Step 1: the vegetables
Peel and cut the sweet potato into fries, steam it (the flesh should remain firm). Peel and slice the ginger into thin strips. Cut the rest of the vegetables into medium-sized pieces. In a wok, heat 2 tbsp. at s. of olive oil with minced ginger and turmeric powder. When the oil is very hot, add the chopped vegetables and the blanched sweet potato. Salt. Sauté for 15 to 20 minutes, until all the vegetables are cooked, soft, without being too brown. Do not hesitate to add a few spoonfuls of water during cooking, the taste of the vegetables will only be better.

In a bowl, season the noodles (cold) with 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, 1 teaspoon of soy sauce and 1 teaspoon of rice vinegar. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. If you prefer to eat the soba hot, do not pass them under water and only accommodate them with a little soy sauce.
