Ginger Sesame Veg Soba

Soba noodles can show you a different look with a variety of toppings, and entertain your tongue with a variety of types of sauce. Sometimes toppings are tempura, vegetables, meat, eggs…the choice is definitely unlimited!

Also you can play with sauce too! Usually soba sauce isn’t quite vegetarian/vegan friendly because they use bonito stock to make the soup flavorful, but if you switch the sauce to be refreshing herb flavor of ginger and sesame, it can be the food that everyone can enjoy without caring for ingredients. 

Do you want something to attract both your eyes and taste buds? Let’s cook!

<Cooking Tips>

If you are planning to eat them later, store sauce and soba separately. If you combine them and keep them even in a fridge, soba noodle’s texture will be soggy and ruin the whole flavor.

Mmm, good! Bitter radish leaves give an accent and mellow bean curd wraps the whole flavor to be one! Gather a variety of toppings, and be a sobartender!

      1. I now realize the difference between tofu and ban curd. It’s great to discover a new ingredient. I’ll look for it. 🙂
