Showcase the flavors of spring with this delicious recipe.

Spring is finally here! Want a delicious way to celebrate all the fresh flavors of spring? Try whipping up this tasty and refreshing cold noodle recipe.

Chilled Soba with Fresh Peas and Soft-Boiled Eggs


  • ½ cup shelled fresh peas (from about 8 ounces pods), pods reserved
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 Serrano chili, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup kimchi juice (from a jar of kimchi)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon grated peeled ginger
  • ½ teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon chili oil, plus more for serving
  • 6 ounces dried soba noodles
  • 2 cups pea shoots
  • 1 cup sliced quartered radishes
  • 1 cup watercress greens
  • 4 soft-boiled eggs, quartered
  • Sliced scallions (for serving)


  • Cook peas in a pot of boiling salted water until tender, about 2 minutes. Drain; transfer to a bowl of ice water. Let cool, then drain. Set aside.
  • Bring pea pods (you should have about 4 oz.) and 1½ cups of water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are soft, 20–30 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a medium bowl; discard solids. Cover and chill stock until cold, about 30 minutes. (We think this is a great way to make use of vegetable trimmings, but if you find the idea more work than you want to do, use vegetable stock instead.)
  • Whisk chili, kimchi juice, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, ginger, sesame oil, and ½ tsp. chili oil into vegetable stock.
  • Cook soba noodles in a pot of boiling salted water until tender; transfer to a bowl of ice water (this will stop the cooking). Swish noodles around; drain.
  • Add noodles to bowl with dressing, along with pea shoots, radishes, watercress, and reserved peas and give it all a good toss to make sure noodles and vegetables are evenly coated. Divide among bowls; top with eggs and scallions and drizzle with a little chili oil.
