Pork, Asparagus, and Soba From 'The VB6 Cookbook'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

Despite his dinnertime freedom, Mark Bittman doesn't launch into a carnivorous feast come six o'clock. Instead, he incorporates meat into meals that are equally heavy in vegetables, fruit, and whole grains. Take this soba noodle dish for example. While it doesn't shy away from meat (hello, pork shoulder), it does incorporate a generous amount of asparagus in addition to whole grain soba noodles. More

Kamo Nanban Soba From 'Japanese Soul Cooking'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 6 comments

Tadashi Ono and Harris Salat proclaim that this duck and soba dish in their new cookbook, Japanese Soul Cooking, is one of their favorites. What's not to like? Hot soba noodles are served in a warm dashi and soy broth with slivers of perfectly cooked duck breast and green onions fried in duck fat. A final dollop of wasabi is a key accent, brightening the flavor of the rich bird. Best of all, it's an impressive-looking dish that isn't much harder than boiling a pot of noodles. More

Make-Ahead Peanut Soba Noodles with Tofu and Pickled Bean Sprouts

Serious Eats Suzanne Lehrer 3 comments

As something of a seasoned peanut noodle slurper, I wanted my version to be spot on, and up to snuff. The sauce is a balance of salty, sharp, sweet and rich, and just hovering between liquid and paste for the perfect amount of "noodle cling". I threw in some easy pickled bean sprouts for kick (and crunch) and some simply seared tofu to make this a well-rounded lunch box. Just try not to slurp too loudly. More

Serious Eats Jennifer Segal 19 comments

This main-dish-salad is everything you want a summertime meal to be: flavorful, light and totally satisfying. Shredded roasted chicken and soba noodles are tossed in a punchy soy, ginger and peanut dressing, then brightened up with a colorful mix of red peppers, scallions and cilantro. Chopped peanuts and sesame seeds add welcome crunch. More

Dinner Tonight: Cold Soba Salad with Peppers and Ponzu Dressing

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 8 comments

I don't always have the best luck with cold soba. At its worst, the soba comes out gummy and water-logged. The key is to start with a very simple dish like this one. The soba is boiled, drained in a colander, then rinsed under cold water. Just make sure to let it drain again after the rinse—this solved most of my issues. Some sauteed shrimp or tofu would help bulk this out if you were really hungry, but it's absolutely perfect for those in need of a light summer meal. More

Cook the Book: Black Sesame Otsu

Serious Eats Caroline Russock Post a comment

A bowl of cold soba noodles are perfect hot weather eating, as we established yesterday. Mild and nutty, hearty and cooling all at once, we could really eat the noodles all summer long with no complaints. Heidi Swanson's version of soba from Super Natural Every Day dresses quick-cooked and quick-chilled buckwheat noodles with a nutty dressing of black sesame, sunflower seeds, and pine nuts sweetened with sugar and spiced with cayenne.

Dinner Tonight: Hot Soba

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 9 comments

Ever since I learned that dashi could be prepared quickly, I've been on a huge Japanese noodle kick. I tackled udon early on, and even put together a pretty ridiculous batch of ramen. Now with high spirits I've decided to face my fear of soba. More

Cook the Book: Soba Noodles with Eggplant and Mango

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 5 comments

This particular plate, a cool starter or perfect spring lunch, marries ingredients that seemingly have nothing to do with one another, namely mango and eggplant. But when the eggplant is charred and mixed with the nutty soba noodles and the tangy dressing, the mango brings the dish together with its sweet bursts of fruitiness boosting the salty, sour qualities of the noodles.

Eat For Eight Bucks: Ginger-Soy Chicken Noodle Soup

Serious Eats Phoebe Lapine and Cara Eisenpress 4 comments

Last fall, during the first bout of cold weather the season had to offer, Cara wrote about this Asian Noodle Soup. It was chicken-free and packed with good veggies—cabbage, carrot, peppers—and fresh cilantro. But should we call it Asian? That was a heated point of contention. More

Dinner Tonight: Spicy, Sweet and Vinegary Noodles (Bibim Guksu)

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 2 comments

This recipe for bibim guksu from My Korean Kitchen is the perfect spring transition dish. The lettuce, cabbage, carrot, and cucumber all provide a cooling crunch. The sauce is bracing and spicy, but it's balanced with both honey and brown sugar, and the soba acts as a nice base for all these flavors. The result is a shock to all the senses, yet still oddly refreshing. More

Dinner Tonight: Minced Pork with Soba Noodles

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 8 comments

The ingredient list was short and concise, and yet I was detecting all these other flavors that I couldn't place. It wasn't spicy or sweet—the taste was more complex and haunting, almost like a smoky aroma. It was addicting to say the least, but where did it come from? The secret is the high heat. More

Dinner Tonight: Soba Noodles with Asparagus, Red Pepper, and Tofu

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 5 comments

I picked this recipe from the Perfect Pantry mainly because of the sauce, which somehow manages to successfully combine soy sauce, hoisin, Sriracha, lime juice, and agave nectar. (I only stash the last one in my pantry for cocktails.) But... More
