Soba Noodle Salad Recipe

1 Comment



I guess you all know soba noodles; those instant noodles that only need some hot water and “tadaah!” you have a meal. But if you know the difference between fresh and instant noodle soup, you can imagine how much better freshly made soba noodles are (I´m not talking about making noodles from flour, but about using normal not-instant soba noodles to make a soba noodle salad). Here´s a recipe for a refreshing and delicious soba noodle salad with the typical soba-seasoning. It´s perfect for the bento box (that´s how I used it) or simply as a main or side dish. Enjoy!

Ingredients (serves 2 as a main or 3-4 as a side dish):

4 bundles of buckwheat soba noodles

2 bunches of coriander, finely chopped

1 minced spring onion

1 tbsp black or white sesame (what you prefer)

1/2 teasp. shredded ginger

4-6 tbsp soy sauce

1 teasp. sweet soy sauce

1 teasp. honey

1 teasp. sesame oil

1 tbsp lime juice

evtl. toppings like sliced tomato, bamboo shoots etc.



Buckwheat soba noodles; you find them in every asia store

1. Cook the soba noodles as described on the packaging; make them more “al dente” than too soft.

2. Take the noodles out of water and put them into a bowl.

3. Mix all seasonings expect of the spring onion.

4. Let it cool down, then garnish with spring onion. That´s it 🙂


Usually, soba noodles are packed in bundles.
