|8 oz||soba noodles|
|2 t||wakame flakes|
|1⁄4 c||shiitake mushrooms (sliced)|
|2 T||red onion (finely minced)|
|1⁄2 c||scallions (finely chopped)|
|1⁄2 c||snow peas (stems removed, blanched 1 minute)|
|1 c||carrots (julienned, blanched 1 minute)|
|1⁄4 c||cold water|
|1 T||soy sauce (shoyu, plus more to taste)|
|2 T||ginger root (fresh, finely grated)|
Bring two quarts of water to a boil in a soup pot. When cooking 100% buckwheat soba, it foams up, so make sure to use a tall soup pot. Place the soba, wakame flakes and shiitake in the pot. Bring to a boil again. Turn the flame to medium-low and simmer 10 minutes or until the soba is tender. Do not boil the soba rapidly or over cook as they tend to fall apart easily. When done, pour into a colander, rinse thoroughly with cold water and drain well.
Place the red onion, scalliion, snowpeas, and carrots in a large bowl and toss to combine. Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the 1/4 cup of cold water, soy sauce, and grated ginger. Add the drained soba to the bowl of vegetables, drizzle with the soy-gingger sauce, and toss to coat. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
