  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 medium red onion chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms chopped
  • 1/2 medium zucchini chopped
  • 1-2 stalks celery
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 100 g buckwheat soba noodles
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper or to taste
  • 4-5 Bok Choi leaves chopped
  • juice of 1/2 lime

For the crispy chickpeas

  • 3/4 cup cooked chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees C/392 F. Toss the chickpeas in the maple syrup, paprika, turmeric and salt. Roast for 15 minutes (*see recipe notes), until golden and crispy. 
  • Meanwhile, add the garlic and onion to a non-stick saucepan and cook until fragrant, for around 2-3 minutes, on a medium-high heat. Then, add the mushrooms and cook those down for around a minute more.
  • Lower the heat and add the zucchini, celery, vegetable broth, tamari and noodles. Season to taste with black pepper. Simmer on a low-medium heat until the noodles are cooked through (this usually takes around 5-7 minutes). 
  • Around a minute before the noodles are done, stir in the chopped Bok Choi. Squeeze in the juice of 1/2 lime and divide between serving bowls, topping with fresh herbs of your choice and the crispy chickpeas. 


* You can leave the chickpeas in the oven for longer to get them even crispier, but the 15-20 minute mark still works well if you want to make this as a quick dinner.
