Soba Noodles with Swiss Chard and Shitaki Recipe

Soba noodles are delightful, light and gluten-free. They pack in lots of flavor and nutrition, are delicious and a snap to prepare, a most welcome change from the same old same old pasta. Do try your best to get the seaweed, they will add a funky briny flavor to the dish


1 pound soba noodles

1/3 cup toasted sesame oil

8 cloves garlic, minced

2-inch piece ginger, grated

1 large bunch Swiss chard, stems and leaves, thinly sliced

1 pound Shitaki mushrooms, stems discarded, sliced

1/4 cup hijiki (seaweed: Health food stores), soaked in warm water to cover

1 bunch scallions, sliced very thin

3-4 tablespoons soy sauce

2-3 tablespoons bottled hot sauce


Bring water to boil in a large pot, with a little salt and a little oil. Add the soba noodles and boil 3-4 minutes. Drain and reserve. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and ginger and sauté until fragrant, just one minute. Add the Swiss chard and shitaki and sauté until all liquids evaporate, 3-4 minutes. Add the reserved cooked noodles, the seaweed, scallions, soy sauce, and cook until just heated through, stirring to combine. Serve hot or at room temperature.

    Everything’s good on my end. I was able to access the Farfalle recipe – and now I know what I’m making for dinner! Thank you for getting back to me.

    Take care and Yom Tovah!

  2. Rachel, on Said:

    Hello Chef. Levana,

    May I first say that I love your facebook page and recipes. They make me passionate about cooking and have made me a better cook. Thank you for that! :)

    Everytime I click on the “Farfalle with Garlic, Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Basil” link from the recipe index, the page goes to “Soba Noodles with Swiss Chard and Shitaki” instead. I think there might be something wrong with the link.

    Thanks for your time!
