In our house, my husband eats all the grains I prepare without complaint even though they are not his favorite. In particular, he isn’t a big rice fan. Noodle bowls are my bowl compromise. Sure, noodles aren’t as nutritious as grains but they still allow me to load the bowl up with lots of vegetables and flavors. It’s a perfect way for us to meet in the middle. This soba bowl recipe is great this time of year. It’s simple enough on ingredients but makes for the perfect lunch or light dinner.
