Camp-style soba noodles

camp dinner!

I couldn’t help feeling a bit like a dick when I served this up in our tent with a glass of shiraz and linen napkins (kidding about the napkins). The 3-person family next door staying in a 2-man tent were eating spaghetti and tomato sauce from a billy. But then this is what out tent looked like:

the Taj Mahal

So we weren’t exactly roughin’ it. That doesn’t change the fact that these noodles were awesome.

Camp-style soba noodles (serves 2)


  • 90g soba noodles
  • Dash olive oil
  • 250g button mushrooms, sliced (mixed asian mushrooms would be even better, but we were camping)
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped
  • Big handful snowpeas, topped, tailed and snapped into halves
  • 1/2 bag baby spinach, roughly chopped (or 2 blocks (~60g)¬†frozen spinach – trust me, the stuff’s not as bad as it looks)

Asian dressing

  • 1/2tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp peanut oil
  • 1tbsp soy sauce
  • 1tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2tsp chilli (or more if you’re a badass)


  1. Prepare noodles according to packet instructions.
  2. Heat olive oil and saute mushrooms until well browned and smelling mushroomy.
  3. Add garlic and saute for a few more seconds.
  4. Add dressing and snowpeas and stir-fry until snowpeas are bright green.
  5. Add the spinach and drained noodles and stir fry until spinach is just wilted (if using frozen, add with garlic instead so it defrosts).
