Soba noodles is one of my family’s favourite noodles. I introduced this noodles to my family when we came here to Scotland. I bought it out of curiosity because of its dark colour. On checking out, I found that it’s a popular Japanese noodles made from buckwheat flour mixed with wheat flour. Buckwheat flour is made from a non-gluten grain and is more nutritious than wheat flour or rice. It is good for health.
When I first cooked it, my children went ‘Eeeeewwwww!’ on seeing it…..haha. This is because they have never seen dark noodles! Well, look is often deceiving. When they tasted it they found that it was very delicious. I knew my children love soup very much so the very first time I cooked it for them, I had to cook it in soup if I want it to go down well. Really happy that they liked it.
My favourite soup for noodles is usually chicken soup. I like to add dried longan, wolfberries and dates for better nutrients. In Chinese cooking, this is tonic to the body. Here is my Soba Noodles In Chicken Soup recipe. There’s no fixed amount of the different ingredients. Just use the amount that you like.
dried longan (a type of tropical fruit)
sea salt or Kikkoman (to season)
Put everything, except soba noodles, into a pot to boil until the chicken is cooked. Season to taste with sea salt or kikkoman soya sauce.
