10 Scrumptious Soba Noodle Bowl Recipes

 

Some of the simplest and greatest meals often involve pasta, but if you’re feeling stuck in a pasta rut,  why not switch to soba? These Japanese noodles make the most satisfying noodle bowls you'll ever make. Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour and many brands are gluten-free, but check the package to determine if wheat flour has been added. You can buy soba at Asian grocery stores, or the Asian section of your grocery stores. These modest noodles have a delicious nutty flavor and are the perfect accompaniment to crunchy vegetables and grilled meat. Here are scrumptious soba noodle bowl recipes to try.
