How to boil Soy Noodles
● Hot water temperature: Soy Noodles becomes hard when boiled with boiling water. Once the water has been brought to a boil, lower the heat once and let it boil slowly until it reaches a temperature of “about the fine bubbles come out”. Boil slowly for 12-18 minutes. It takes longer to boil than ordinary pasta, but it is important to boil it well.
● Let’s add edible baking soda!: If you add 2 pinches of baking soda (about 2g) to 1L of hot water, the noodles will have a soft and smooth texture. Adding baking soda will soften the noodles quickly, so please adjust the boiling time to about 3 minutes less than usual. Check the boiling for about 9 minutes and boil until you have the desired firmness.
Because it is 100% soybean noodles, it takes a longer time to boil than general noodles, but it is more delicious by boiling the noodles slowly. Please adjust the boiling time according to your cooking and taste.
- If you like [hard] … the standard is 12 minutes. Recommended when you want a firm texture such as hot soba.
- [Intermediate] If is good … Approximately 15 minutes. Almighty for pasta, Chinese noodles, ramen, etc.
- If [soft] is good … Estimated 18 minutes. Recommended for udon and cold noodles. In particular, when cooled, the noodles tend to tighten and give a firm impression.
* If you add edible baking soda in hot water, it will soften faster, so adjust the boiling time by “minus 3 minutes” from the above.
