Tastes great (needs a bit more soy sauce in my opinion) but I really can't work out the calories here. Having put it through my calorie counting app it came out at nearly 600kcal per person! Even if I had found the highest calorie noodles I could (I didn't) this wouldn't account for the difference. Won't do it with noodles in the future, IF I do it again.

It was OK. Always nice to be eating so many different vegetables but the flavours were very mild and not particularly interesting. Ended up adding more tamari to the bowls to make it taste of something.
