Top soba noodles with sesame paste and your protein of choice for a simple summer lunch.
The Asian Grandmothers Cookbook
Soba, made from buckwheat flour, is prettily packed in bundles about 8 to a package. Note that many sobas are also made with wheat flour so it isn’t a gluten-free food. Juwari, the finest – and usually most expensive – soba is made entirely of buckwheat, but please, please read the labels especially if you are allergic or intolerant to wheat!
This is turning out to be my go-to recipe for a simple summer lunch. It’s done in 15 minutes, even less if you make the sesame paste ahead and refrigerate. Top the noodles with whatever you have on hand – poached chicken, pan-fried tofu, pickles, your options are only limited to what you have in your fridge!
