On the advice of my friend Missy, we gave this a shot for MMM. I don’t know where it has been all our lives, because it’s awesome. Despite the fact that we have the Momofuku cookbook and never saw this, I’m glad it has been pointed out now! You can do anything with this base sauce and noodles. We did broccoli and green peas. Would have been great with an egg too, and many non-veggie possibilities as well. Definitely a favorite of mine now! I served this with Sichuan Green Beans.
- soba noodles
- 2.5 cups sliced scallions
- 1/2 cup minced ginger (or the stuff in the tube…perfect for a sauce)
- 1/4 cup neutral oil
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 3/4 teaspoon sherry vinegar
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
Combine scallions, ginger, oil, vinegar, salt and soy sauce and let stand 15 minutes.
Boil a pot of water. Cook soba noodles according to directions – drain and rinse.
Stir fry any side add-ins.
Toss noodles with sauce and add-ins and serve.
