Look… I rarely say these things because I felt creativity and pairing both require daring and risk-taking courage… But soba noodles with chopped bell peppers and raw julienned carrots are just a little too strange for me. I am used to eating soba noodles with seaweed, perhaps natto, sesame seeds, or even steamed vegetables and tofu. So uncooked tomatoes are my limits for this recipe.
This is an easy recipe, but in this recipe I didn’t use chili oil, I used sriracha-like chili paste/sauce instead. And my sister, upon eating, wanted more of those chili sauce with her noodles. So I guess it’s a winning combination.
Again, I don’t eat scallion, so I don’t care that this one didn’t have any green in it. I could have steamed some vegetables with it or had some pickled vegetables with it, but I didn’t want to go out to buy just one or two things.
Again this is a very easy recipe, so again not a lot of people blogged about it, but it seemed to be well-liked, so enjoy!
