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.

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces Soba Noodles

  • 1 tablespoon Peanut Oil

  • 2 Garlic Cloves - Minced

  • 4 grams Ginger - Minced

  • 3 Green Onions - chopped

  • 3 tablespoons Sesame Seeds

Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Roasted Sesame Oil

  • 1/4 cup Japanese Soy Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon Muscovado or Kokuto Sugar

  • Salt & Black Pepper to taste

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.
