As with any form of seasoning personal taste is important. If you like a bit more chilli increase the amount of SriRacha sauce, or leave it out. The amount of garlic and green ginger can also be altered to suit your palate. Sesame oil can be an aquired taste, use less to start with and add more at the table.
all from the supermarket
Soba noodles, soy sauce, oil (I like grapeseed), sesame oil, Sri racha sauce, garlic and green ginger.
Hint for the ginger.
I cut a large piece of green ginger into small knobs, peel it and then place the knobs in a small ziplock bag and freeze. It is easily grated frozen.
It Is This Easy - Just Follow These Steps
Bring a pot of water on to boil.
Add a teaspoon or two of grated green ginger, a clove of garlic and lots of Asian greens. Stir and cook until they just wilt.
Remove from pan and put vegetables onto a clean plate.
Put soba noodles into the boiling water and cook, usually 3-4 minutes.
Adapt the recipe to chicken, it will take a bit longer for the chicken to cook but the process is the same.
Use other vegetables such as thinly sliced beans and broccolini. I always quicly blanch these vegetables in boiling water or give them a zap in the microwave.
