Spicy Shitake Mushrooms and Edamame Soba Bowl - Vegetarian Recipe
3 tablespoons cup soy sauce or Tamari
2-3 teaspoons hot-chili sauce (like Sambal or Sriracha)
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1 clove minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
2 inches fresh ginger, minced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
10 oz fresh shitake mushrooms (any mushroom would work)
2 cups cabbage, sliced
1 cup red onion, sliced
1 package soba noodles
2 carrots cut into matchsticks, about 2 cups
2 cups frozen shelled edamame
Step 1: To make the sauce put all the ingredients in a medium sized bowl and whisk to combine. Let it rest a couple minutes so the brown sugar has time to dissolve. Meanwhile, chop the vegetables and heat a pot of water to boiling for the soba.
Step 3: Once the water reaches a boiling, drop the soba noodles and edamame into the water. Cook according to the noodles directions until al dente, about 8 minutes. Then drain and rinse the soba noodles and edamame under cool water. Toss the noodles with the remaining sauce. Then put the stir fried vegetables on top. Garnish with cilantro and crushed peanuts. For a little extra protein serve with a fried egg on top.
Serve this dish hot for dinner and take the leftovers to eat cold for lunch the second.
