Scallion Sauce Noodles

  • 1 Japanese leek or 2 scallions (40g)
  • 1 tsp ginger, minced (5g)
  • 3 tbsp kombu mentsuyu (45ml)
  • 1/2 tbsp vegetarian oyster sauce (7ml)
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds (5g)
  • 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar (7ml)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil (5ml)
  • 1 bundle somen noodles (100g)
  • 1 oz dried yuba (28g)


  • scallions
  • chili peppers
  • chili oil


  1. Make the sauce: Finely chop the scallions and then reserve a small handful of the green part for topping later. Add the remaining to a bowl. Mix with the minced ginger, mentsuyu, vegetarian oyster sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and sesame seeds. Set aside.
  2. Make the noodles: Cook somen noodles with the yuba according to directions on the package. Depending on the type or brand of yuba you use, you may need to soak them prior for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Toss together: Drain and rinse with cold water very well by gently washing the noodles between the palms of your hands. Strain the water well and then add it back to the pot (or bowl). Add the sauce and toss together. Serve in a shallow bowl. Garnish with remaining scallions, chili pepper and chili oil, and enjoy!
