Today, on the way home from school, my daughter tells me she’s hungry and asks me to make her buckwheat noodles when we get home. . I love that she knows what they are and is asking for them! With buckwheat noodles (or soba noodles), I love that they are so easy to make, it takes less than 10 minutes for everything and it’s healthy! Believe me, she doesn’t ask for soba noodles everyday, but when she does, I am very happy to oblige! 🙂
As a side or main dish, soba noodles are delicious. I hope you enjoy!
