Yakisoba is a type of Japanese noodle recipe that includes stir fried meat, vegetables and noodles. It’s delicious when cooked with vegetables that you love. I used to purchase yummy noodles from Costco, but they were full of food additives and very caloric. I don’t buy them anymore and have not made this recipe in ages for that reason.

Healthy eating is about finding substitutions for foods that you want to limit or finding healthy upgrades that will work. I know rice noodles would work well in this recipe, but I was at Trader Joe’s and they don’t carry them. I grabbed linguini noodles, hoping they would work. Well they worked great, so here is the revamped recipe. It’s a large recipe that will make 8 large servings, which was my plan; lunch leftovers for the rest of the week!

This modified recipe was delicious and one of my favorite healthy recipes. You can add any vegetables that you love to the mix. I always use green beans and cabbage, but red peppers go well and look pretty. I love making this at home because it’s easy to include your favorite vegetables and a nice amount of them, which is a healthy diet habit to adopt. 

Yakisoba with vegetables

Since I started making this recipe at home, I have been highly disappointed when I order it in a restaurant. It’s usually very oily and mostly noodles, with very little vegetables included, even when I order a vegetarian option.
