Simple Soba Noodles
8-12 oz. buckwheat soba noodles
1 tbs. rice vinegar or wine
2 tbs. sesame oil
2 tbs. soy sauce
1 bunch (about 6-8) chopped green onions
1/2 cup of shredded carrots
1 bunch of chopped cilantro
1 tbs. of toasted sesame seeds
salt to taste
Cook noodles according to package in boiling water, for no longer than 6-8 minutes. Immediately drain noodles in a strainers and run cold water over them. Next add the remaining ingredients and salt to taste.
Serve right away or chilled - I prefer the latter.
Add tofu seasoned anyway you like or try Whole Foods Golden Sesame Tofu and any Sweet Chili variety.
Another great addition is a few slices of avocado and cucumbers. Yum- yum.
