Introduction

Warning: must love garlic.

This dish serves 1, but can easily be modified to serve more.

Some Soba noodles are gluten-free (check package). They are made from buckwheat and metabolize much more slowly than most carbohydrates, which makes them ideal for diabetics and health-conscious individuals. You can pick them up at your local japanese market or health food store.

If you don't have any chicken leftovers on hand, Marinate chicken breast tenderloins or sliced breasts in some sesame oil, chopped up garlic, sake or rice vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper for 4-24 hours. Cook in nonstick skillet.. adding a bit of soy sauce and sake/wine halfway through the cooking.

This sauce can be used on any noodles with just about any vegetables you like. Enjoy :)

Ingredients

    Sauce:
    4 cloves of garlic
    1 tsp sesame oil
    1 tsp vegetable/olive oil
    1 tbsp mirin, sake, or rice wine vinegar
    1 tbsp sugar
    1 tbsp dark soy sauce (tamari)
    salt and pepper to taste

    Other Ingredients:
    1 tube of Soba Noodles (buckwheat noodles, about 2 oz)
    1/4 cup shredded red cabbage
    1/4 cup shredded carrots
    1/4 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper
    1/4 cup chopped red onion
    1 green onion, chopped
    1/2 cooked chicken breast (leftovers are fine!) sliced
    1/2 tbsp sesame seeds to sprinkle

Tips

Since making this recipe I've transitioned to a paleo/primal diet.. and this recipe works equally well with zucchini noodles and shredded veggies.


Directions

1. Cook soba noodles according to package (make sure the water is boiling before you add them!). Strain, rinse with cold water, and set aside.
2. Heat the oils in a sauce pan.
3. Put the garlic in and cook until dark yellow, not brown (use medium-low heat if you're afraid you'll burn it).
4. Add sugar, stir.
5. Add the rest of the sauce ingredients (sake, soy sauces, salt and pepper if desired), stir until combined.
6. Leave on medium heat to thicken a bit, about 3 min (bubbling is normal).
7. Add cooked chicken, onion, cabbage, peppers, and carrots (I add the carrots and peppers much later than the others, because I like them crunchy!). Coat all ingredients in sauce, and cook until the chicken is warm and the veggies are cooked to your liking.
8. Pour veggie mixture and sauce over soba noodles and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Enjoy!

    This was delicious! I used whole wheat noodles and mixed them in the veggies and sauce at the end. Came out like lo mein at the restaurant. Yummy! - 8/30/10

    Incredible.

    The garlic isn't hard and bitter, but very soft and adds great flavour to this dish. Big portion and lots of flavour!
