Cold Sesame Noodles
Bon Appetit shared Elyssa Goldberg's suggestions for how to make an easy bowl of sesame noodles. She basically gave the backbone and left the recipe up to your own personal tastebuds. The ingredients below show how I made it but the instructions are taken from her article.. (The link for her article is in the blog.)
  • 8 Ounce package of soba noodles
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger
  • 1 Tbsp fresh garlic, chopped
  • 1½ tsp sambal
  • 2 Tbsp Light soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp mirin
  • 2 Tbsp Yuzu (or lime juice)
  • ½ tsp of red pepper flakes
  • 2 green onions sliced, separating the white and green parts
  • sesame oil
  • a couple of Tbsp sesame seeds and noriflakes
  1. Cook noodles per package directions.
  2. Strain noodles well and transfer to a bowl.
  3. Drizzle with enough toasted sesame oil to make it shine. Put in fridge.
  4. In a small bowl, add ginger, garlic, samba, soy sauce, mirin, yuzu, red pepper flakes and white parts of the green onion.
  5. Whisk together.
  6. Once the noodles are REALLY chilled, add about half the sauce with the green part of the onions, your sesame seeds and the nori flakes.
  7. Coat the noodles.
  8. Keep adding the sauce until each noodle is covered.
  9. Sprinkle with extra sesame seeds if you like. Serve.
