Expert Tips

  • To section an orange, peel orange down to flesh, leaving no white pith. With sharp knife and between walls of membrane, cut segments straight down. Gently remove sections.
  • Black sesame seed adds a great unexpected color and light crunch to this dish, but plain toasted sesame seed makes a great substitution.
  • To pack an extra protein punch, top the noodles with baked tofu.
  • If you are carefully watching your sodium intake, be sure to check the nutrition label of the soba noodles. The sodium levels can vary widely. We used soba noodles with 0 mg of sodium per serving in our calculations.
