Sesame Soba Noodles

I bought a package of soba noodles a few months ago. Then those darn noodles just sat in my cupboard, staring back at me each and every time I went looking for a fistful of chocolate chips a healthy snack. Last night, I decided it was time. I must use those noodles right after I eat a few chocolate chips for a little soba-noodle cooking energy.

The soba noodle verdict? Delightful! 5 stars! A+!  I loved this sesame-flavored, veggie-filled soba noodle dish. I now have enough leftovers for a few lunches and a few more dinners and several midnight snacks and 3am snacks and after school snacks and maybe even one or two midmorning snacks. I could not be more pleased. Although, one could argue a strong case for eating chocolate chips for dinner if you don’t have soba noodles hanging out in your cupboard.
