sesame soba noodles


This is a dish that was once a Whole Foods food-bar item, as well. I have converted it to include more veggies. All of the kids love this dish and it is perfect picnic food. It is served as a cold salad so there is no problem with keeping it warm.

I added broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers and scallions to the Whole Foods 'recipe.' The dressing is a simple vinaigrette using seasoned brown rice vinegar (different from rice vinegar because of the addition of sugar), tamari (skip it and add salt for soy-free) and roasted sesame seed oil.

Sprinkling some sesame seeds on top rounds this dish out.

Very tasty and simple to make.

Cost Breakdown:
broccoli, cauliflower, pepper, green onion: $3
noodles: $3
oil, vinegar, tamari: $1
Total to make 5 servings:


  1. I'm looking for simple yet tasty a sort of revert back to the basics. This is exactly what I had in mind.
