Eating somen noodle with dipping sauce is very tasty and easy to prepare for quick lunch!
You can enjoy your favorite dipping sauce, for example soy sauce base sauce and sesame-miso sauce.
Putting the noodles in warm soup is also good choice.
But today’s somen noodles menu will be a little different actually…!
It is going to be “DRY” somen noodles. It means you don’t eat it with dipping sauce or soup, but with toppings of meat miso (ground meat seasoned with sweet miso paste) and coriander.
Another important part of the dish is that the noodles will be coating with peanut butter sauce.
The sauce made from peanut butter and grind sesame tastes amazing and matches perfect with miso-flavored ground meat.
Fresh coriander gives great accent to the dish too!
If you dislike coriander, it would be nice to have only chili oil for topping.
