  • Summary

    Soba noodles tossed with cucumber, scallions and a light yet creamy sesame-ginger-tahini sauce. This would be a great vegan potluck dish, but note that it is best when served promptly, as the salt will draw out the water from the cucumbers and dilute the flavors. It can be gluten-free if you buy gluten-free soba noodles, soy sauce and miso.

    Ingredients

    • 8 ounces soba noodles (about 2 bundles) or spaghetti noodles of choice
    • 1 large or 2 small English cucumbers
    • 1 bunch scallions (green onions), chopped (about ¾ cup chopped)
    • ? cup tahini
    • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
    • 1 tablespoon white miso (optional)
    • 2 teaspoons reduced sodium tamari or soy sauce
    • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
    • handful fresh cilantro, chopped
    • pinch red pepper flakes
    • ? to ½ cup water
    • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds (preferably black)
    • sea salt, to taste
