    PinkCherryBlossom's Note:

    This is my most favouritest noodle dish. I love it just as it is but it makes a great side dish to many meals. To make it a veggie main add some cubed tofu or Quorn in with the green beans. This originally came from "Three bowls" cookbook by Seppo Ed Farrey.

      I thought this dish was just okay. I was hoping for more as I love soba noodles and I love green beans. I thought on their own the noodles were good and the beans were good, but didn't really mix well in this recipe. When I was eating this dish, it seemed like I was either eating beans or noodles, but not really a dish of both (that's what I mean by saying the dish didn't mix well). I cooked my beans for twice the recommended time and it still came out a little too crunchy for us. I used 1 whole tsp of chili flakes and could have used a bit more. I think the roasted sesame seeds are key to this dish. Probably won't make again though.
