  • 3 oz. lean beef (use tofu, seitan, or another protein for a vegetarian option)
  • 1 cup soba noodles
  • ½ cup bok choy
  • 1½ cup vegetables - daikon, red bell pepper, carrots, white mushrooms

  • Cooking oil
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish

  1. Cook beef (or protein of choice) on the stovetop with cooking oil over medium heat until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (steaks) or 160 degrees F (ground beef).
  2. While protein is cooking, prepare noodles according to package directions.
  3. Rinse and chop the bok choy and vegetables.
  4. Place a Tbsp. of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook the vegetables for approximately 5 minutes. Then add bok choy and cook until wilted or desired consistency.
  5. While vegetables are cooking, combine ingredients for the sauce in a bowl and set aside. 
  6. Chop fresh cilantro.
  7. Once you have prepared everything, combine noodles, beef, and vegetables into a bowl. Drizzle desired amount of sauce over your dish and garnish with sesame seeds, pistachios, and cilantro.

Chef's Note

Make substitutes based on your GenoPalate Report! Try using a different grain instead of noodles or subbing in various vegetables.
