This is not a pc recipe but I have to tell you this recipe has been one of my favorites for about ten years. (I've been a Lorna Sass fan that long...) It's also very easy to make. Since your step daughter's a picky eater, if she doesn't like soba, I've often used regular ol' linguini instead. I also normally bump up the garlic. (Ain't no vampires in *this* house!!!)

Cold Sesame Noodles

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/2 pound snow peas -- trimmed
1 pound soba noodles -- cooked
2 tablespoons sesame oil
6 tablespoons tahini
6 cloves garlic -- minced
3 tablespoons tamari soy sauce
2 pinches freshly ground pepper
4 teaspoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon maple sugar
1/2 cup water -- approximately
1 pinch cayenne

Bring about 6 cups of water to the boil. Blanch the snow peas in the water for 1 minute. Remove them with a slotted spoon, place in a strainer, and refresh immediately under cold running water. Cut into thirds and set aside.
In the same boiling water used for the snow peas, cook the pasta until tender but still chewy. Drain well and reserve about 1/2 cup of the cooking water.
In a serving bowl, immediately toss the hot pasta in the sesame oil to prevent it from clumping together.
In a blender or food processor, combine the remaining ingredients, starting with 1 1/2 tbl tamari and freshly ground pepper with just enough of the pasta cooking liquid to create a medium-thick sauce (the consistency should be like pancake batter). Toss the sauce and reserved snow peas with the pasta. Taste and add more tamari and pepper if desired.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
