You can find soba at Korean restaurants or Katsu restaurants. It’s pretty pricy at restaurants, but thankfully, it is SUPER easy to make at home. The noodles can be about $5 but you can make many, many servings from just one pack of noodles. As usual, the vegetables in this recipe are pretty cheap, and the broth ranges from about $3-$5. It’s a quick and simple dish to make for many people, and the price per serving goes down to less than $2! Too many numbers, time to cook.
- 2 bunches of Soba Noodles
- Soba broth (can be found at most Asian grocery stores)
- Green Onions
- Nori *optional
- Boil soba noodles. They are thick noodles and tend to take awhile to cook. Check on packaging for instructions on how to cook the noodles
- Make the broth. The bottle usually says it can just be poured and used without any extra water, but you should definitely water it down because it is SODIUM PACKED! Pour about a 1:2 or even 1:3 ratio of broth to water
- Grate the radish using a grater and squeeze all the juice out of it and form it into a small ball. *Radish makes the broth a lot cooler and more refreshing
- Squeeze out some wasabi on to a small plate
- Chop green onions
- Bring everything together for a nice presentation and you can top the noodles with some nori if you have some on hand
- HAPPY EATING!
