Have you ever tried soba noodles? Do you know what soba is? After I posted the recipe for this Soba Noodle Stir Fry I heard from readers that they have always wanted to try soba but didn’t know what to make with it. Or that they love soba but don’t cook with it often. I can relate to those comments. I love soba and always enjoy a good noodle bowl, but don’t seem to make it enough. A stir fry meal tossed with soba noodles comes together so quickly and the health benefits in a dish like that are of none other. If you didn’t already know, soba is made from buckwheat which is high in protein (among other nutritional benefits) and does not contain wheat at all (which you may not have thought considering it’s name) so is perfect for those following a gluten free diet.
