Simone Gibson - "Sweet Ginger Soba Noodles"


20130908-143946.jpgI was grocery shopping a few days ago and found spelt soba noodles! I can’t explain the excitement that came over me, because the love that I have for soba noodles. I couldn’t wait to whip up these healthy noodles! I’ve had soba noodles many times before and I wanted to try something different since I was making it myself.

Ok let me share with you all one of the world most delicious and easy recipe. Okay, I might be running out a little here but in my world this is in my top 10. David Chang has the most amazing recipe for soba noodles, but trust me, I’m sure my noodles was as good as his, in my humble opinion. This delightful Ginger Scallion Sauce, was amazeballs and so I made over and over again. Trust me, you will enjoy it!

Salt and Pepper as per taste.
Lime wedges optional.
For Sweet Ginger Scallion Sauce-
Scallions – 1 ½ cup finely chopped.
Ginger – 2 Tbsp minced.
Cilantro – 1/4 cup chopped.
Sesame oil/ grape seed oil/ any neutral oil – 2-3 Tbsp.
Chili – 2 tsp.
Soy sauce – 1Tbsp.
Rice wine vinegar – 2 Tbsp.
Honey – 2 Tbsp.
Salt – 1 tsp, as soy sauce is salty too so be careful with the salt.

Mix all the ingredients for Sweet Ginger Scallion sauce in the bowl, check for the seasoning. Keep it aside for 10 -15 minutes for the flavors to develop.
Boil the soba noodles as per the instruction on the package, If you need them cold drain well with the cold water once they are cooked or just drain the water in which they boiled if you like them hot.
Add the sauce, and toss the noodles well, check for the seasoning one last time. Sprinkle lime juice if you like and also if you like add some cucumber, give a final toss and
