Miso chicken and soba noodle stir fry – a quick and healthy weeknight meal

By  |  0 Comments

Oh January.  The month we are all trying to be resolute, eat more healthfully, and get our butts in gear.

The month when we just want to spoon cake into our faces from the warm safety of our couch, and stare out the window at the harsh, frozen tundra.

No? Is it just me?

Yes, the world will thaw again, and we won’t want to hide behind behemoth sweaters, and the vapors of hot chocolate.

But that doesn’t make me want to eat a salad after shivering through an icy dog walk.

This miso chicken and soba noodle stir fry recipe I wrote for The Boston Globe, with it’s tender-crisp greens, and nourishing soba noodles, is a fabulous, healthy alternative.

It’s filled with protein, and fiber, and freshness.

It’s packed with umami flavor, kissed with sweet miso, and has a little hit of Sriracha, which warms you from within.

Like whiskey.

Thank all that is holy, the threat of Sriracha-pocolypse has passed.

Bring the bottle to the table, for those who want to turn up the heat.

Who doesn’t?


Happy healthy eating!

Also, serve this with cold Japanese beer.

If you are into that kind of thing.
