Soba noodles are just the best. A really decent, somewhat nutty flavour. They actually cook pretty quickly too. On really hot summer days I tend to only make recipes that require very little effort. On those days, I don’t really feel like eating a lot. That kind of explains my lack of posting throughout the month of June. I’m trying to make up for it this month! Anyway, the following recipe requires very minimal effort and it’s filling without that ill feeling that sometimes happens on hot days. It came from a local newspaper, though apparently it’s from Bon Appetit and can be found HERE.
It was ridiculously easy. Whisk together your rice wine vinegar, vegetable oil, Sriracha, and toasted sesame oil and add some salt & pepper. Chop up some veggies to add to your bowls. I used sliced radishes, bell peppers, and cucumbers. Make sure you chop them up fairly small. Add your veggies to your liquid ingredients and toss to coat. Cook your noodles according to the package. When they’re done, run them under cold water to cool them off. Add the noodles to your veggies. Add chopped cilantro, spring onions, and sesame seeds. Done! Delicious.
