Furikake x Soba experiment

Furikake is a versatile Japanese seasoning made with a blend of dried seaweed, sesame seeds, salt, sugar, and other flavorings. It is commonly sprinkled over rice or used as a topping for various dishes to add extra flavor. While furikake is not traditionally used with soba noodles, there's no hard and fast rule preventing you from experimenting with different flavor combinations.

If you'd like to try using furikake with soba noodles, here's a simple recipe to get you started:


  • Soba noodles
  • Furikake seasoning
  • Soy sauce
  • Sesame oil
  • Optional toppings: sliced green onions, shredded nori seaweed, grated daikon radish, tempura flakes, etc.


  1. Cook the soba noodles according to the package instructions until they are al dente. Drain and rinse the noodles under cold water to remove any excess starch.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine soy sauce and sesame oil in a ratio of about 1:1 or to taste. You can adjust the amounts depending on your preference for saltiness and richness.
  3. Toss the cooked and rinsed soba noodles in the soy sauce and sesame oil mixture until they are evenly coated.
  4. Sprinkle furikake seasoning over the noodles, starting with a small amount, and toss gently to distribute the flavors. Adjust the amount of furikake according to your taste.
  5. Optional: Add any other desired toppings, such as sliced green onions, shredded nori seaweed, grated daikon radish, or tempura flakes.
  6. Serve the furikake-coated soba noodles immediately and enjoy!

Keep in mind that this recipe is a departure from traditional soba noodle preparations, which often involve dipping the noodles into a separate sauce or broth. However, the combination of furikake, soy sauce, and sesame oil can create a unique and flavorful twist on soba noodles. Feel free to customize the recipe by adding other ingredients that you enjoy or adapting it to your taste preferences.
