Soba, Chives and Crème Fraîche
Just before serving, toss cold soba noodles with dollops of crème fraîche, chives, and hard-boiled egg yolks. Have a friend bring a salad, and you've got a great lunch.
8 ounces soba noodles, cooked and rinsed in cold water
4 tablespoons crème fraîche
fine grain sea salt
lots of chopped chives
yolks of 4 hard-boiled eggs, crumbled
fresh chive or herb flowers
Shake off any extra water from the soba noodles, place in a mixing bowl and toss gently with the crème fraîche. Taste, and salt if needed. Serve a tangle of soba noodles and sprinkle with a generous amount of chives, hard-boiled egg yolk, and chive flowers.
