Ginger Soba with Kale & Brussels Sprouts
Eat + Drink, How To Glow, Recipes

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!

  1. Do you suggest anything else if I don’t have Tamari? Or any suggestions on different vegetables that can be used that will go well in this dish?

    1. Tamari is a pretty integral part of this dish, but if you’d like to avoid it you could just increse the sesame oil and add in some ponzu sauce instad. You could also use different vegetables including shredded carrots, cabbage, and edameme beans. Enjoy!!
