Oh-So-Simple Sesame Ginger Soba Noodles

Canoodle the Noodle

Busy weeknights can make planning a dinner the whole family will enjoy a struggle—until now! Our simple sesame ginger soba noodles are the perfect one-pot meal for families on the move. They’re ready in just 10 minutes and can be made hot or cold for a dish that’s a winner all year long!

The secret is in the Asian-inspired sauce that comes together quickly and tastes amazing over protein-packed soba noodles, a great alternative to your favorite pasta. (Hint: Authentic soba noodles are made from 100 percent buckwheat flour, so avoid brands that add another type of flour, including white and wheat).

Soba noodles are also a good source of fiber, thiamine (also known as vitamin B1) and manganese. Topped with your favorite veggies, this is a nutritious meal you’ll want to add to your weekly lineup!

  • 8 ounce package soba noodles
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce (or tamari)

  • Your favorite vegetables (we used peppers, sugar snap peas and broccoli)


  1. Prepare sauce by combining soy sauce, sesame oil, Sriracha, rice wine vinegar, agave, toasted sesame seeds, garlic, ground ginger and half of the green onions in a bowl. Whisk together and set aside.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook soba noodles according to package instructions.
