Soba Soba

20140405-174348.jpgSoba noodle, Japanese word for buckwheat noodle, is my favourite summer day food, because they can be served nice and cold, and does not need any oil in cooking them! Soba noodle is a very versatile ingredient that can be served hot as well in soups and stir-fries.

How to cook soba noodles:
1. Place soba noodles in boiling water
2. Cook for 4 minutes, drain, rinse under cold water , drain again

What to season soba noodles:
I use soy sauce dilute with water (50:50), sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, with 1/2 teaspoon of mayonnaise on top of soba when served

What I recommend to serve with Soba noodles:
– Salad leaves or cucumber
– Stir fried snow peas
– Sweet Japanese egg omelette
– Salmon (smoked or raw or panfried) or Chicken

Have this on a warm summery day. You’d happily enjoy lunch/dinner without sweating your back off 🙂
