Soba and Maitake Mushrooms in Soy Broth

Soba and Maitake Mushrooms in Soy Broth
This soup is trendy ramen’s healthier sibling: The buckwheat in soba is nutritious and a good source of fiber (in a flavorful maitake mushroom soy broth, too).
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Main dish
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled, crushed
  • 1 1” piece peeled ginger, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup dried wakame (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ½ pound maitake mushrooms, torn into large pieces
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 ounces soba (Japanese-style noodles)
  • 4 baby turnips or radishes, trimmed, thinly sliced
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  1. Bring garlic, ginger, and 4 cups water to a boil in a small saucepan; reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Add soy sauce and wakame, if using. Set broth aside.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing occasionally, until golden brown and crisp, 10–12 minutes. Transfer to a large plate.
  3. Meanwhile, cook soba in a large pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally, until al dente; drain. Return reserved broth to a simmer.
  4. Divide soba and broth among bowls; top with mushrooms, turnips, and egg yolks. Add scallions and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
