Bento Recipe: Satoimo Noodles


Back to the

Mmm, purply,Satoimo noodles are noodles made with satoimo, satoimo being a hairy, weird-looking root that is also called taro. The ones I found were lavender, which is what attracted my attention.  Purple noodles? Neat!

You can treat them the same as other kinds of noodles, really. The easiest way is to boil them for 8 minutes, drain, rinse with water to wash off the starch, then serve them however you liked. I've mixed them in with stir-fried vegetables and a little yakisoba sauce and been pleased.
