Zaru Soba Recipe
A quick and easy zaru (cold) soba recipe
- 1 cup dashi see notes
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tbsp mirin
- 2 bundles soba about 6-7 ounces
- sliced green onions
- nori/seaweed strips
Make the dipping sauce: in a small bowl, mix together the dashi, soy sauce, and mirin. It should be quite salty. Set aside.
Cook the soba according to the package directions. Drain, rinse throughly in cold running water, then drain well.
Serve with the dipping sauce in a small bowl, sliced green onions, nori, and wasabi (if using). To eat, pick up a bunch of soba and dip into the sauce and slurp. Add the green onions and nori to the dipping sauce bowl as desired.
We used instant dashi for this – it’s super simple, just mix the package into 1 cup hot water.
