Quick noodle lunch

When I’m too busy or lazy to cook anything, I make this meal – it’s healthy, fast, versatile, and pretty much as easy as boiling a pot of water. I dressed this up a bit by adding sauteed scallions on top of the cold noodles, and serving it with a garlic, sugar snap pea and shrimp stir fry.

To make the noodles:

  • soba noodles
  • rice vinegar
  • garlic powder
  • sesame oil
  • low sodium soy sauce

Boil a pot of water and add noodles. Cook until al dente (about 5-7 minutes). Drain immediately, and rinse with ice cold water. Add soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic powder, and sesame oil to taste. Toss and enjoy!

Other options: 

  • Stir fry peeled, deveined shrimp with garlic and sugar snap peas. Toss with noodles or serve on the side
  • Julienne carrots, toss with noodles.
  • Chop some snow peas, boil with noodles and mix together with noodles and sauces.
  • Top noodles with sauteed green onions and/or toasted sesame seeds before serving.
