These cold soba noodles are my son's favorite snack! You can adjust the amount of heat by increasing or omitting the chili oil. A great side dish or add tofu, chicken, or shrimp for a complete meal.

  • Whisk sesame oil, tahini, balsamic vinegar, and chili oil together in a medium mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in soy sauce mixture. Stir in 1/2 of the scallions.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add soba noodles and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 3 minutes. Immediately drain and rinse thoroughly in cold water.

  • Combine noodles and sauce. Sprinkle remaining scallions and sesame seeds over top and refrigerate until cold, at least 30 minutes.
