Sesame Broccoli Soba Noodle Salad

Submitted by: LAROCKRGRL

Introduction

You'll find a batch of this hanging out in my fridge at least twice a couple times a month! I add grilled chicken breast to make it a complete meal. You'll find a batch of this hanging out in my fridge at least twice a couple times a month! I add grilled chicken breast to make it a complete meal.

Ingredients

    1 bunch broccoli, washed and cut into florets, stems peeled and cut into 1" pieces
    2 Tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons soy sauce (can use reduced sodium if you like)
    2 teaspoons honey or agave syrup
    3-4 teaspoons dark (toasted) sesame oil
    3-4 Tablespoons black sesame seeds (can be hard to find; It's not the same but in a pinch use 4 Tablepoons regular sesame seeds, lightly toasted in a dry pan over low heat)
    3 oz. organic soba noodles, cooked 4 minutes in boiling salted water and drained thoroughly
    2 cooked chicken breast portions (I grill them on a grill pan), cut into bite size pieces (optional--leave it out to go Veggie)
    1-2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice (optional)
    salt to taste (optional)
    crushed hot red pepper flakes or Vietnamese chili garlic paste (optional)

Directions

Steam broccoli pieces 'til just tender but still green, about 7 minutes. Drain.

Meanwhile, mix soy sauce, honey, seasame oil, lemon juice (optional), and seasame seeds. Add the cooked and drained broccoli and soba noodles; toss gently with tongs or two forks. Add grilled chicken; toss gently again. Chill at least 30 minutes. When ready to serve, taste for seasoning and add a little more lemon juice or salt if necessary. Serve cold or room temperature. I like mine with a little crushed red pepper flakes or Vietmamese chili paste (lethally hot, so try cautiously). Makes 4 generous main dish size servings, but I usually get 6 out of it.
