Soba Noodles with Stir Fried Vegetables

Soba noodles are a nice switch from the ordinary. These specialty noodles are made with buckwheat flour with some variations adding whole wheat flour.

This is a wholesome vegetarian dish, abundant in vegetables which will fill you up. A simple hoisin sauce coats the vegetables and noodles, while the sesame oil gives these noodles a slightly nutty taste.
