5 from 1 reviews


  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1/4 cup green onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 2 cups rhubarb
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried chilies, crushed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 oz udon or soba noodles
  • 2 handfuls of kale
  • cilantro and lime wedges for topping


  1. In a sauce pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add in onions and ginger, cooking for 1-2 minutes. Next, stir in rhubarb, water, honey, and chilies. Let simmer until rhubarb has broken down and sauce comes together. Add a pinch of salt and taste to adjust seasonings (if you want it sweeter, add more honey or if you want it spicier, add more chiles.)
  2. Prepare noodles according to directions, drain, and set aside.
  3. Shred kale and place in a large bowl. Once noodles and rhubarb are done, toss with kale to slightly wilt. Top with cilantro and lime wedges to serve.
