Green Tea Soba Noodles
Recently we've been making different kinds of soba noodles with a ton of raw and roasted veggies like sweet potatoes, cucumbers, mushrooms, cilantro, beets, onions, garlic, bell peppers and so on. I like to add raisins and peanuts on top. So, this time, around I prepared some green tea noodles and served them with delicious fresh vegetables.
Soba noodles are traditionally made with buckwheat - a nutritious seed packed full of fiber, magnesium, lysine and amino acids. But be sure to check the packet labels. Many brands supplement their buckwheat noodles with wheat flour. So, if you want to be gluten-free make sure you choose 100% buckwheat soba.
