INSTRUCTIONS

1
Pickle the cucumber

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for the soba noodles. Peel and thinly slice the cucumber. Add sliced cucumber, just 2 tbsp rice vinegar, just ½ tsp agave, and ⅛ tsp salt to a medium bowl. Toss to combine, and set the quick pickles aside.

2
Prepare the produce

Destem kale and thinly slice the leaves. Trim and thinly slice the shiitake mushrooms. Peel and mince the garlic. Add remaining rice vinegar, remaining agave, minced garlic, tahini, tamari, sesame oil, 2 tbsp hot water, and a pinch of salt to a medium bowl and whisk the tahini sauce. TIP: Don’t forget to wash all produce under running water and wipe mushrooms clean with a damp kitchen towel.

3
Crisp the mushrooms

Heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sliced mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until well browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and sprinkle with salt. TIP: We will reuse this skillet in a later step.

4
Cook the noodles

Once the water is boiling, add soba noodles and gently stir. Cook until al dente, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain noodles and run under cool water to stop the cooking process.

5
Make the creamy tahini noodles

Return the skillet to medium-high heat and add sliced kale and 1 tbsp water. Cook until kale is wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat, add cooked soba noodles and tahini sauce to the kale, and stir.

6
Serve

Divide the creamy tahini noodles between bowls and top with crispy shiitakes and quick pickles. Enjoy!
