A simple and quick soba noodle dish ready in just 20 minutes. So delicious, comforting and so easy to throw together on any weekday night!
What are soba noodles? Soba noodles are also known as buckwheat noodles. Soba is just the Japanese name for buckwheat. These noodles are made with buckwheat noodles, sometimes with whole-wheat flour as well. It tends to be higher in fiber and protein than other noodles!
Cold noodles are a common dish made with soba. I tossed it with a honey sesame sauce, raw bell peppers and edamame. It was so delicious!! I made enough for 3 meals because this is one of my favorite quick appetizer side dishes. I also added in some shrimp cooked in the same honey sesame sauce to toss in.
I’ve been really into recreating Asian recipes I ate a lot growing up. This dish is definitely one I highly recommend! It’s packed with nutrients and is so perfectly refreshing in this hot summer weather.
