Pretty Pink Ume Soba - NOT Meat Strings

>> Thursday, June 4, 2009

1. cold ume soba noodles with a little parsley (dipping sauce not pictured)
2. grapefruit with lime zest
3. Armenian cucumber chunks

The last time I packed cold noodles they were a pasty mess by the time I was ready to eat them. Thanks to Just Hungry I've learned that you need to wash the noodles, rinsing alone isn't enough. Of course the last time I packed cold noodles they weren't pink either. And didn't prompt Boo to ask "is that MEAT?".

washing is different than rinsing??? You mean, like take the noodles in the shower?????

Yeah, really! You rub the noodles between your hands under water. There's pictures at the link above :)
