So anyway, I promised in my last post to write about the soba noodles that I made with the Miso Steak, using the same dressing. I loved the way the dressing coated the noodles and gave a ton of flavor to the mushrooms and snap peas. The miso and ginger also mellowed out a bit when cooked as opposed to the tangy flavors of the salad. The two dishes go great together or this noodle dish would also work on its own or with some shrimp tossed in with the stir-fried vegetables. Soba noodles can be found in the Asian section of most supermarkets but any pasta would work. I love the nutty taste of buckwheat in the soba noodles and they only take about 3-4 minutes to cook, which is always appreciated.
Miso Soba Noodles
- 8 oz soba noodles
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 4-6 oz assorted mushrooms, sliced
- 8 oz (or about 2 cups) snap peas, trimmed
- 6-8 tbsp miso dressing
- 1/2 cup water, from pasta pot
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Saute the mushrooms until they begin to brown, about 5-8 minutes.
Add the snap peas and 3 tbsp miso dressing.
Pour in about 1/3 cup pasta water and stir to combine.
Cook the vegetables until the snap peas are crisp tender, about 10 minutes. Add more water if the pan becomes dry.
Toss the noodles in with the vegetables, adding more dressing to coat the noodles.
Remove from heat as soon as everything is combined and warmed through.
