Soba Noodles with Sweet Ginger Scallion Sauce

I just love this recipe. The sauce is a perfect balance of sweet, spicy and sour. Soba noodles are also gluten free, so this is a great recipe if you're dieting. This dish makes great leftovers, perfect to bring to work since they won't need re-heating.

Makes 4 servings, 450 calories each.
  • 8 oz soba noodles
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 cup thinly sliced cucumber
  • 9 oz cooked chicken
Sweet Ginger Scallion sauce:
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped scallions
  • 2 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons chili oil
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • salt & pepper to taste

Mix all the ingredients for sweet ginger scallion sauce and set aside for flavors to develop.

Boil soba noodles according to package directions. If you want them cold, rinse with cold water. If you want them hot, just drain. (I like them cold) Be sure to drain them very well, or you'll end-up watering down your sauce

Add the sauce, chicken, sesame seeds, sliced cucumber and toss well.
