Sesame Soba Noodles (Adapted from Back to Her Roots)
9.5 oz soba noodles
4 green onions
1/2 c cilantro
1/4 c sesame oil
2 T rice wine vinegar
2 T honey
2 T tahini
2 T toasted sesame seeds (optional)
Cook noodles until al dente (lean towards the firmer side) in salted water. Drain and rinse in cold water. In a large bowl whisk together the remaining ingredients. Toss with noodles.
I didn't have sesame seeds so I left them out - no biggie. It was still delicious without them. This is a quick and easy dish and the leftovers are great for lunch.
Let me tell you what happened when I went to boil the noodle. They came in a packet like dried spaghetti comes in. I slice off the end of the packet and dumped them in the water. Now I've bought them before and they've been in a box and usually they have a paper band around the middle. Well I didn't realize that these also had the band in the middle until they fell into the water. So I had to fish them out and remove the bands. No big deal but I was making a double batch so I had a second packet of noodles to cook. Needless to say some of my noodles were a little more cooked than what I wanted!
