Somen with Furikake

Somen with Furikake is a delicious Japanese dish that combines somen noodles with furikake seasoning. Somen noodles are very thin wheat noodles, often served chilled in the summertime. Furikake is a flavorful Japanese seasoning made from a mixture of dried fish, sesame seeds, seaweed, and other ingredients.

To make Somen with Furikake, you'll need the following ingredients:

  • Somen noodles
  • Furikake seasoning
  • Soy sauce
  • Scallions (green onions), thinly sliced
  • Shredded nori (seaweed)

Here's a simple recipe to prepare Somen with Furikake:

  1. Cook the somen noodles according to the package instructions. Usually, somen noodles cook quickly, so it's important to keep an eye on them to prevent overcooking. Once cooked, rinse the noodles under cold water to chill them and stop the cooking process. Drain well.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the chilled somen noodles with a drizzle of soy sauce. Toss gently to evenly coat the noodles with soy sauce. Adjust the amount of soy sauce to your taste.
  3. Sprinkle furikake seasoning over the noodles. You can use any type of furikake that you prefer, such as bonito flakes, sesame seeds, or seaweed flakes. The furikake will add a savory and aromatic flavor to the dish.
  4. Add thinly sliced scallions (green onions) to the noodles for extra freshness and crunch.
  5. To serve, divide the seasoned somen noodles into individual bowls or plates. Garnish with shredded nori (seaweed) for an added layer of flavor and texture.

Somen with Furikake is commonly enjoyed as a light and refreshing meal during the hot summer months. It's a versatile dish, and you can also add other toppings like sliced cucumber, grated ginger, or a splash of citrus juice for extra zest. Enjoy your delicious somen dish!
