For a simple meal this was amazingly good. When I roasted all these veggies I thought that I would have a some left over the next few days, but nah. I only had a little bowl left over for lunch the next day. It was a hit with the family.
You can use any veggies you have on hand to roast. I picked these veggies their color and texture.
I have to admit though the stars of the show are the yuba noodles and the dipping sauce with the balsamic and date syrup with a little bit of sesame oil. Dang….so freaking good.
It’s my first time using yuba, which is thin sheets of soy skin. I cut them up into thin strips and made “noodles” with them. My husband loved this little experiment of mine.
I’m just going to keep this one short so you can get to shopping so you can make this meal. Oh and if you can’t find yuba sheets you can replace it with soba or ramen noodles.

Roast the Kabocha Squash First
Pre-Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place the squash wedges on a roasting tray in one layer. On both sides drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Place in the oven for 20 minutes and then take out of the oven and flip all the wedges and bake for another 20 minutes. Set aside and roast the other vegetables.
Roast the other Veggies
Place all the other veggies on a large baking tray season with the remaining olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Massage all the seasoning in and bake for 20 minutes. Plate the squash and veggies in a large platter.
Make the Yuba Noodles
While the veggies are roasting make the noodles. In a large frying pan place the noodles, garlic, ginger, miso and sesame oil and saute on medium heat. Cook for 10 minutes to infuse and lock in the flavors. Place the noodles in a bowl and garnish with some furikake flakes. You can replace the yuba with soba or even ramen noodles.
