Love Japanese food and basil cream sauce but hoping to cut back on the calories? This easy basil-infused and nutty accented soba recipe will certainly provide you with that healthy dose of creamy goodness without compromising on the taste!
Re-creating the delectable basil cream sauce is simple and fuss-free. Instead of using the calorie-laden heavy cream, Farmers Union Greek Style Yogurt is a healthier alternative that offers equally smooth and creamy consistency. Mixing it together with a dollop of Japanese roasted sesame provides a more nutty and sweet flavour. Toss in a handful of toasted pine nuts and julienned basil to complete your homemade basil sauce. For a more flavourful punch, simply add in a pinch of kosher salt and black pepper.
As a popular noodle base in Japanese cuisine, soba noodles offer a healthy alternative to the carbohydrate-heavy pasta. Treat your soba noodles as you would with any pasta for an al dente finish and throw in spirals of cucumber and zucchini for that crunchy aftertaste. Best served chilled, toss the soba mixture with your homemade sesame yogurt sauce and top with edamame and toasted sesame seeds – it will no doubt be a satisfying meal to cool off when the heat turns unbearable.
