My daughter and husband really liked this dish. I didn't have soba noodles so, I used linguine instead. I used canola oil and, toasted almonds. Will definitely make this again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil.
  2. Cook the soba noodles in the boiling water for about 2 minutes or until they are al dente.(cooking any longer will cause the noodles to clump together.).
  3. Drain the noodles, rinse lightly with cold water and drain again. (This is important so the noodles won't stick.).
  4. Combine the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, chili paste, sugar, and sesame oil in a small bowl and set aside.
  5. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
  6. When hot, add the onions, garlic, carrots, and cabbage. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until the vegetables begin to soften and brown slightly.
  7. Add the soba noodles and the soy sauce mixture and cook just long enough to reheat the noodles and thoroughly coat them in the sauce.
  8. Serve garnished with the chopped scallions and toasted sesame seeds.
