    I’ve made these! Thanks for your advice using the half-sheets of nori.

    I tried this. It tasted great but the roll didn’t hold together very well. I put a little sesame oil in the dressing. Could it be that made the soba overly slick? Did you drain the soba after putting it in the dressing or did you put it straight onto the nori?

    Unfortunately, there is no one tried and true solution to keeping this roll nice and tidy. Unlike sushi rice, the soba isn’t as sticky. It takes a little bit of maneuvering to make it happen. Try letting the soba marinate in the dressing then patting some of it away with a paper towel. That should help. Also try packing the soba very tightly in the roll – you’ll most likely have to cut away a small bit from each end, but the middle pieces should hold better if they are compact. Hope this helps!
