This is a really simple Japanese-inspired noodle dish that we had lots of fun making and eating! The following ingredients can be found at a natural-foods store or Asian supermarket:

  • 3-4 large pieces kombu
  • 2-4tbsp red miso paste (to taste)
  • soy sauce (to taste)
  • 1 1/2c halved shiitake mushrooms
  • 2 green onions
  • soba noodles

Boil the soba noodles for 5mins, rinse with cold water, and set aside. Simmer the kombu in ~2-3L of water for about 30 mins, then remove the kombu. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer until the vegetables (of your choice!) are tender. To serve, ladle over the soba noodles in individual bowls.
