  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
  2. Pour the sesame seeds onto a baking tray. Toast the seeds in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, until they are a golden brown colour around the edges.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Add the soba noodles and cook them for 5 to 6 minutes, or until they are just tender. Drain them, rinse them well with cold water, and drain them again.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, garlic, sesame oil and spring onions. Add the noodles, and the toasted sesame seeds. Toss well, then stir in the broccoli. Let the dish sit for 30 minutes at room temperature before serving.

This recipe is fine, but unfortunately I'm not a great fan of soba noodles. (I do keep trying, though!) I would like to make this again, but using a different type of noodle next time, I'm sure it would be rather tasty! - 09 Jul 2012
