Soba Noodles - East meets West

Soba noodles are a great gluten free alternative to the Western Spaghetti. They are made with buckwheat flour and have a nutty taste. When buying Soba noodles read carefully the ingredients list - most of the producers replace a big quantity of the buckwheat flour with wheat. Here in Singapore I can recommend to order Eden Foods selected buckwheat Soba noddles from iherb.

This recipe combines the Asian flavors from Soba and ginger with the Western vegetables. It is perfect for a light lunch and provides you with complex carbohydrates and filling proteins.
