Happy Sunday!!

I hope you had a fantastic weekend. Mine was packed full of chores and errands. But today! I’m super excited because I get to see one of my best friends. I haven’t seen her since the weekend before the lockdown last March when we got together to celebrate my birthday.

But phone calls and texts are just NOT the same as seeing each other in person. And since we’ve both have been vaccinated for months now and cases have gone down, we figured that we could get together and catch up over…. you guessed it, food.

So that’s what I’ll be up to today.

In the mean time, I’m leaving you with soba noodle vegetable stir fry.

If I were to pick rice or noodles for dinner, it’ll most likely end up being noodles. I love the various textures and the versatility of it. There are so many different types of noodles and they can be served in so many ways. My boyfriend will disagree with me. He’ll almost always be on team rice. lol. What would you prefer?

For this dish, I used soba noodle because it’s easy to cook and I had it on hand. But you can easily substitute other noodles. Just cook them according to the directions on the packaging.

In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, oyster sauce, dark soy sauce, sugar, and fish sauce. Note: dark soy sauce and regular soy sauce are different. Dark soy sauce is thicker and sweeter than regular soy sauce and gives the noodles their color.

In a medium sized skillet, add a little bit of oil and allow it to heat for a minute. Once the oil has heated, add garlic. Cook until the garlic becomes golden brown and aromatic. Add onions and cook until the onions have softened.

Now add mushrooms and chopped cabbage. Cook for a few minutes until they become tender.

Now, add the cooked soba noodles and fresh basil into the skillet. Toss until combined.

Drizzle the mixed sauce over the noodles to taste. You don’t have to use all the sauce. It could be a little too salty if you use all of it. Toss until the noodles are coated with the sauce.

Serve the soba noodle vegetable stir fry warm topped with sliced chili peppers for extra heat if desired.

Enjoy!!
