There’s nothing like cold noodle dishes in Summer. There are so many great cold noodle recipes on my blog to enjoy during summertime. I am excited to add this one to the list.
I am in love with this delicious noodle dish. I will have to admit, though, that I never really liked soba or this type of noodle dish when I was growing up in Korea. I always preferred salty and spicy noodles to savory goodness like this.
As I get older, I find myself appreciating more authentic and savory flavors of soba noodles. It’s healthy. It’s super good for you. And the broth is pretty good, too. Unfortunately, I have yet to learn how to make good homemade broth…
But until then, this good bottle of soba broth would work.
Combine 1/2 cup sauce with 1 1/2 cups cold water and stir in chopped green onions.
Top the noodles with some dried seaweed, more green onions, and cucumbers. And tada- a crummy soba noodle bowl!
Soba Noodle Bowl
- 1 bunch soba noodles (regular or memil soba)
- ½ cup bottled broth for soba noodles (concentrated)
- 1½ cups water
- 2 green onions, chopped
- ¼ cucumber, sliced then cut in matchsticks
- handful dried seaweed
- toasted sesame seeds, to sprinkle
- Cook noodles according to package instructions. Cool noodles under cold water for several minutes until the noodles are chilled.
- In bowl, combine broth and water and chopped green onions together. Stir.
- Place two equal portions of the noodles in separate bowls, pour broth, and top it with cucumbers, dried seaweeds, and sesame seeds.
I. Heart. Kimchi Bokeumbap (김치볶음밥) and I crave it all the time.
When I first came to the States over 10 years ago, when I had no idea where to find descent Korean food or Korean grocery stores, I would always daydream about Korean food, especially Kimchi Bokeumbap. [click to continue…]
Yay, it’s Friday! I am pretty excited about this weekend…
Not that I have spectacular plans or anything. My husband is taking our five year old to a father-son campout tonight… so I’ll be with my two year old alone. It’s kind of exciting to spend alone time with him, though. [click to continue…]
Just like any other Koreans, I love Bulgogi.
There are so many dishes that use Bulgogi in Korea — and this is one of very many. [click to continue…]
I had to bookmark this recipe as soon as I saw it on Stumble Upon. My family is crazy about pizza… but I have to admit, I am somewhat afraid of pizza… As delicious as they are, the calories in them are scary and I always feel guilty after eating them. [click to continue…]
Did everyone have a wonderful Mother’s day? I sure did. I seriously have the best husband and the best sons. They are so sweet and I love them dearly. My husband spoiled me all day yesterday with all kinds of delicious food. He made Fettuccine Alfredo with grilled chicken and shrimp for dinner and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Everything was so yummy and I woke up this morning, still feeling full from last night’s dinner! [click to continue…]
When I feel lazy to do a lot of work in the kitchen, I always turn to simple recipes that takes ten minutes or less.
And this recipe is one of them. [click to continue…]
