Soba Noodle Veggie Stir-fry

If you love ordering noodles from Chinese takeout, this recipe is for you! This soba noodle stir fry is even better than takeout because it’s loaded with vegetables and it’s lighter than most Chinese takeout dishes. Double or triple the recipe as needed. Some other healthy Asian noodle recipes are Asian Peanut Noodles with Chicken and Shrimp Pad Thai.

I got this yummy soba noodle recipe from Rachel Mansfield’s new cookbook, Just the Good Stuff. Her cookbook features 100+ guilt-free recipes to satisfy all your cravings. Her recipes call for better-for-you ingredients that allow you to indulge while still maintaining a balanced approach to eating. She has a variety of gluten- free, paleo, and dairy-free recipes, all without any refined sugar.

This particular recipe caught my eye because it was simple and made a serving for one – something I rarely do here. Of course, you can double or triple it to feed more people, but it’s also great if you’re cooking for one.

Helpful Tips

Stir fries are such an easy dish to whip up when you’re short on time. This stir fry cooks in under ten minutes! It takes about as much time to boil and cook the noodles as it does to cook the stir fry. So, make sure you start boiling the water before you start on the vegetables.

Soba Noodles Sauce

The sauce is super simple, calling for only three ingredients: coconut aminos, Sriracha, and nut butter. Coconut aminos are a gluten-free, lower sodium alternative to soy sauce. However, you can use a low-sodium soy sauce if you prefer. If you’re not a fan of spicy foods, reduce the amount of Sriracha or omit it altogether. And for the nut butter, I used almond butter, but peanut butter would also work. If you’re allergic to nuts or just not a fan, substitute sun butter.

What are Soba Noodles

This vegetable stir fry is served over soba noodles, a Japanese buckwheat noodle. Soba noodles cook just like any other noodle – in boiling water for 4-6 minutes. Sometimes people get soba noodles and udon noodles mixed up. They’re both Japanese noodles but have their differences. Soba noodles are brown and thin and made of buckwheat, while udon are thick, round, and white and made of wheat. Udon noodles are popular in Asian soups, but you could definitely use them in this stir fry.


Stir fries are very versatile. This stir fry calls for broccoli, bell pepper, and onion, but you can use whatever veggies you happen to have on hand. You can easily prep your vegetables the night before, so you can get right to cooking when it’s dinner time. Or, use vegetables that don’t require any prep, like sugar snap peas and pre-sliced mushrooms.

  • For more protein, add edamame, tofu, or leftover salmon or chicken.
  • Swap out the veggies for whatever you have on hand. Sugar snap peas or diced zucchini would also be great.
  • Don’t want to use soba noodles? Swap them out for your favorite noodle. Try rice, whole wheat, udon, or even zucchini noodles to make it low-carb.
  • You can substitute low-sodium soy sauce for coconut aminos.
  • Use peanut or almond butter in the sauce or sun butter if you want it to be nut-free.

  1. Yummy!!  Made this for lunch today.  Used Healthy Noodles from Costco and frozen stir fry veggie blend.  My husband cleaned his plate.  A touch too spicy for me – mouth on fire but couldn’t stop eating it – great flavor.   Next time will cut back on Sriracha just a tiny bit. 

  2. Me and my 2 year old son really enjoyed this! We used sunbutter, changed up the veggies a bit with what we had in the fridge, and added roasted chicken since my son has an egg allergy. Will definitely be making again!

  3. Thank you again Gina for another 10/10 recipe!!!! My daughter survives on your 4 ingredient banana pancakes and now this!!! I couldn’t find the coconut aminos in my store so I did have to-use soy sauce instead and we used almond butter 😳as my daughter does not care for peanut butter. While she had this for dinner tonight, There rest of my family was enjoying your air fryer crispy breaded  pork chops from your Skinnytaste  One and Done cookbook. Another 10/10!!! Thx again!

  4. I truly enjoy your newsletter and I do make many of your recipes…I admit I change them up with full fat ingredients, only because that is what I have in the house. I enjoy the inspiration and variety of your newsletter. I love reading comments as I can learn from them. I didn’t know what coconut aminos were, and someone asked and you answered. I just want to add that I, as a reader was taken aback a little about the almost rude comments made by some. I have to say you handled them with grace. I think you know the comments I am referring to, and you know, if the recipe didn’t work for you, it probably was not anyone’s fault but the human element who made it, or, it was just a mismatch in taste. I am aware food bloggers share other cookbook recipes as a way to promote the cookbook and expand the audience. It would defeat the purpose if you changed the recipe…..that happens down the line after the book has been out awhile. Thank you for allowing me to vent. During these trying times, I wanted to let you know I appreciate your newsletter coming to my inbox, and the fact you provide free weekly meal plans and also nutrition breakdown is excellent. Stay healthy! PS…I haven’t made this recipe, but it sure sounds and looks delicious. Will try it for sure!

  5. This recipe was incredible! The flavors blended perfectly and this is going to be a new go-to weekly recipe. So quick and easy to wip up! 

  6. So good! I used a bit less sriracha and even my 10 yr old loved it!. She said it was a good amount of spice. 🙂

  7. I really enjoyed this. An easy and versatile recipe; throw in leftover shrimp, chicken or pork. I’ve made it plain but have also made it with additions; have also added a bit fish sauce. I agree its not the prettiest dish but it’s darn tasty. 

  8. I’m trying to understand why you would post an exact duplicate of someone else’s recipe out of a cookbook they published in this way. Why would anyone buy the cookbook when you are on your blog posting the recipes for free??? Cookbooks are already not very profitable and are usually quite expensive for the author/chef to produce. Could you please explain???

    1. I would love to explain. We have the same publisher, all of us cookbook authors help promote each others cookbooks by sharing a recipe from the book.
      Many authors do the same with my cookbooks. Her editor sent me the recipe.

  9. I have used over 100 of the Skinnytaste recipes for many years now and this one was the only one that did not deliver. The flavor was way off, the way it looked after it all was put together was very unappealing, and it was not fast to put together. It is not a keeper. Nothing is worth saving from this recipe.

  10. An awesome, easy alternative to takeout! It came together quickly and my skeptical husband was surprised at how delicious a meatless meal could be. I was hoping for leftovers but there weren’t any! Thank you for another great recipe!

  11. This didn’t have a bad flavor but it was kind of bland. Weird combo of ingredients and surprisingly pleasant. I felt as if it was missing something but I couldn’t put my finger on it. Not sure if I will make this again.

    Soba pasta soup best sweet-full. this spicy Soba Noodle Veggie Stir Fry is a quick as well as easy This makes soba pasta the most nutritionally beneficial of all the Japanese noodles. Soba pasta has a lengthy history.

  13. Hi! If I want to make this for five, do I just do five times for each ingredient? That’s seems like it would be too much egg and nut butter?

    1. Why comment on the picture at all if you don’t find it appealing ?  That just seems unkind. It wasn’t feedback on how the recipe turned out for you or a question about how to prepare it. When I see comments like this I wonder if you would say this in person or is it the  anonymity of the internet that gives people the sense they can say whatever they like.  Thanks for posting all these great meal ideas Gina. 

    1. Coconut aminos are typically used as a substitute for soy sauce so I’d bet it also works the opposite way!
