Quick and easy Blue Oyster Sesame Garlic Soba Noodles.
Soba noodles, made
from buckwheat flour, are traditionally used in Japanese cuisine for
their delicious flavor and nutritional excellence. High in protein,
fiber, and essential amino acids, soba noodles make a perfect light
summer noodle dish. The meaty texture of the savory oyster mushrooms
really complete this satisfying and delicious meal.

5 ounces oyster mushrooms
6 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons agave or 6 tablespoons sugar
