This is what you will need for 4 servings:

  • ¾ pound hen of woods mushrooms (aka maitake mushrooms)
  • 2 shallots thinly sliced
  • Cooking spray
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons safflower, canola or peanut oil
  • 10-12 asparagus spears trimmed and thinly sliced on bias
  • 1 cup blanched and peeled fava beans or spring peas
  • 1 bunch spring onions or scallions, sliced on bias, whites and greens separated
  • 1½ inches ginger root, grated or finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar or yuzu
  • 2 tablespoons mirin or sake
  • About 3 tablespoons tamari, soy sauce or liquid aminos
  • 1 (12 ounces) package soba noodles
  • 1 bunch rainbow chard or flat-leaf kale, stemmed and sliced into thin ribbons, or spring lettuces, shredded
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Here is how to prepare Rachael Ray’s Soba Primavera:

Preheat oven to 450˚F. Pull mushrooms into thin florets and combine with shallots, then spray or drizzle with oil to coat and season with salt and pepper. Roast 20-25 minutes to crispy, tossing and turning midway.

Heat water to boiling (about 4 quarts) for soba and season water with salt once boiling.

Heat a large nonstick skillet or wok over high heat, add oil, 3 turns of the pan, and stir-fry the asparagus 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat a bit and add favas or peas, scallion whites, ginger, and garlic, then toss another minute or 2. Add the vinegar or yuzu, mirin or sake, and soy sauce or substitute. Reduce heat to simmer.

Cook soba 1 minute less than package directions. Add soba to sauce and vegetables and wilt in the greens. Drizzle the soba with sesame oil and toss with green onion tops. Serve Soba Primavera in bowls topped with crispy hen of woods mushrooms and shallots, and garnish with sesame seeds.

You see it is easy, delicious, healthy and does not take up too much time to prepare. Vegan or not this is one to try!
