lustrous, bright, soft and nutrient

I was after soba noodles, but my local supermarket had none, so I picked these up instead, hoping they were a rought equvalent (they're not, they're for soup, not cold and dry). When I was prepping them I read the instructions on the back, and thought I would share them with you. 'cause they're pretty special.

I'm not sure what 'souted' is, and just cooked them the normal way I cook every and any sort of noodle. I particularly like the 'specialty' ribbon wrapped around each bunch. Could easily replace the word with 'caution', or 'toxic material'.

They're really nice noodles, by the way.


  1. Could "souted" mean "sauted"?

    Somewhat appropriately, my word verification is "chinesse".

  2. Could be, although I don't know if that would be appropriate for this particular type of noodle. I half though it might be 'soaked', but that doesn't quite seem right either.

    Whatever it is, it's popular enough to repeat.

    word verification: slings. That's not a jumble word!

  3. "Lustrous, bright, soft and nutrient" is my new motto. Or at least my Facebook status.
