Soba Noodles with Miso-Roasted Tomatoes

A light, healthy, and flavorful (gluten-free) soba noodles dish with roasted tomatoes that are dressed in a delicious miso-sesame-ginger sauce!

One of my goals in the cooking realm of this blog was to cook more Asian food. I love most Asian cuisines but I haven’t cooked many recipes that hail from this part of the world. I think my biggest obstacle was a feeling of intimidation due to the fact that I had never used many of the ingredients. I have made a couple of Asian dishes over recent months, and I love the way they have all turned out.

This miso soba noodles recipe, adapted from Food & Wine magazine, falls under that umbrella. The miso and sesame oil give the dish that familiar, delicious umami quality that is associated with so much of Asian fare. Although it’s a noodle dish, it doesn’t taste or feel heavy at all. And it’s ready in just 20 minutes! As we were eating it for dinner last night, Mr. K and I agreed that it was yet another perfect meal for spring; it’s light and yet very satisfying. Of course, if you can’t find soba noodles at your local market, whole wheat spaghetti noodles would make a perfectly fine substitute.

How To Make Soba Noodles with Miso-Roasted Tomatoes

  • Step 1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.  In a bowl, whisk the canola oil, vinegar, miso, ginger, sesame oil, honey, lime zest and lime juice until smooth.  Season with salt.
  • Step 2. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the tomatoes with 3 tablespoons of the miso dressing and season with salt.
  • Step 3. Roast for 20 minutes, stirring, until the tomatoes are charred in spots.  Scrape into a large bowl.
  • Step 4. Cook the soba in soiling water just until al dente, 4 minutes.
  • Step 5. Drain and cool under cold running water.
  • Step 6. Add the soba, scallions and half of the remaining dressing to the tomatoes and toss well.  Season with salt.
  • Step 7. Transfer to a platter and garnish with the sesame seeds.  Serve with the remaining dressing.
