soba noodle bowl with pear and cucumber

Back to my cold noodle kick and thankfully this time around... we have the weather for it.  This is the perfect dish if you are wanting something fresh and light for dinner.  The flavors all come together perfectly, with the pear being my favorite unexpected addition.  This makes a great vegetarian main course or would be delicious alongside maple soy salmon or on grilled chicken using homemade teriyaki sauce.

Servings 4-6
Total Time 15 minutes

  • 8 ounces soba noodles
  • 2 firm pears, such as Bosc, chopped
  • 2 cups julienned seedless cucumber
  • 1 cup grated radish
  • 6 tablespoons Bragg's Liquid Aminos or soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha or other hot sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced 
  • 4-6 hard-boiled eggs, cut into wedges (optional)
  • 1 bunch green onion, sliced
  • sesame seeds, for garnish


1. Cook noodles according to package directions.  Drain using a colander and then rinse under cold water, allowing to drain again.

2.  Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the pear, cucumber, and radish. Set aside.

3. In a small bowl whisk the soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, sriracha, and garlic with 2 tablespoons of water.

4.  Stir the noodles into the veggies, pour in the sauce, and toss to mix.

5.  Serve the noodles topped with green onion, sesame seeds, and egg wedges on the side. Enjoy!!!
