Easy Dinner : Sobas with a kimchi-tahini sauce

I love making kimchi and then finding innovative ways to eat it.  This dish combines tahini with kimchi creating a spicy creamy sauce.


serves 2

  • soba noodles
  • 1 cup kimchi (especially homemade)
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame seeds
  • red pepper threads (available in Korean markets)
  • limes

To Do:

Begin cooking the soba noodles.  In a mixing bowl, place tahini and 2 Tablespoons hot water, stir until smooth and add the kimchi.  After you drain the sobas, place the steaming hot noodles in the bowl with the kimchi-tahini mixture.  Toss to coat.  Serve in bowls drizzled with sesame oil, and topped with scallions, sesame seeds, and red pepper threads.  Serve with lime wedges.
