What are Soba Noodles? Soba Noodles are Japanese noodles made from the seed of the Fagopyrum tataricum, a flowering plant similar to Quinoa and Amaranth. The seeds are ground into a gluten-free flour used to make the noodles. Buckwheat is a nutrient-dense grain high in fiber and an excellent source of protein containing all the essential amino acids for the body.

These Buckwheat noodles can be served warm, cold, or in soup. We want to share our recipe for Sesame Soba Noodles as a great way to try buckwheat and appreciate its Japanese history. With the rich flavors of soy sauce, roasted sesame oil, ginger, and green onions combined with the earthy and chewy Soba Noodles, it’s certain to be a favorite of Asian food lovers. We hope you enjoy our recipe for Sesame Soba Noodles and that it becomes your favorite gluten-free noodle bowl.

Instructions

Lightly toast the sesame seeds in a small pan, tossing them over medium heat until they are golden and have a strong aroma, then remove from the heat and set aside.
Prepare the soba noodles according to the package instructions but stir them occasionally while boiling to prevent them from clumping.
While the noodles are boiling, add all the sauce ingredients to a large bowl and whisk together.
Using large deep skillet add the peanut oil and bring to high heat then once the oil is hot add the garlic, ginger and green onions and sauté for 3 minutes then mix in the sauce and sauté for another 3 minutes.
By now, the noodles would be finished boiling, strained, and rinsed with cold water and tossed to remove any excess water, then add them to the skillet and toss to coat in the sauce and seasonings mixture.
Remove from the heat once the noodles are fully coated and serve warm in bowls with a sprinkle of the toasted sesame seeds and enjoy.
