Cold Soba with Dipping Sauce

Cold soba is great as side dish or snack in summer. It is almost winter here downunder but I have leftover soba form the other day so I think I should cover this soba variation as well.

For 2 you will need:

1 bundle of dried soba noodles, cooked per instruction on the packet, drained and leave to cool completely
½ sheet Nori, cut into very thin strips for garnish
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds for garnish

1/2 cup dashi stock or chicken stock
1 tablespoon mirin
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar

1 spring onion, chopped for garnish

Combine all the sauce ingredients together in a saucepan and bring to the boil, leave to cool and refrigerate for about an hour or 2.

Arrange cooked soba into 2 plates, sprinkle with sesame seeds and nori strip. Divide the sauce in to 2 bowls. sprinkle with chopped spring onion  – dip soba into the sauce and enjoy (slurp, slurp:)
