recipe from City Cuisine by Mary Sue Miliken and Susan Feniger
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon molasses
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup sesame oil
1/4 cup chili oil
3 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 bunch thinly sliced scallions, white and green
1/2 lb soba noodles
Large bowl filled with water and ice
Place soy sauce in a pan over high heat and reduce by half. Turn heat to low, stir in molasses, and warm briefly. Transfer to a serving bowl. Add brown sugar through scallions and whisk to combine.
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add noodles; bring back to a boil, and cook, stirring occasionally, until they just begin to soften, about three minutes. DO NOT OVERCOOK or they will turn sticky and mushy!
Have a large bowl of iced water ready. Drain noodles, plunge in iced water, and drain. I just rinsed with cold water in a colander. Transfer noodles to the serving bowl that has the sauce, toss well and chill.
