Soba Noodle Stir-fry

Is it possible to have easy noodles at home, better than take-away???
I think so ;-)
This dish takes me less time to prepare than it does for me to drive to our Noodle shop & wait for them to be cooked!

1 packet dried soba noodles   **
5 cups finely chopped asian cabbage
1 large carrot, julienne sliced
1 onion, chopped into slices
2cm piece fresh ginger, grated
200g marinated tofu - sliced (You can marinate your own if you prefer) 
1 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
- sesame seeds to serve

**You may be able to find egg-free fresh soba noodles, but I haven't been able to.
Soak the soba noodles in boiling water for 5 minutes whilst you prepare the stir-fry. 
 Heat a wok til hot. Add the cabbage, onion & ginger.
Add the carrot and continue to cook until the cabbage has cooked down quite significantly.
Saute the tofu in a frying pan until lightly browned.
Add the noodles and the tofu to the cabbage mix.
Pour over the rice wine vinegar & the soy sauce.
Stir to combine well & serve in a noodle bowl with sesame seeds on top.

Same recipe different noodle....
 This recipe also works great with hokkien noodles!
