Last night was hubs’ birthday and since we went away for the weekend, we decided to stay in for dinner. I wanted to make something healthy, delicious, and something we hadn’t had before. We both love Japanese cooking, so I thought of making these soba noodles. I originally found the recipe on Pinterest, which I’ll repost below, along with the few modifications I made to the recipe. We both loved this dinner. The noodles were incredibly flavourful. I reheated the leftovers for lunch today, and they were still excellent. Looks like we found a new side dish to join the repertoire!
I did modify the recipe slightly. I skipped the Cilantro (not a fan!) and the Chili Oil, I used 2 tbsp of soy sauce and only one of the rice wine vinegar (a flavour I have found to be a little too strong for me in larger quanities), and skipped adding any salt because of the extra soy sauce. I stuck with 2 tbsp of sesame oil instead of 3. I found the sauce to be really flavourful and delicious. It didn’t feel greasy or salty, or even overly sweet. It was just perfect for us this way.
I served the noodles alongside green beans cooked in a bit of olive oil, and a simple pan-fried salmon prepared in lime juice and salt, and sprinkled with black sesame seeds.Pin It
