Bento 57: Soba Salad

August 8, 2010
tags: ,

This is what I made sometime last week when I was feeling very lazy. There are days when I don’t mind spending a long time over the kitchen making lunch, but most of the time I’m just plain lazy. Soba is excellent for days like these as it takes only 5 minutes to cook. Dressed with a dipping sauce, it makes for a good wholesome meal. I love it how soba goes so well with a variety of side dishes as well, making it easy to mix and match.

I mixed in some wakame with the soba to make it greener and healthier. It is also mixed in with black toasted sesame seeds and nanami togarashi, japanese pepper seasoning. I curled in some smoked salmon to one side, arranged more wakame flat on the noodle, and cut some butterflies out of an egg-yolk sheet. I also included two gyozas and some shelled edamame. In a separate layer, there is more edamame for me to snack on, and a simple dressing made out of sesame oil, apple cider vineger, mirin and honey.

Simple, effective, yummy and perfect for summer. It took me only 15mins to assemble this as I’ve already had gyozas cooked for dinner :). How do you eat your soba?

    It looks amazing and I am a huge fan of the simple and easy approach. They usually turn out to be the best anyways 🙂

    Lovely and yummy soba!
    I wonder why my endamame always turned out way darker than others…
    Yours are so bright green and looked so fresh!

      You might’ve overcooked the edamame? I like mine crunchy,so no more than a few mins in the microwave or boiling water!
