Are you looking for Japanese cold noodle recipe for quick dinner?

When the summer is here, 80% of my family lunch is a cold noodle dish.

It's not only because my families are noodle lovers, but also it's just so easy to make!

Today's Japanese cold noodle recipe is based on my soba noodle dipping sauce recipe.

By combining with soba noodle dipping sauce, you can whip up in 10 mins.

In this Japanese cold noodle recipe, I’m basically introducing sauce.

For topping, I just used whatever I had in my fridge. So, it works the same for you! please be creative!

<Miwa’s tips>

・Toppings are really versatile. Kimuchi is my favorite.

 If you make soba noodle dipping sauce, you will have seasoned bonito flakes. This is a great option for a topping.

・If you think it’s not savory enough, add more soba noodle dipping sauce.

・You can swap toubanjyan paste for miso paste.OR you can even leave that out and add extra soba noodle dipping sauce.

・You can swap tahini for nuts butter.

・Regarding vegetables, instead of chopping into bite size pieces, you can shred vegetables into match thin sticks. You can enjoy different texture!

<Recommended side dish>

Tender teriyaki chicken wings

Ramen soft boiled egg <Soy sauce based>

<Storage time>

Sauce and noodle should be stored separately in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3days
