Saturday Stirrings ~ Soba Bowl

Posted by Carol on August 23, 2008

Ok, kids, this is another Rachael Ray recipe. I was going to say it is delicious, but then I thought, why would I post a recipe that I didn’t think was delicious?  To say so is kind of redundant.  (but it is good)  It is also very healthy, especially if you use veggie or fat free chicken stock.

Soba Bowl

  • 1 pound whole wheat spaghetti
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil, plus some for drizzling
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 large cloves garlic chopped
  • 3 handfuls store bought shredded carrots
  • 10 shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 large zucchini or 2 small, cut into half moons and sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 large bok choy (Chinese cabbage) cored and chopped
  • 6 cups fat free chicken or veggie stock
  • 1 cup fresh bean sprouts, optional
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tbsp chili powder
  • Cayenne pepper, a pinch
  • Tamari (dark soy sauce)

Cook spaghetti according to package directions.  Drain and toss with a little bit of vegetable oil.

While spaghetti is cooking, place a large soup pot over medium high heat and add about 2 tbsps vegetable oil to bottom of pan.  Add the onion, garlic, and shredded carrots and cook until the onions start to get tender, about 4-5 minutes.

Add the mushrooms, zucchini, and bok choy and cook for another 2-3 minutes.  Add stock, bring to a bubble, then simmer for 5 minutes.  Add the bean sprouts at the last minute.

In a small bowl, combine the toasted sesame seeds, ground coriander, chili powder and cayenne pepper and reserve for garnishing the soup.

To serve, place some of the spaghetti in a soup bowl and season it with a couple of splashes of tamari.  Ladle the veggies and soup over the noodles.  Sprinkle the sesame mixture on top and serve. (4 servings)

    I haven’t had soba in a LONG time! Yum!

    I understand what you mean – I don’t like to share a recipe that isn’t delicious. But I like to say how good it was too!

    Have a great weekend, Carol!
