  • Summary

    The key to cooking with chiles is to think of their heat not as a dare but as another essential building block of flavor, right alongside salt, acid, and fat. Rather than overpowering a dish, a perfectly calibrated prickle of spice enhances the other elements and wakes up the palate.

    Ingredients

    • 4 ounces soba (Japanese-style noodles)
    • Kosher salt
    • 2 tablespoons white miso
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    • 3/4 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
    • 3 serrano chiles, 2 halved and seeds removed, 1 thinly sliced
    • 1 garlic clove, peeled
    • 2 scallions, white and pale-green parts only, chopped
    • 2 cups chopped basil leaves, plus torn leaves for serving
    • 2 cups chopped cilantro
    • 2 cups trimmed watercress
    • Toasted sesame seeds (for serving)
