Soba Noodles in Sweet Ginger Scallion Sauce

Soba Noodles in Sweet Ginger Scallion Sauce
To be totally honest Asian dishes in the past had never been my strong suit. But since I've been writing this blog, I've begun to branch out working with flavors and techniques outside of my comfort zone. The result of trying and creating these new recipes has made me a better chef overall and and influenced my creativity in all the dishes I make.

This dish is a delicious, easy, and healthy dinner that takes just moments to put together. Why buy a prepackaged meal from Trader Joe's when you can make something fresh and scrumptious like this in the same amount of time? Whether it's this dish or anything you read on MiddleBar, I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and you might just find your new favorite meal. :)

Soba in Sweet Ginger Scallion Sauce
1 package of soba noodles       
1 1/2 cup chopped scallions            
2 tbs minced ginger                          
1/4 cup cilantro                                
2-3 tbs sesame oil                      
2 tsp chili oil (My favorite ingredient: photo ->)
1 tbs soy sauce  
2 tbs rice wine vinegar                      
2 tbs honey
pinch of salt & pepper

2 tbs toasted sesame seeds
2 lime wedges
julianne carrots
1 tbs scallion
1 tbs cilantro
10 slices of cucumber
1 tbs pickled ginger

Cook your soba noodles according to package directions then remove, strain and place in a bowl of ice water, and drain well again when chilled. Mix all ingredients for ginger scallion sauce then toss with noodles. Garnish with everything possible!

Deeeelicious Ya'll, try it!!
