Summer Soba Noodle Salad and Umami Bomb

Made this simple salad for a light dinner on a warm summer night with the Umami Bomb Shitake oils. They have four different shitake oil’s available which you can find online or at a retailer across the country. I used the Umami Bomb Medium oil which was very tasty, but you could also use one of their other such as the Garlic, Hot or Super Hot.

Prep Time: 12 minutes


Broccoli (one head but you could also get a bag of pre-washed broccoli slaw)

Carrots (2 or 3)

Soba noodles (two bundles)

Umami Bomb

Sesame seeds (optional)

Chopped cashews (optional)

Sliced scallions (optional)


Shred the broccoli and the carrots.

Cook the soba noodles according to the instructions on the package (they usually take 6-7 minutes to cook).

Rinse the cooked soba noodles in cold water and drain thoroughly.

Combine the noodles and the shredded broccoli/carrots (or the slaw).    

Add a generous couple of tablespoons of Umami Bomb and toss together. 

Dress the salad according to your taste. Some people may like more or less Umami Bomb to sauce it up and optional tasty garnishes include sesame seeds, scallions, and cashews.
