How to Make Soba Noodles with Wasabi and Baby Corn


  1. Dry-toast the black and white sesame seeds in a heavy skillet over low heat, stirring occasionally, about fifteen minutes.
  2. In a large pot of salted water, boil the soba noodles until they are al dente, about seven minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  3. In a small glass bowl, stir to combine the wasabi and the soy sauce. Set aside for ten minutes to allow the flavors to develop.
  4. Stir in the sesame and peanut oils, vinegar, and garlic.
  5. Diagonally slice each tiny corn cob in half. Toss the corn into the dressing and set aside to allow the flavors to blend, about fifteen minutes.
  6. Pour the corn-spiked dressing over the noodles and toss thoroughly to coat.
  7. Sprinkle on the green onions and pickled ginger and toss again gently.
