Ponzu sauce and tahini paste balance one another beautifully. Powerfully citrusy and tart, the Japanese sauce is mellowed by the toasted nuttiness of the Middle Eastern paste (made from ground sesame seeds). Combined with a little mirin, they make an incredible dressing for this salad of soba noodles and fall vegetables. In addition to sautéed cabbage and rainbow chard, we’re using yellow beet, which is milder and sweeter than its red counterpart. A sprinkling of togarashi (a Japanese blend of chile flakes) finishes the dish with a dash of smoky heat.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat 2 medium pots of salted water to boiling on high. Cut off and discard both ends of the beet; peel and medium dice. Peel and mince the garlic and ginger. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Separate the chard leaves and stems; roughly chop the leaves and thinly slice the stems.

Cook the beet:
2 Cook the beet:

Add the beet to the first pot of boiling water. Cook 14 to 16 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Drain thoroughly and transfer to a large bowl.

Make the dressing:
3 Make the dressing:

While the beet cooks, in a small bowl, combine the mirin, ponzu sauce and tahini. Whisk until thoroughly combined; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook the noodles:
4 Cook the noodles:

While the beet continues to cook, add the noodles to the second pot of boiling water. Cook 6 to 8 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Drain thoroughly and rinse under cold water to prevent the noodles from sticking.

Cook the vegetables:
5 Cook the vegetables:

While the noodles cook, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of oil on medium-high until hot. Add the garlic, ginger and white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened and fragrant. Add the cabbage, chard leaves and chard stems; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the cabbage and chard leaves are slightly wilted. Remove from heat and transfer to a large bowl.

6 Finish & plate your dish:

To the bowl of cooked vegetables, add the cooked beet, cooked noodles and as much of the dressing as you’d like (you may have extra dressing). Toss to thoroughly combine; season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide between 2 dishes. Garnish with the green tops of the scallions and as much of the spice blend as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Enjoy!
