Wasabi powder or paste is readily available at most supermarkets. Chilled beer, hot sake or green tea make for suitable beverages. And for dessert, keep it simple with fresh fruit.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. soba noodles
  • 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 6 oz. soy "beef" strips
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs. cornstarch
  • 2 Tbs. mirin
  • 1 Tbs. wasabi paste, or to taste
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 5 oz. shelled, cooked edamame
  • 1 Tbs. sesame seeds for garnish

Preparation

Bring pot of water to a boil over medium-high heat, and cook soba noodles according to package directions. When tender, remove from heat, drain and set aside.

Heat oil in large wok or skillet, and stir-fry “beef” strips until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Meanwhile, mix together water and soy sauce, and stir in cornstarch until smooth. Add mirin, wasabi paste and sesame oil.

Add edamame to wok, and stir-fry 1 minute. Add water mixture, and stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes more until mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat.

To serve, place equal portions of noodles on two plates, and top with equal portions “beef” stir-fry. Garnish with sesame seeds.
