Ingredients

  • Soba Noodles 80g
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup oyster mushrooms (or any other kind of mushroom) 
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce (or tamari - gluten free)
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger (optional) or two pieces of fresh ginger 
  • Fresh Parsley
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil or Sesame Oil
  • Black pepper 
  • Cayenne pepper 
  • Lemon 

Method for the noodles,

  1. In a pot, place cold water with a dash of salt and bring to boil
  2. Once the water is boiling, add in your soba noodles for 6 minutes exactly (that's for my organic Lima brand) 
  3. CAREFUL! when you place the soba noodles, usually a white foam will form and build up. You need to blow on it continuously to prevent it from spilling everywhere. Keep a good eye on your pot, don't just throw in your soba noodles and leave them. 
  4. At 6 minutes precisely, rid the pasta of the water in the pot, and place the pasta/noodles back in the pot. 
  5. NOTE: you could substitute the soba noodles for rice noodles, which instead you dip in cold water on the side for 10minutes as you bring your water to boil, and then once the water in boiling you add the rice noodles for 5 minutes. 

Ingredients for the mushrooms

  • 1 cup of white mushrooms 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 white onion
  • 2 cloves garlic 
  • 2 tbsp tamari (or soy sauce - tamari is gluten free soy sauce)
  • Pinch of White pepper 
  • Pinch of sea salt 
  • Lemon 
  • 1/2 tbsp Olive Oil or Sesame Oil 

Method for the mushrooms, 

  1. Chop your onion and garlic into small pieces, and prepare 2 pieces of fresh ginger
  2. In a non-stick pan, place on high heat with a touch of olive oil to start
  3. Once the pan/olive oil is hot, place in your white onion and garlic with a touch of salt and white pepper 
  4. Let them sweat for about 3minutes, then add in your mushrooms an fresh ginger, and mix well 
  5. You can reduce the heat to avoid the mushrooms burning, but you want them to color a bit (without being burnt)
  6. After 3 minutes or so, add in your 2 tbsp or soy sauce or Tamari which is gluten-free soy sauce 
  7. Mix well and let it sit for 3-5 minutes and once your mushrooms look like they'll melt in your mouth and have well absorbed the tamari sauce, you are good to go! Add 1/2 tbsp of olive oil or sesame oil, a touch of lemon juice, chopped parsley and boom!
