Spicy Cold Soba Noodles

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by spatchcock

I make this quite often. We love it; it has the right amount of spiciness, and you can adjust the spiciness to fit your tastes. We also use this sauce as a dip for spring rolls or egg rolls, or as a sauce for broccoli or other stir fried Asian vegetables.

Delicious!! I did cut down the sesame oil by about half (trying to watch my fat intake) and didn't miss it at all. I added some chopped red pepper for color, as well as some sesame seeds for crunch. I found that the amount of sauce was enough for a whole pound of soba. Fantastic and very simple dish, one I will definitely make again! Thanks for posting!!
