  1. This was so friggin delicious and filling. Used all organic vegetables, and curly kale instead of spinach so that the greenery would hold up. Also used a very large clove of garlic (about 3 small) and squeezed the ginger juice into the sauce before chopping up the piece. Extra sesame seeds for more texture. Oh, and we only had soba noodles in the house. Fed two hungry adults.
