Having quick dinners like this in your back pocket is a MUST for those crazy weeknights when you don’t have a lot of time, and honestly, don’t feel like cooking. Soba noodles take no time to cook and everything else is cooked in one skillet. This can be thrown together in a pinch and you can swap out veggies depending on what you have on hand.

How to make 20-Minute Teriyaki Soba Noodles

Start by boiling some water. While you wait for that, chop the veggies. This is the most “intense” part of this recipe, and it will literally take you less than 10 minutes. I decided to use garlic, mushrooms, bok choy and green onion. You could really use anything, but here are some other ideas:

  • broccoli
  • bell pepper
  • asparagus
  • cauliflower
  • carrots

Once everything is chopped, heat some sesame oil in a skillet. Add the garlic, white pepper, red pepper flakes, whites of the green onion, mushrooms and stalks of the bok choy. Cook this down until the mushrooms release their liquid and then it cooks off. Add a couple tablespoons of store bought teriyaki sauce and let it caramelize the mushrooms.

This is another reason this recipe is so quick – we aren’t making sauce from scratch. We’re keeping it super simple!

At this point, you can add the soba noodles to the boiling water and let them boil for a few minutes.

How to finish 20-Minute Teriyaki Soba Noodles

The noodles cook super quick, so once they’re tender, drain them and add them to the skillet. Add in the greens of the bok choy and more teriyaki sauce. I like to add a little teriyaki sauce at a time until I find the perfect amount that coats everything and isn’t overly salty. So just add a couple tablespoons at a time until you find the sweet spot.

At this point, these are ready to eat. Top each bowl with the remaining green onion and some sesame seeds.

These noodles are literally the perfect weeknight dinner and even make great leftovers for lunch the next day!
