  • 6 ounces soba noodles
  • 1-1⁄2 cups blueberries, divided
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1⁄2 cup chopped fresh basil, divided
  • Toasted pine nuts and shredded
  • coconut (optional)
  • 1⁄4 cup Hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  1. Cook soba noodles until al dente according to package directions. Drain; set aside.
