I love soba and often cook it. This files most often choose options with meat - chicken or pork. With vegetables we also liked.
Vegetables you can even add eggplant and green beans.
Prepare the foods for cooking noodles. Take young zucchini, it is soft and tasty. Or you can take the zucchini. Salt is not required, instead it is soy sauce. Instead of ground spices you can take fresh ginger and garlic.
Wash the carrots well, then peel. Slice the carrots into thin sticks.
Zucchini wash, dry. If the skin is too thick, remove it using peelers. Slice the zucchini the same way as carrots.
Pepper wash, dry. It is important that the vegetables were dry because they are fried and excess moisture from the butter will start to sizzle and steam. Pepper cut into same strips as the other vegetables. When cooking Japanese noodles such cutting is considered a traditional.
Put on the stove a large pan for vegetables and a pot for the noodles. Vegetables and noodles are prepared in about the same time, so will do everything at the same time. Let the pan warm up. Pour on it oil, and then lay out the vegetables. Fire make an average, vegetables to roast, not stew. Add the sugar, it the vegetables slightly securamerica and will be beautifully shiny. Don't worry, they won't be sweet, only acquire a light smack.
Let the vegetables roast for 7-10 minutes, do not forget to mix them. Longer to cook them is not necessary, the vegetables should remain slightly crispy. The water will boil, season with a little salt it and toss the noodles. Cook noodles according to instructions on the package, it usually takes 7 minutes. But do not overcook it, soba should remain slightly firm, to al dente. So the noodles will be more tasty and will not stick together.
Add the cooked noodles directly into the frying pan to the vegetables, passing the colander. It does not matter if you get there a little water, the noodles will become juicier. Add to the noodles spices and pour soy sauce. Mix.
Cover skillet, reduce heat and allow the noodles to "make friends" with vegetables and to soak up the flavors of the spices. She let him stew a while longer so 5 minutes. Then put the noodles on plates, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
