Hot days call for cool things. This is a repost of one of our favorite cold noodle dishes. It's hot spicy but served cold.
Spicy Cold Soba Noodles
adapted by There's Always Thyme to Cook
Source: Jessy F
original recipe from City Cuisine by Mary Sue Miliken and Susan Feniger
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon molasses
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup sesame oil
1/4 cup chili oil (more or less to taste)
3 tablespoon balsamic or red wine vinegar
1/2 bunch thinly sliced scallions, white and green
1/2 lb soba noodles
large bowl filled with water and ice
Place soy sauce in a pan over high heat and reduce by half. Turn heat to low, stir in molasses, and warm briefly. Transfer to a serving bowl. Add brown sugar through scallions and whisk to combine.
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add noodles; bring back to a boil, and cook, stirring occasionally, until they just begin to soften, about three minutes.
Have a large bowl of iced water ready. Drain noodles, plunge in ice water, and drain (I just rinse with cold water in the colander). Transfer noodles to the serving bowl that has the sauce, toss well and chill. Serve cold or room temp.
