Soba with Cilantro and Scallions

This is a quick, easy and super satisfying noodle dish. For supper, I like to serve it alongside simple roasted salmon. As a light lunch, I top it with a bunch of crunchy cucumber and creamy avocado and I'm as happy as can be.

Play with this recipe...add as much ginger, garlic and cilantro as you like. And throw in leftover shredded chicken, beef or whatever's in the fridge to make it more substantial. If you can't find soba noodles (though most grocery stores will have them) feel free to use any type of pasta.

Soba with Cilantro and Scallions

1 lb soba noodles, cooked according to directions on package
1/2 cup soy sauce
juice of 2 limes
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 T ginger, minced
1 T vegetable oil
2 t toasted sesame oil
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
3 scallions, sliced
garnish with diced cucumber or avocado
  • In a small bowl, whisk together soy, lime juice, garlic, ginger and oils. Pour over cooked soba, add cilantro and scallions and toss to combine.
  • Enjoy!
