This soba noodle stir fry is an easy-to-make + nourishing noodle dish that’s perfect for any weeknight dinner or quick lunch! Made with gluten free soba noodles, mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, edamame, and a delicious 4 ingredient stir fry sauce. Crave worthy and healthy! Vegan, gluten free, dairy free, nutrient dense.



For stir fry

  • 1 8-ounce package gluten free buckwheat soba noodles
  • 2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cups broccoli florets (I used broccolini florets)
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 3/4 cup shelled edamame
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • For serving: Thinly sliced green onion, sesame seeds, and chilies (optional)

For stir fry sauce


  1. Prep veggies and stir fry sauce. Before you start cooking prep all veggies, cilantro, green onions, and whisk together stir fry sauce. Place everything near the stove top so you can grab quickly while cooking.
  2. Cook the noodles. Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook soba noodles according to package instructions. Leave them slightly undercooked by about 30 seconds since you’ll be cooking them once more in a pan with the stir fry sauce. Drain and rinse thoroughly with cold water. Set aside. 
  3. Cook mushrooms, broccoli, and carrots. Heat the toasted sesame oil over medium heat in a large skillet or a wok. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until soft and starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Add broccoli and carrots and cook another minute or so, until broccoli is bright green but still crisp, and carrots are slightly tender. Reduce heat to low.
  4. Assemble the stir fry and serve. Rinse soba noodles one more time to loosen if they’re sticking together. Add the stir fry sauce to the skillet and scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Add rinsed soba noodles along with edamame, cilantro, and 1 tablespoon sesame seeds. Toss together, continuing to cook until the sauce has mostly evaporated, and everything is nice and hot – about 2-3 minutes. My favorite kitchen tool for tossing noodles is a good pair of kitchen tongs! Top with green onions, chilies, and extra sesame seeds. Serve and enjoy!


For a gluten free option check the label of your soba noodles before buying to make sure they contain only buckwheat flour, and no added wheat flour.

For easy assembly of the recipe prep all of your ingredients before you start cooking, and keep everything within arms reach of your skillet or wok as you cook.

Feel free to substitute or add any vegetables that sound yummy to you! 

For extra protein feel free to add tofu, tempeh, prawns, or chicken. See notes in blog post above for protein cooking instructions.
