Sweet and Sour Vegetables with Soba Noodles

served with Lime-Dressed Cucumber-Bok Choy Salad and Spicy Cashews

For our sweet and sour vegetables, we coat carrots, bell peppers, onions, and tempeh in a sauce that is lighter but no less satisfying than most syrupy takeout options. Rice is a traditional carryout side, but we prefer to serve this sweet and sour with soba noodles, the nutty noodles made with buckwheat flour. All that’s needed is a piquant side of thinly sliced crunchy cucumber and bok choy in a lime dressing with roasted spicy cashews sprinkled over the top.

Before preparing your meal we recommend reading the instructions thoroughly and gathering the kitchen supplies you will need. We also suggest washing and drying all vegetables and herbs.

  1. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil.
  2. Thinly slice the cucumber(s) and the bok choy and put in a bowl. Set to the side
  3. Cut off the carrot top(s) and peel, and then thinly slice. Cut the bell pepper into thin slices, avoiding the seeds.
  4. Cook the noodles in the boiling water until tender but still with a bite, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain
  5. Set a large saute pan or frying pan over medium-high to high heat. Once hot, carefully add the noodles to avoid any splattering of the oil. Stir continuously until the noodles begin to crisp, about 2 minutes. Add the the carrot and pepper slices, along with the sauce, and continue to cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are tender, but still with a bite, about 3 minutes. Stir in the spinach, just until wilted, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat.
  6. Toss the cucumber-bok choy with the lime dressing and sprinkle with the spicy cashews. (Try a cashew first. They can be served on the side.)
  7. Enjoy the sweet and sour vegetables and soba noodles with the crunchy cucumber-bok choy salad.
