Soba noodles with sesame seeds - a super quick meal

Soba noodles with sesame seeds / Soba com gergelim

This is such an easy dish and it tastes so great that I had to share it with you – perfect for those nights when all you need is a shower, a quick dinner, your couch and Detective Stabler, I mean, Law&Order SVU on TV. :)

Soba noodles with sesame seeds
from Nigella Fresh

75g sesame seeds
250g soba noodles
2 teaspoons rice vinegar (mirin)
5 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons sesame oil
5 spring onions

Toast the sesame seeds in a dry pan over high heat until they look golden brown; transfer to a bowl.
Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add some salt. Put in the soba noodles and cook them for about 6 minutes (or according to packet instructions) until they are tender but not mushy. Drain then refresh under cold water to stop them from cooking any further.
In the bowl you are going to serve them in, mix the vinegar, soy sauce, honey and oil. Then finely slice the spring onions and put them into the bowl with the cooled, drained noodles and mix together thoroughly before adding the sesame seeds and tossing again.

Serves 2

I love dishes that you can make on the go. We have tons of noodles but I never know what to do with them, love this!

I love this recipe and I love Nigella. I could eat this every night for dinner, there's something so satisfying about a bowl of noodles.

This looks great, and sounds like something I can whip up for myself in minutes! (since I've all the ingredients lying around my pantry) :)

HAHAHA, you mean that show isn't called "Detective Stabler"? XD

Anyway, your recipe looks deliciously simple and more comforting than throwing something in the microwave.
