  1. Follow the soba recipe, reserving 1 cup of noodle broth and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar mixture, lime, and sugar.  Set aside.  Make sure to have all the vegetables prepared before stir-frying.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat, immediately add in the celery.  Cook until brown, about 3 minutes.  Add in the garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes.  Cook for 2 minutes, taking care not to let the garlic burn.
  4. Add in the mushrooms, edamame, and ¼ cup of noodle broth.  Cook until the broth is mostly absorbed and the mushrooms shrink.
  5. Stir in the noodles, scallions, and soy sauce mixture.  Cook until the noodles are heated through and evenly coated with sauce.  Add in noodle broth 1 tablespoon at a time if the noodles seem too dry.  Serve immediately.

Chef Tips

When using soba noodles in stir-fries, it’s best to undercook them by one minute to help keep them from breaking up when tossed with the vegetables in the pan. Use the packet directions as a guide.
