meals / noodles + pasta / seaweed / soba

1 bundle soba noodles

1/4 of a cucumber, cut into slices then strips

3 large scallions, sliced with white and green parts separated

1 heaping tbsp grated ginger

3 cloves garlic, minced

a big pinch of chili flakes or 1 tsp chili paste

1/2 c. broth (miso works well here)

a big handful of greens (i used kale but spinach would be nice), chopped

1 tsp sesame oil

1 tsp white vinegar

1/2 sheet nori, toasted and cut into strips

Cook your noodles then rinse in cold water and set aside. In a small pan heat a bit of oil and quickly saute white part of the scallions with your ginger until barely cooked (no more than a minute). Add broth and chilis. Cook until broth begins to boil and cook off a tiny bit. Add greens, once they start to lose structure turn off your heat, add sesame oil, vinegar.

Mix cold noodles with cold cucumber and the brothy greens. top with nori and green scallions and sesame seeds (which i was out of)
