I really wanted this to be better. It was pretty bland. We added all kinds of sauce to our bowls at the table. The noodles were sticky. There must be a trick to soba noodles that I don't know.0 Helpful
Ok for what it was. Kind of bland/boring. My 19 month old ate it. 4 year old did not. I ended up using sriracha and additional aminos to kick it up. I did appreciate how quick this was to throw together though.0 Helpful
Good and easy meal. Used pre-shredded carrots and red and green cabbage. Also added some edamame since we didn’t have enough shredded chicken.0 Helpful
I didn't have tofu so added edamame and used broccoli instead of cole slaw mix. I also added peanut butter to the sauce. Cam eout really well.0 Helpful
