  • 1 teaspoon garlic or ginger, peeled & minced

  • Black pepper, ground to taste
  1. Bring 8 C of water to a boil in a 3 qt sauce pan. Add soba noodles and cook until slightly al dente, approximately 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. A small amount of sesame oil may be added to prevent sticking. Drain, rinse well in cold water and place in a large mixing bowl.
