I love spending time in the kitchen, it’s cathartic for me. But sometimes, like everyone else, I have to make dinner within twenty minutes. Most of the time it’s because I have dance class and need to eat early so that I can digest and not puke all over the dance floor. On those nights, I usually opt for noodles. They are super fast to cook and I never need to make a sauce that requires a pan to heat it up. In the past, soba was my go-to. Whip up a peanut sauce, steam some vegetables, toss, and I’m done. While this will continue to be a staple for me, I have some good news, I’ve managed to cut down the time and number of plates/pots/pans to clean with this mushroom, soy sauce, noodle dish.
