Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to cook with nutritious komatsuna greens in an Asian fusion dish.
☆ In Step 3, drain the somen noodles well. ☆ In Steps 5 and 6, do not take too much time when cooking or the dish would become watery. ☆ In Step 6, after adding the komatsuna, just mix lightly as it will cook in residual heat. ☆ Squeeze a lemon just before serving if you prefer.
