Cold Soba Noodles (Zaru Soba)

Serves 4 | Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 20 minutes


8 ounces any Eden Soba

Dipping Sauce

2 cups water

4-inch piece Eden Kombu

1/3 cup Eden Mirin

1/4 cup Eden Shoyu Soy Sauce


1/2 cup green onions, sliced

2 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds

1/2 cup Eden Toasted Nori Krinkles
or 1 sheet Eden Sushi Nori cut into thin strips

2 tsp Eden Wasabi Powder, mix with several drops of hot water to form a thick paste

1/4 cup Eden Bonito Flakes, optional


Cook the soba per package directions. Pour into a colander and rinse under cold water. While the soba is cooking prepare the dipping sauce..

Place the water, kombu, mirin and shoyu in a small saucepan. Bring almost to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat and discard the kombu or use again to make a milder soup stock or dashi. Set the liquid aside to cool or refrigerate until chilled.

When the dipping sauce is cool, place an equal portion of soba on individual small plates or traditional Japanese bamboo-lined plates. Garnish with green onions, bonito flakes (if desired) and nori krinkles.

Pour the dipping sauce into small dipping bowls or ramekins and add an equal portion of sesame seeds, green onions, and wasabi paste.

Note: The dipping sauce can be serve cold or hot depending on the weather and your preference. The sauce is a little on the salty side as it is for dipping not soaking the noodles in like broth. It may be further diluted with water to taste. Steamed or tempura vegetables can also be used as toppings.
