Tuna & Soba noodle salad

Cook the Soba Noodles as the package requires. Different brands probably require different times. Soba noodles are made of buckwheat, so nutritionally they are similar to wholewheat noodles. So therefor more healthy than rice noodles. Once you've cooked them up, drain them and rinse them with cold water.

In a large bowl add a few table spoons of soy sauce, a few shakes of the sesame oil and a few squirts of the Srihachi sauce. When it looks like enough to cover the noodles and tuna mix it all up. Add the tuna, squish it with your fork and make sure it drinks up the sauce. Now add your cold noodles. Stir it up so they are covered with the sauce. If it looks like there isn't enough sauce just add more of the ingredients to the whole bowl. This should make about 3 servings. Soba noodles generally come in little bundles, each bundle is about a serving so try not to eat more than one bundle. Tastes even better after it's spent some time in the fridge. This would be a great lunch or addition to a bento!

  • Soba noodles (Japanese buckwheat noodles)
  • Tamari Soy sauce (or regular, I just love the taste)
