Vegan Asian Soba Noodle Bowl

Vegan Asian soba noodle bowl with pickled shitakes

I promised you a recipe featuring my pickled shiitakes and here it is.  Using a tablespoon or two of the reserved pickling liquid makes a great seasoning base for soba nouodles and I’ve paired the salty shitakes with sweet butternut squash and crunchy Brussels sprouts for texture.  I keep a jar of shiitakes in the refrigerator so I can whip this up in less than 30 minutes.  I hope you enjoy it if you give it a try, it’s my favorite weekday lunch!

Using the extra pickling liquid as a sauce for the noodles makes this a super flavorful meal without a lot of work.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butternut squash, cut into ¼-inch dice
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 cup Brussels sprouts
  • ½ cup pickled shitakes
  • 8 ounces soba noodles
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the butternut squash to the baking sheet, toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast until tender about 15 - 20 minutes.
  2. Cut the Brussels sprouts in half lengthwise and then finely shred them. Heat a teaspoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat and add the Brussels sprouts and cook for 2 to 3 minutes just until they begin to soften.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook noodles according to package instructions. Be careful not to overcook. Drain and toss with a tablespoon of the pickling liquid
  4. Divide the soba between two bowls and top with the squash, mushrooms and brussels sprouts. Garnish with the chives and sesame seeds and serve.
