skipping any of them. You can mix it together in advance, but be sure to give it a whisk before you cook with it to make sure the cornstarch is distributed. As far as noodles go, you can technically use many different noodles for it. Rice noodles would work well, but I like soba if you can find it. They have a great texture and subtle nutty flavor that goes well with the other stir-fry stuff. The key to using them in a stir-fry like this is to cook them, then rinse them immediately with cold water to stop the cooking and toss them with a little sesame oil to keep them from sticking. Otherwise you’ll have a big glob of noodles to deal with! Thaw your Cascadian Farm™ Chinese-Style Stirfry Blend veggies on low in the microwave and drain off as much liquid as possible. Then add them to a wok or skillet with some oil. Cook for just a few minutes and then add in the noodles and sauce. Warm everything through and let the sauce thicken a bit, and you’re ready to eat. Even if you’re crunched for time, this is a noodle dish you should try!
