Noodles

1 Pound of 100% buckwheat soba

1 zucchini squash- spirulized ( you will need a spirulizer for this!

1/4 red pepper, minced or small dice

Salad Greens

I used red leaf lettuce in chiffonade or thinly sliced

toss with lemon juice

1 t hot sesame oil

salt & pepper

Set aside in serving bowl

Soba Sauce

I make a lot of this and have it in the fridge ready to go at ALL TIMES. Perfect quick toss for noodles or for dipping.

1/2c tamari

1/4c mirin

1″ piece of fresh ginger, grated or thinly sliced

1 clove garlic, smashed and minced

2t hot sesame oil

1T water- if needed

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the soba and cook until al dente. Rinse well with fresh water, then drain and set aside.

Spirulize the squash, salt with about 1/2t pink salt and set in a colander in the sink for several minutes to soften.

In a large bowl, toss the cooled buckwheat noodles with the zucchini noodles and add your preference of Soba Sauce (to taste).

In a serving bowl, add the shredded greens (and any other fresh veggies you would like to your noodle bowl!) and the layer on a serving of dressed noodles. Top with the minced red pepper and serve warm or cold. FRICKEN DELICIOUS.
