Simple Soba Noodles
When I feel lazy to cook up a fancy dinner, or when I don’t feel lazy enough to just make a simple sandwich for lunch, I cook simple noodle dishes like this. This is a simple soba noodle dish that I love. It’s so quick and easy to make it and I’m quite addicted to the simplicity of it.
I used Momil Guksu (the kind that is used to make zaru soba). I am in love with the texture of this kind of soba and I like it better than the regular soba (buckwheat) noodles.
And the ingredients you need for the sauce are easily found at any grocery stores in America. It’s quite tasty with sesame oil, soy sauce, and some vinegar… also with a little bit of Korean pepper flakes. I can’t go without some kind of spice in my Korean food… I just love little heat in my food.
- 2 bundles Momil Guksu (zaru soba noodles or soba noodles)
- 4 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
- ½ tablespoon Korean red pepper flakes
- 1 dried and toasted seaweed, cut very thin (optional)
- chopped green onions (optional)
- Cook soba according to package instructions. Drain water and rinse in cold water until cooled. Add the olive oil and sesame oil to the noodles and stir well.
- Make sauce by combining the soy sauce, vinegar, sesame seeds, and red pepper flakes. Pour the sauce to the noodles and stir well until the noodles are coated with the sauce evenly.
- Place the noodles on plates and top them with seaweed and green onions if desired.
