This is a very beautiful recipe. I love all the ingredients, so I knew I'd love it. I would make a change though. I'd add the soba noodles to the boiling water first, then add the vegetables for a couple of minutes. I found my veggies to be a little too "done" for a stir fry. Also, I think this serves more than 4....it made quite a lot! The presentation is beautiful, and if you get a bite of cashew with each bite, it is salty enough. Otherwise sprinkle a little more soy on it. Quick and easy weeknight meal!
