  • Combine dashi, soy sauce, mirin, and white sugar in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature, about 25 minutes.

  • Toss noodles with sesame seeds and divide among 4 serving bowls. Spoon dashi sauce over noodles. Top with green onions and nori.

Cook's Notes:

If using dried dashi granules, reconstitute it according to the package or to taste.

Substitute 2 tablespoons sake (Japanese rice wine) and 2 1/2 teaspoons sugar for the mirin if desired.

The sauce can be prepared ahead and refrigerated until serving if desired.

Tasted wonderful but salty. I recommend using low sodium soy sauce. I used a powdered dashi I found on Amazon. Read More

So good!! Better than the bottled soba sauce. I’m never buying the sauce again. Not too salty at all. For protein, I paired this with thinly sliced grilled lemon chicken breast and it was amazing. Thank you for the recipe!!!! Read More
