Vegan Soba Noodles

HealthyVegan's picture
This is a nice soba noodles recipe. I was first introduced to soba noodles by my sister-in-law, who loves to make them with just tamari and green onion for seasoning. I like to use them in all kinds of healthy vegan recipes, especially fresh salads with a flavorful dressing. Soba noodles are made with buckwheat, which is gluten-free and can be found in the asian section of the grocery store, or Chinatown.
Ingredients
  Lemon 1 , zested and juiced
  Lime 1 , zested and juiced
  Orange 1 , zested and juiced
  Rice vinegar/Apple cider vinegar 2 Tablespoon
  Miso 1 Tablespoon
  Toasted sesame oil 1 Teaspoon
  Soba noodles 150 Gram (Buckwheat)
  Cucumber 1 , julienned
  Carrots 2 , julienned
  Avocado 1 , sliced
  Green onions 2 , chopped
  Toasted sesame seeds 1 Tablespoon
Directions

1.Make the dressing by whisking the fruit zest and juices, vinegar, miso and sesame oil together in a small bowl. The longer this sits, the better it will be so make it ahead of time if you can.
2.To cook the noodles, bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil and add the noodles. Stir them occasionally to keep them from sticking to each other and the bottom. When they are just cooked, strain them and toss them with a small amount of untoasted sesame oil if you wish.
3.While the noodles cook, prepare the vegetables. The secret to getting a good julienne cut (think matchsticks) is to have a sharp knife. Lightly toast the sesame seeds in a toaster oven or oven at 300-350 degrees F for more flavor, and toast a bunch at once to not waste the oven time and have some on hand for other things. They will only take a few minutes, and you need to keep an eye on these little guys because they will burn quickly. Burnt seeds not only taste bad, but can be unhealthy to eat as well.
4.Serve the noodles hot or chilled, topped with the fresh veggies, dressing and sprinkled with sesame seeds. I hope you enjoy this soba noodles recipe, the latest of my healthy vegan recipes.

Loved the main idea, but found the citrus was more than enough acid, so didn't use the vinegar. Also needed to add a bit more sesame oil to balance the taste.
