Sesame Soba Noodles

I love to eat food that is super simple and super quick to make. One of my go to quick fixes is sesame soba noodles, that I also like to dress with oyster sauce (if I have some in the pantry still)


- 1 bundle of soba (buckwheat) noodles
- sesame oil
- chinese oyster sauce
- nori flakes (bonus!)

Boil water in a pot. Once its boiling dump soba noodles inside. I like to put a little bit of sesame oil in the boiling water as well so that the noodles don't stick to each other. soba noodles cook really quickly so in about 2 minutes or so they should be done already .

Strain noodles and put in a bowl, pour more sesame oil in it to your taste. You can stop here, but I also like to add a little bit of oyster sauce on top and then mix all together.

Finally, I like to add japanese nori seasoning ontop for more flavoring.

You can add meat to this as well like chicken pieces or beef.

The ingredients to this are mostly found in Asian or Japanese supermarkets, but make such a quick and great meal that makes it well worth the trip.
