Bok Choy with Soba Noodles

Summer is officially over! Although not so in reality. I happen to love summer, really, but I’m excited for fall because maybe in a month or six weeks it’ll finally drop below 80 degrees. And it means that we’re starting to get some fall crops in our weekly CSA box. It’s honestly been several months since I had bok choy and now that I’m thinking about it, it was last fall when I ran the garden program at my son’s pre-k class.

We grew lettuce, radishes and bok choy and the kids loved it. Most of them thought the radishes were too spicy but almost every kid loved the crisp bok choy stems that we rinsed off and ate right there in the garden.

The kiddo is now asking me to add a gardening program to homeschool but it’s really been too damn hot to plant anything since we moved. So that’s another reason to be excited about cooler weather!

This simple bok choy with soba noodles is good room temperature or cold. I kind of prefer it cold, actually, but I am a fanatic for anything that can be made ahead of time and stuck in the fridge for hungry, tired times ahead.

Ingredients

6. ounces dry soba noodles (usually 2 bundles)

56 ounces bok choy (1 small bunch)

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 teaspoon minced ginger

12 teaspoons minced jalapeno (optional)

Garnish: sesame seeds, green onions

Instructions

Put on a large pot of water to boil. Get a bowl full of ice water ready.

Trim bok choy and slice if you like. It’s prettier kept whole but harder to eat 😉

Add soba to boiling water and set timer for 3 minutes. Taste for tenderness. When noodles are almost cooked, add bok choy and let cook another 30-45 seconds until bok choy is blanched.

Drain. Pour into ice water bowl and mix gently to cool and shock. Drain well again.

In a large bowl combine soy sauce through remaining ingredients. Mix gently. Garnish with sesame seeds or green onions.

 

Notes

*If your Bok Choy is a little spicy or bitter, add a pinch of sugar to the dressing
