Cold Soba Noodle Salad
Soba noodles are wonderful and really good for you – hot or cold. Here, I tossed the al dente cold noodles with a bright combo of soy, sesame and herbs. Lovely on its own or accompanying grilled salmon.
8 ounces buckwheat soba
2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons light agave nectar
2 teaspoons mirin
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1/4 cup neutral oil (grapeseed)
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds or Eden Shake (a prepared mixture of sesame seeds and seaweed)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
4 scallions, thinly sliced
1. Cook the soba in boiling water, according to the package directions (about 6 minutes). Immediately rinse the soba under cold water.
2. Meanwhile, whisk together the soy sauce, agave, mirin, vinegar and oils in a large bowl.
3. Toss the cold soba with the dressing and mix in the sesame seeds, cilantro and scallions.
This quick and easy hummus is a great base recipe, and you probably already have all the ingredients in your kitchen. It's great as is, but feel free to dress it up with different spices, blend in roasted beets, or top with toasted pine nuts and chile oil.
