The Method

Boil the soba noodles according to the package directions. Rinse them with cold water, and drain. Once cool, drizzle the sesame oil and 2 tablespoons of low sodium soy sauce over the noodles. Mix well and set aside.

For the sesame sauce, put sesame seeds in a frying pan and toast them on low heat. When 2-3 sesame seeds start to pop from the pan, remove from the heat.

Grind the toasted sesame seeds with a mortar and pestle or food processor. Leave some sesame seeds unground for some texture.

Add 4 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce, sugar, sake, and mirin. Mix everything together and give it a taste. Adjust the seasoning as necessary. Set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a large fry pan over medium-high heat. Add the Mann’s CAULILINI® baby cauliflower and sauté for 2-3 minutes, or until the Mann’s CAULILINI® baby cauliflower is just beginning to soften. Do not overcook.

Add the Mann’s CAULILINI® baby cauliflower to the soba noodle bowl, and toss everything with the sesame dressing.

Optional Garnishes: black sesame seeds and peppers.
