Soba Noodles with Vegetables

Soba are Japanese noodles made from a combination of buckwheat and wheat flour. Look for them in the Asian-foods section of the supermarket or at an Asian grocery store. They have a dark brownish gray color and a slightly nutty flavor. If you can't find shiitake mushrooms, use an 8-ounce package of sliced button mushrooms.
