Soba Noodles with Eggplant and Mango – Another Ottolenghi Delight

Every time we make a recipe from Ottolenghi’s cookbook ‘Plenty’, we are thrilled with how it turns out. The rich smokiness of the eggplant and tofu, the spicy sweet tang of the dressing, and the hearty noodles, all combine to make this a satisfying meal. We made this recipe and packed it up for a week of lunches (it seems to get better as it sits). This is also going to be our go-to recipe for potlucks and brunches.

Chicken with Soba Noodles in Jasmine Tea Broth

When we saw this recipe in Sunset magazine, with its jasmine tea broth and fennel and carrots and onions and soba noodles, we thought it would be a unique, delicious meal. And, we were not disappointed by our steamy, warm bowls of delicious soup. This will be a regular in our rotation. The tea is from Kuan Yin teahouse in Wallingford, which we highly recommend for finding unique teas.
