Noodles is my favorite food, period. I love it in every wy possible. Noodle salads, stir fries, in soups, hot, cold, rice noodles, udon noodles, ramen, Pho…. well you get the point. And soba noodles is my second favorite after Udon. Not everyone likes soba because of its strong earthy flavor of buckwheat. But I adore buckwheat, practically grown on it back in Russia, lol.
This is one of the quickest meals I make with my soba noodles, and one of my favorite.
- 1 pack 250gm soba noodles
- 4 small heads of bock choi
- 4 handfuls of shredded white cabbage
- Chinese chives
- 2 avocados
- sesame seeds
- 2tbsp sesame paste
- 1 clove garlic
- thumb size piece of ginger
- 1 1/2 tsp molasses
- 1tbs rice vinegar
- 1tbsp soy sauce
- 1tsp sesame oil
- 1tsp sriracha or fresh chili to taste
- 1/4cup cold water
Boil the noodles according to the instructions on the package. Don’t over cooked it, nothing is worse than soggy overcoooked soba. Give it a quick rinse under running cold water, drain.
Steam bock choi and shred the cabbage and herbs. Slice avocados.
To make the dressing, place all the ingredients in a blender and blend it until creamy and smooth.
To arrange the bowls, divide everything into 4 bowls, placing noodles in the middle and bock choi, cabbage and avocado around it. drizzle sesame dressing and sprinkle some sesame seeds and herbs over it. Dig in!!
