1. Grilled tofu with soba noodles
2. Cold sesame noodles
3. Broccoli eggrolls

#1 and mentioned in #3! I have had it in my pantry before, but do not have any currently!

I'm confused ... I saw it in 1 and 3 :-)

CJ, a little bit tricky! But H is only an ingredient in one of the recipes.

Good ol' H -- #1 uses so much, that big bottle mentioned by Patricia would be a big help! Don't use it often enough, but it makes tastes come together just right.

1, but I don't use it.

#1. I have it, and I used it last week!

1 and mentioned in 3. A must for me as I love the flavour.

1. and it is on my shopping list - I ran out last week!

#2 And I am out of it!

Yes, yes, it is a staple in my pantry, too (and I partly blame you for making me a pantry hoarder:)
It's in your Soba Noodles recipe, but I use it in a variety of dishes. Interesting recipe for a fake one! Good to know:)

#1 and #3
