  2. Whisk well and set aside.
  3. Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil.
  4. Add Soba Noodles and cook according to directions.

  6. In a wok or large skillet heat the 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil over high heat.
  7. Add the cabbage and snow peas or cut long beans.
  8. Toss the cabbage and snow peas constantly until cabbage is wilted and snow peas are bright green-around 4 minutes.
