soba and vegetable patties ( chijimi )

Soba is a very healthy noodle, made from buckwheat flour. It has a grainy texture compared to the smoothness of the udon. I didnt like it before but now Im a fan. Can be eaten hot or in hot days like this, best eaten cold.

* boil soba noodles ( the pack says for how long )
* drain and wash in cold running water
* set aside , or you can prepare the dip beforehand

the dip

* mentsuyu ( can be bought in bottles at the asian grocer), add chilled
water to it, to your desired taste
* add grated ginger and very thinly sliced leeks
* lastly add wasabi ( available at japanese grocers)
you can skip this if you like

Dip a fork full soba on the sause and..

slurrrppp...slurrrp !! Hmmm, refreshing and yummy !!

The vegatable patties took a lot of my time, its actually my version of a korean recipe.
That will be for a later post, gotta cook dinner!

This looks wonderful. My brother is an excellent Korean cook, as he lived in Seoul for four years. He brought home a giant kimchee pot, and although he's never made kimchee, my nephew managed to get his head caught in it! Great blog!
