Ginger Soba with Kale & Brussels Sprouts

This soba salad recipe is nutritious and so delicious. Providing a dose of healthy carbs and lots of energy, soba noodles should become a staple in your diet. The miso ginger dressing takes this dish to the next level.  We trust the Japanese and their love of soba--it's full of fiber, complex carbohydrates, and manganese, giving you ample energy throughout the day. Soba has a deliciously nutty and hearty flavor, and it's a perfectly healthy way to satisfy your cravings for noodles. We love this ginger-soba recipe, which can be considered a salad, filled with lots of shredded kale and brussels sprouts to offer some extra fiber, nutrients, chew, and overall goodness.



1. Cook soba according to package directions / serving size 2. Rinse after cooking, set aside, and let it cool


  • 1 or 2 large cloves of garlic (depending on how garlicky you like it)
  • 2 1/2 inch nub of peeled ginger
  • 1 tsp miso paste
  • 5 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • juice from 1/2 lemon

1. Place all ingredients in a blender and whiz up, if it’s looking too thick, add an additional splash of tamari / toasted sesame oil to thin it out


1. Thinly shave about 6-8 brussels sprouts on a mandolin (you can use more brussels if you want) 2. Thinly chiffonade 1/2 bunch of kale into ribbons


1. Place cooked soba, shaved brussels sprouts, and sliced kale into a large bowl 2. Pour the dressing over, and use your hands to incorporate it well 3. Top with a generous amount of sesames seeds and thinly sliced scallions if you’d like... We also like adding a hard boiled / poached egg, avocado, and spicy sauce to make it a full meal!
