Weekend Cooking – Sesame Noodles

October 28, 2012 Weekend Cooking 17

are the bomb, y’all.

I have been looking for a good noodle recipe for what feels like forever. And I *think* I’ve finally found it. It needs a couple of tweaks… (I’m not a huge fan of rice wine vinegar. It doesn’t call for garlic. And it can away use more soy sauce!) but we’re getting there. Here is the original recipe, as I first made it, which is pretty darn close to perfect.

Also, if you make it, lemme know!

Soba Noodles with Sweet Ginger Scallion Sauce.

by www.simplyreem.com

Recipe-

Ingredients-

  • Soba noodles – 1 9oz packet.
  • Salt and Pepper as per taste.
  • Sesame seeds – 2 Tbsp lightly toasted.
  • Cucumber thinly julienne optional.
  • Lime wedges optional.

For Sweet Ginger Scallion Sauce-

  • Scallions – 1 ½ cup finely chopped.
  • Ginger – 2 Tbsp minced.
  • Cilantro – ¼ cup chopped.
  • Sesame oil/ grape seed oil/ any neutral oil – 2-3 Tbsp.
  • Chili oil – 2 tsp.
  • Soy sauce – 1Tbsp.
  • Rice wine vinegar – 2 Tbsp.
  • Honey – 2 Tbsp.
  • Salt – 1 tsp, as soy sauce is salty too so be careful with the salt.
  • Black pepper – 1 tsp.

Method-

  • Mix all the ingredients for Sweet Ginger Scallion sauce in the bowl, check for the seasoning. Keep it aside for 10 -15 minutes for the flavors to develop.
  • Boil the soba noodles as per the instruction on the package, If you need them cold drain well with the cold water once they are cooked or just drain the water in which they boiled if you like them hot.
  • Add the sauce, sesame seeds and toss the noodles well, check for the seasoning one last time. Sprinkle lime juice if you like and also if you like add some julienne cucumber, give a final toss and Enjoy!!!

    I love soba noodles. I’ve made different versions of this dish, but I don’t remember one with honey. I’ll have to give that try.

      The only kind our supermarket carries are whole wheat ones. WTH? They are *okay* but I’d really like to find the real thing.

      The honey balances nicely with the chili oil. I looooves it.

    I think I’m going to try this recipe today to use up a few scallions and cucumbers I have in the fridge before we get hit with Hurricane Sandy and maybe lose our power. I don’t have soba noodles, so will have to substitute spaghetti.

    Yum yum yum yum. I’m determined to make more Asian dishes at home and this looks like it’d do the trick!

    This sounds delicious – I’ve never seen a sesame noodles recipe that uses honey, either. It’s definitely a recipe I want to try! Soba noodles are so good!
