Somen is perfect refreshing food for hot and humid summer season 🎐

Sōmen (素麺) is very thin Japanese noodles made of wheat flour. The noodles are usually served cold in summer with a dashi flavored tasty dipping sauce called Mentsuyu (めんつゆ).

My daughter requested me to make Nagashi Somen (Flowing Somen). Two years ago (when she was 3) she had a chance to do it at Kindergarten. Noodles flowing in a bamboo pipe, you need to catch the noodles with chopsticks then dip in a cup of noodle sauce to eat. Sadly not because of COVID-19, this event is gradually removed from schools. Anyway, we can still enjoy it at home 😋 Kids enjoyed it and ate well 👍💕 BTW, I asked my daughter if she needs a machine like a long water slide, then my daughter chose this one and it was pretty fun!!! Good choice 💡

Nagashi Somen (At-Home Fun Flowing Noodles Party Rainbow LED Machine) Recipe


Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 15min
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
((Toppings))
boiled eggs
Kinshi Tamago (shredded egg crepe) is perfect
cooked shrimp
simmered Shiitake mushrooms
goldfish tomatoes (optional)
cucumber slices (or thin strips)
ham
shredded chicken
Yakibuta (braised pork) is good
Shiso leaves
Naganegi (long onion slices)
Aonegi (chopped green onions)

etc…
((Somen Dipping Sauce))
* 300ml Dashi broth (using packaged dashi powder saves time)
* 4 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 4 tbsp. soy sauce
((Somen Noodles))
dried Somen noodles

Directions:
((Somen Dipping Sauce))
In a pot, bring Dashi broth, Mirin, and soy sauce to a boil. You can also microwave until it comes to a boil. Cool in the fridge until ready to serve.
((Somen Noodles))
Boil water in a large pot. Add dried Somen noodles in boiling water and gently stir noodles with chopsticks. Cook Somen noodles according to your package (mine was 2 min). Drain the noodles in a strainer and rinse the noodles with hands under running water.

NOTE: You can put about 100g (usually 2 bundles) of Somen noodles in the machine or the noodles won’t flow.

I love using Kayanoya Dashi. Vegan/Vegetarian people can use Kombu or Vegetable Dashi broth for the dipping sauce 👍
