Are you familiar with soba noodles?
Soba noodles are thin Japanese noodles made from buckwheat. Food Republic in 2014 called them Japan’s most underrated noodle (seriously, ramen is good but soba is worlds better). They are traditionally served in broths or with dipping sauces, but there are many ways to enjoy them.
I love the nutty flavor of soba noodles. It makes them as much as part of the recipe as any other ingredient — not just a vessel for carrying sauce to your mouth. Soba noodles are delightful in both hot and cold dishes.
Soba noodles come in bundles — typically three lined up neatly next to each other in a package. They cook very quickly too. And there’s so many ways to enjoy them.
Bold, exciting and flavorful, this dish is a treat to make. Despite the touch of Sriracha sauce in this recipe, these noodles aren’t spicy. It adds a touch of zestiness that’s offset with the other flavors.
