Soba Noodles With Vegetables

This is an easy noodle dish which can be prepared in less than 15 minutes with a simple Asian vinegarette and is quite healthy compared to the other type of noodles. This is one dish I always do when I don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen.

The word Soba comes from the Japanese name for buckwheat. Soba noodles are thin noodles made from buckwheat flour. It has high nutritional value. It is high in Thiamin (vitamin b1), protein and soluble fibre. It is also free from gluten.

Soba noodles with vegetables is a vegan dish. I have used soy sauce as a base for the vinegarette. You can substitute soy sauce with tamari sauce to make it gluten-free.
