Mealthy Tip

Crysanthemum leaves and shimeji mushrooms are available at specialty and Asian markets. If you can't find chrysanthemum, use spinach, watercress, or bok choy instead. Fresh shiitakes are a good substitute for the shimeji mushrooms. The noodles can be made up to three days ahead.

I wanted to make a really cool, special Asian dish. Couldn't find the leaves, so used bok choy as the tip suggests. I found the mushrooms at my local farmer's market. Delicious. Will make again and maybe add chicken.

I couldn't find shimeji or chrysanthemum which was a bummer so I used spinach and shiitake instead. I really like cold soba, and I enjoyed this dish overall. The soy sauce and sesame oil mixture was yummy, and added good flavor.

I overcooked this chrysanthemum greens on accident and they turned out slightly mushy. Still, I loved the classic Japanese flavors. Shimeji mushrooms are very delicious, so I'm disappointed that I wasn't able to find them at my store.

I made this ahead of time to take for lunch the next day. I also used shiitakes, my favorite. Super savory and good when you warm it up too.

I used spinach and shiitakes with the cold soba noodles for my weekly meal prep. It was pretty tasty, glad I tried it out. Next time I'm going to try to find an Asian market so I can get Chrysanthemum and Shimeji.
