To balance out the sweet in the sauce, I tossed the Soba in Sriracha.. Doesnt that stuff make everything even more delicious:). This bowl can be made gluten-free with gf noodles/soba or serve with brown rice or quinoa. I used Buckwheat Soba which has wheat in it.
This is one quick weeknight meal. Add other things like Tofu or Seitan or blanched Veggies. The Teriyaki Sauce is refined oil-free and can be made ahead and drizzled on blanched or roasted veggies.
This was another super hit with hubbs. I added even more Sriracha to my noodles. Button mushrooms are growing on me now, but Shiitake need some work.
