If I make a big vat of this should the noodles be kept separate from the rest of the soup while it is in the fridge? Do soba noodles soak up a lot of liquid? Thanks!

I started watching because i am a fan of Matt's then I got hooked on you and the recipes, then I started cooking healthier- then I got your cookbook, then more cookbooks, them I changed out my pantry. Now at least 60% of the time I am cooking whole foods and we are eating much better.Your humor and no nosense got to me more than classes and lectures. Thank you.Joan Tucker

Sophia, Yes I would keep the noodles separate but toss them with a oil first so they don't get too sticky. They can be steamed and reserved. Joan - your comment made our day!

I am really to find your website and am copying a chocolate cake recipe to later today. Thanks, Julie

We are soy intolerant, what would you use in place of the soy sauce? Thank you.

my family loves your videos. We sit together and watch them. My kids all love food and cooking. We're making two of your recipes this week. The Yaki Soba (gluten-free version) and June's chili (with turkey instead). By the way, I won a chili cook-off with that recipe a few months ago. We love it. Kyndale http://earthycrunchy.typepad.com

This was a real winner - my mother who is allergic to wheat loved it over rice sticks. The broth is so fantastic... I must have an earlier version of the cookbook because this recipe and the fried tofu recipe are not in mine - mine is dated 1997. Would you recommend me getting an updated version, as there may be other recipes that are not in mine? Thanks for all you do.

Angela, The newest edition of my book has about 60 new recipes. Also I am continuously changing and tweaking my recipes. I use them in my classes at Bastyr University and when 6 groups of people make the same recipe I seem to always find things to change. Nature of the beast...

What a neat site. I stumbled upon it while researching rice cookers. I have been doing much of this anyway for the last 45 years, but one can always use some fresh inspiration. It is great to see young people get turned on to good simple wholesome cooking. Keep up the good work!

My husband now likes mushrooms because of this soup....Shitake mushrooms at least.

I like it. The soup recipe is very similar to the way I make miso soup. Instead of soy source, you can put miso with the same ingredients (you can try other vegetables as well). It will make a good miso soup.

By the way, 'Yaki Soba' means stir fried noodle (not with buck wheat noodle, but wheat noodle) in Japanese. So you might want to call this dish 'Vegetable Soba Soup' or something.

Looks good! (& I agree with the comment above, its misleading because you're not pan frying but putting into a broth & the noodles are buckwheat= soba noodle). Do you have the cal per serving? All your recipes look great! Thanks!

My 2 year old LOVES this soup. She scoops the broth with her little spoon and picks up every last bit of tofu, bok choy, and mushroom with unbridled enthusiasm. I love your recipes and best of all my family does too! Thank you!

Both of my girls (1.5yrs. & 5.5yrs.)INHALE this scrumptious soup. They pretty much inhale most of the food that I make from the recipes in your 'purple' book. Thanks for all the goodness!

Delicious twist on the traditional stir-fried yakisoba that I'm used to. Never thought of turning it into a soup. Yummy on a cold winter day here in the northwest(we didn't need hot soup when I lived in Hawaii).

Really, really wanted to make this tonite, but now the recipe is gone!
