Ingredients
  

For the Soba:

  • 500 g dried soba noodles - 100% buckwheat soba noodles (Ju-wari) 125g per serving
  • Iced water

For the Toppings:

  • 1-2 green onions thinly sliced
  • ½ a slice of nori seaweed shredded. Adjust amount for your preference
  • Wasabi paste

For the Sauce:

  • ¼ cup sake or chinese cooking wine
  • ½ cup soy sauce gluten free
  • ½ cup mirin
  • ½ tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp instant dashi powder
  • 1 cup of water

Instructions
 

  • Cook soba noodles according to the package's instructions. While cooking, prepare a medium sized bowl with ice water.
  • When soba is cooked, strain and rinse with cold water. (DO NOT SKIP! This helps remove the extra starch from the soba). Transfer to the ice bath and let cool.
  • In a small pot over medium heat, bring sake to a boil and let the alcohol evaporate for about 30 seconds.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, bring to a boil, and then turn down to simmer for about 5 minutes over low heat.
  • Serve the noodles on a bamboo mat over a plate. This will allow the excess water to strain off the noodles.
  • Garnish with shredded nori and serve with green onions and wasabi on the side.
  • In a small dipping bowl or cup, add 5 Tbsp of the mentsuyu and 100 ml of water. This is per serving. You can adjust the amount of water to your preferences.
  • Add some wasabi and green onions to your dipping sauce. Enjoy your dish by dipping your noodles into the mentsuyu!
