Cold Tea Noodles

Cold Tea Noodles: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 4
Cook Time: 5 min.
A perfect warm-weather dish. Keep cool by cooking the noodles in tea the night before serving. The next day, assemble the short list of ingredients, and dinner is on the table.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbs Japanese Genmaicha green tea
  • 1/2 lb Chinese water noodles or Japanese udon noodles
  • 1 package firm tofu, well drained
  • 1 package enoki mushrooms
  • 1 package radish sprouts, washed and dried
  • 1 bunch scallions, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1 small bunch cilantro leaves
  • Light soy sauce, to taste
  • Japanese sesame oil, to taste
  • Shichimi togarashi (Japanese spice mixture, available at Asian markets) or freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

  • Bring two quarts water to 180°F (85°C) and add tea. Steep for 3 minutes and pour through a sieve. Reserve liquid for cooking the noodles.
  • Bring the reserved tea to a boil and add noodles. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until noodles are al dente. Remove from heat and allow the noodles to remain in the liquid until it has cooled. Remove noodles from liquid and place in a bowl, covered, overnight in the refrigerator.
  • The next day, put tofu on a plate and cover it with several layers of paper towels. Press any excess moisture from it by placing a two-pound weight on top of the paper towels.
  • Remove weight and paper toweling after 15 minutes. Carefully slice the tofu into 1-inch (2.5cm) cubes and set aside.
  • Place noodles on four plates. Scatter tofu and remaining ingredients over all. Serve with soy sauce, sesame oil and seasoning.
