Serves 4

This stir-fry is made with my favorite vegetables and my homemade stir-fry sauce. Not only is it delicious but it’s packed with too health benefits to list! Served over protein-packed, gluten free soba noodles makes it an ideal dish that’s great on it’s own or can pair well with any additional protein! 


  • 2 heads broccoli cut into florets
  • 1 head of bok choy trimmed and cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 cup shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
  • 8 ounces 100% buckwheat soba noodles (I used Eden Foods)
  • 1 tbsp. fresh grated ginger or ginger juice
  • 1 tbsp. tamari or shoyu soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. coconut aminos
  • ¼ cup brown rice vinegar
  • ¼ cup sesame oil
  • ¼ cup fresh scallion, chopped (I also recommend cilantro if you like that)
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons ghee or grass fed butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • White or black sesame seeds for garnish


  • Prepare the stir-fry sauce by combining the ginger, tamari, coconut aminos, vinegar, sesame oil, scallion and garlic.  Set aside.
  • Steam the broccoli florets in a steamer basket until bright and green.  If you don’t have a steamer basket you can bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil and boil broccoli for about 30 seconds to 1 min.  Remove from water and set aside. 
  • Repeat above for the bok choy.  Set aside with the broccoli.
  • Bring water back to a boil and cook the soba noodles according to the instructions on the package.  Strain when done and set aside.
  • Melt olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter or ghee in a large sauté pan over medium high heat.  Add mushrooms and cook, tossing occasionally, until tender and golden brown, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium and add broccoli, bok choy and prepared stir-fry sauce to the mushrooms.  Add and melt the remaining tbsp. of butter and cook together for a few minutes, coating all the vegetables in the sauce. 
  • Fill bowls with a portion of the soba noodles and top with the vegetables.  Add additional sauce on top if desired.  Garnish with lemon zest and sesame seeds.  
  • Serve and enjoy!
