Great flavor and super quick/easy to make. The soba noodles are perfect for this. But, for me, the ratio of noodles to sauce was off. I felt like it needed more sauce. Next time I’ll either reduce the noodles or double the sauce.

This is SUCH a delicious and easy meatless meal! I used double the kale, including the thinly sliced stems, which I cooked with the mushrooms. I would have loved some color on the mushrooms, but that would make prep time much longer.

Incredibly fast and easy to make and utterly delicious. My only problem, of my own making, was that I didn't rinse the soba after cooking (as per package directions) and they really stuck together. And it was still delicious. I used baby Bellas and Swiss Chard as that is what I had on hand.

This was so delicious! I added eight ounces of cubed tempeh along with the mushrooms and a drizzle of chili oil before serving.

Fantastic simple dish! The smell as you walk into the kitchen is sooo wonderful. Its nutty, aromatic and welcoming. I made it with kale from my daughter's garden and the crisp bite was a great complement to the noodles. I added more lime at the end for an acid punch.

Great recipe! Is there a vegan alternate for the fish sauce? Maybe miso?

Hi Sanjana: I’ve never tried miso, but I think either it or mushroom sauce would give a nice umami boost! Please let me know if you try a substitute and how it works out!

Hi there, first time I'll be making this and using (Thai) fish sauce. I can only get sweet-chili sauce where I live, will it work ok? I don't mind sweet 'n sour food... but I'd be bothered if it ruined it... Thanks!!

Hi Daniela! It should work just fine...maybe add a 1/4 tsp to be safe, then add more to taste when serving. If you want more kick, you could add red chile flakes as well and/or sriracha. It’s a very flexible dish, one that can be tinkered to your liking! Hope this helps, and let me know how it goes!

A simple process, that takes but little time from start to finish. A reasonable means for an Umami fixin'. In accordance with my tastebuds, I recommend adding 1/4 to 1/2 a tsp.

This was relatively easy to make and very delicious. I would only maybe add more chili garlic paste for a tad more kick. Be forewarned, your house will smell like fish sauce for a while

This dish was amazing. The mix of flavors while still being so simple was fabulous. Definitely a keeper!!!

The method of making brown butter is similar to making GHEE ( clarified butter) where the butter is cooked till the milk solids separate from the fat to give clear transparent ghee after the browned milk solids are strained . Ghee adds a delicious flavour to Every thing its added to.
