King Soba sent us an array of their noodles, this recipe used their organic and fair trade vermicelli noodles made out of...brown rice, how cool right? And all you have to do is give them a quick soak and they're ready for use.
The dish at the restaurant had bean sprouts in it, bean sprouts have been getting a bad rap for some reason lately. So instead I substituted julienned zucchini which kind of mimics a bean sprout...
