Recipe: Japanese Cha Soba

Decided to make lunch for the boy and I and it has to be Japanese cuisine since someone loves it. Heh.


Sometime simple, healthy and definitely hearty for the 2 of us. I know, portion control is always a problem for me. :/


Cold matcha tofu.


Japanese potato and apple salad.


Mashed Japanese potato salad.


Cha soba.

Cha Soba is a Japanese chilled buckwheat noodles (soba) served with a soy-based dipping sauce. The noodles is very refreshing and perfect for days when the weather is scorcing hot.

Ingredients:
Soba noodles (any type)
water

300 ml water
2 tbsp Japanse soy sauce
1 tbsp mirin
1/2 tsp dashi powder

Ice cubes
nori seeweeds

Method:
1. Bring a pot of water to boil, cook soba according to timing indicated on the package.
2. Drain cooked noodles, rinise in cold running water and transfer to a bowl of ice cubes. Chill in fridge before serving.
3. Bring 300ml water, soy sauce, mirin and dashi powder to boil. Let the sauce simmer for a minute. When the dipping sauce has cooled, transfer it to a bottle and chill in fridge.
4. To serve, plate the chilled noodles and topped with some nori. Pour some dipping sauce onto a separate bowl.


Cha soba encore for the boy's dinner with his favourite sashimi added. 

ps: pre-made dipping sauce in concentrated form is also easily available for convenience sake.  


Tadah~


Nothing quite enjoyable as seeing your love ones loving every bites of your food. ^^



Really love how simple and easy it is to wipe out a healthy lunch/dinner like this. Everything could be made beforehand and chilled in the fridge. Definitely a good dinner idea for busy workdays. :D

Love, 
Lirong.
