Gomoku Somen Recipe

Gomoku Somen

Gomoku Somen

Somen is very tasty and a super easy dish, but it is a somewhat light meal by itself.  Gomoku means ‘variety of ingredients’ in Japanese.  Here I put cucumber, ham, Kinshi Tamago, and Benishoga on Somen, but you can add any of your favorite veggies or protein.  With vegetables and meat along with noodles, Gomoku Somen is a more complete meal.  By cutting everything into thin strips, it is easier to eat, and you can enjoy all the toppings in every bite.  You may dip or just pour the sauce over the noodles.

If you need to refresh your memory on how to make Somen and Kinshi Tamago, and Mentsuyu, please watch our videos.
