    I was just thinking today I needed some cheap meals to get on rotation in Berlin. Enter this recipe. I think I could probably add some chicken/ fish > and it would still be a winner. SOBA-daily.

    I made this for lunch today and it was so fast- as in ready before my husband had even poured our iced coffee- and tasted like a little slice of soba noodle heaven. Thanks for posting all these amazeballs recipes Sarah!

    Made this for dinner tonight and it was great! I had a red pepper to add and i also added some chili garlic sauce and a squeeze of lime to finish! The huz loved it too and has already requested to have it again. Thanks!
