Soba noodle soup

I usually try and put a lot of effort into the meals I cook most nights. But occasionally I come home from work so tired that I’m in no mood to cook so I have to come up with dinner ideas that can be done in no time.

I made this soba noodle soup with whatever I could find in my pantry and fridge and it turned out so good! I stir fried the veggies really quick in some sesame seed oil and added vegetable stock and soy sauce, poured everything over the cooked noodles and that’s it! I had a delicious, fresh and healthy meal in just 15 minutes.

I think this soup would also work well with some silken tofu, I just didn’t have any in the fridge at the time I made it.



  • 1 carrot julienned
  • 6 snow peas julienned
  • 6 mushrooms sliced
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 1/4 onion finely sliced
  • 1 small chilli finely sliced
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seed oil
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 90g soba noodles
  • 1 spring onion finely sliced
  • Prep time: 5 min
  • Cooking time: 10 min
  • Servings: 1
  • Difficulty: easy


Chop all the vegetables.

Cook the soba noodles according to the instructions on the package (mine only took 4 minutes). Drain and set aside.

Heat the oil in a wok, add all the vegetables and stir fry for 5 minutes. Add the soy sauce, vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Remove from heat.

Place the cooked soba noodles on a deep plate or bowl. Ladle the cooked vegetables and hot liquid and top with the sliced spring onion.
