Uncooked soba noodles

8 oz

Rice wine vinegar

2 tbsp(s)

Low sodium soy sauce

2 tbsp(s)


2 tsp(s)

Uncooked scallion(s)

2 tbsp(s), finely sliced

Fresh spinach

8 cup(s)

Dark sesame oil

1 tsp(s), or toasted sesame oil

Garlic clove(s)

1 clove(s), large, minced


  1. Cook noodles according to package directions (do not boil or overcook, or noodles will be gummy). Drain and place in a large bowl. While noodles are still warm, add vinegar, soy sauce, honey and scallions; toss well to coat.
  2. Wash spinach but do not dry it; set aside.
  3. # Coat a large nonstick skillet or pot with cooking spray; add oil and place over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add garlic; cook, stirring until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add spinach to pan; cover and cook until spinach wilts, about 3 to 5 minutes. Toss spinach with noodle mixture and serve. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
