Soba Noodles with Kale

noodles1I eat soba noodles at least twice week.  I love soba noodles because they cook very quickly and they are healthy carbs.  Soba noodles are made of buckwheat which are naturally wheat and gluten free.  My favorite brand is King Soba because they make delicious combinations like sweet potato and buckwheat and brown rice and wakame.  I made this for dinner last night and it took me exactly 15 minutes to make.  I cooked the soba noodles in boiling water for 4 minutes.  While the noodles were cooking, I sautéed the shitake mushrooms, kale and tofu in toasted sesame oil.  After I drained the noodles, I tossed the noodles in a bowl with the kale, shitake mushrooms, and tofu.  I dressed it simply with sesame oil, tamari, salt and pepper.  Finally, I garnished with green onion.  The whole recipe happens to be gluten and dairy free as well which is perfect for vegans or for that one day you want to eat clean.  My philosophy on cooking is that it should be easy, delicious and healthy.
