So(ba) Lovely

We’ve been on a bit of a Japanese food kick lately, and one of my personal new favorites is soba noodles.

The other day we made a nice, quick lunch by cooking the soba noodles along with some chopped shiitake mushrooms, draining them and rinsing in cold water, and topping with sesame seeds and chopped green onions, then adding some soba noodle soup base (we bought pre-made soup base, but you could make it yourself and just keep it around). In this case, the soup base is really just a thin sauce to coat the noodles, not to make it like an actual soup.

This was really tasty, and made for a nice, quick, 10 minute meal.
