Yamaimo Soba Noodles with Veggies and Spam

Yamaimo Soba noodles are made with  yam extract and buckwheat, they are sift and nutty when cooked.  This is one of the many goodies included in this month's box from Try the World.  I have never tried making this  before but when I pre-cooked it, it reminded me of the local noodles that we have in the Philippines, we call it  pancit bato.  
As I was thinking of what to cook or how to cook it, I went to garden and   got some  veggies.  I was going to make the soba noodles into a salad as indicated in the instruction in the box said that it isgood to serve with broth or as a salad.  But then, I thought why not make it like how my father would cook our pancit bato.
 So here's the simple recipe for Yamaimo Soba Noodles with Veggies and Spam:

  • 1 lemon
  • Tri-color bell  peppers
  • A handful of   kale
  • 1 dsmall piece of ginger.  diced
  • spam
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pack Yamaimo Soba Noodles
  • 5 cups of water
 Cooking Direction:

  • Gather up your ingredients and sliced them up according to desired  thickness.  
  • Zest the  lemon and sliced it up.  
  • Boil the water, cook the noodles until al dente.  Remove excess water.  incorporate the  kemon zest and set aside.
  • Put the oil in a hot pan.  Fry the spam until it's lightly brown.  Add the shallots then add  the veggies.  Cook for  5 minutes and turn off the  stove.
  • Add the  soba noodles, mix it all together.
  • Serve with a lemon wedge to squuze on top of the dish.

I used this Japanese serving dish to put the noodles in.  We got this dish from a Japanese friend as a wedding gift.  

 We ate it with Italina  bread baked  and topped with cheese.
The watermelon milk shake was a perfect refreshment for the dish.
The kids liked the taste of the dish but they didn't like the texture of the noodles.  My husband thought it was tasty but just like the  kids, he also wasn't fond of the texture of the soba noodles.

I have never tried soba noodles, so I'm not sure how I'd like it. The watermelon milkshake looks really good!

Liz Mays said...

I have a hard time finding those noodles in stores, so I'm a little jealous you got them in your box. ;) I like everything included!

While I am not a big fan of spam, I love the noodles in this dish! It looks so healthy and versatile and it would be good for a quick, healthy mid-week dish for the family!

Sis R,
The food looks very delish. It looks very healthy too. I LOVE spam and noodles as well.

I have been experimenting lately on Asian cuisine and you've given me some good ideas. I would use something other than spam as the meat source, but I love the wide array of veggies in your meal. I bet the lemons give it a nice zesty flavor.

That looks delicious. What a great idea to add spam and vegetables. I beat it was good.

Oh how I miss Spam in recipes! Growing up in Hawaii it was everywhere - on the mainland it's much more difficult to find acceptance for that noble canned meat.

Yum! We love Soba. We usually keep it pretty simple but we'll have to try to put all those veggies in next time.

CourtneyLynne said...

This sounds like an great dish indeed and a great meal. I will have to try making this spam dish. We used to eat Spam when we were kids. The watermelon shake and cheesy italian bread sound so delicious as well. Thanks for sharing.

I have never heard of these noodles before. They sound like a nice healthy alternative!

Maria Teresa Figuerres said...

Because soba noodles are made from yam and buckwheat, I reckon they're healthy. I'd love to try them, too, to see if I'd enjoy them or not.

Bree said...

I think the only thing I would change is using Spam, but that's because I don't like it at all. Everything else about this looks absolutely delicious and amazing. I will definitely be trying this!
