Buckwheat noodles are Japanese noodles called soba. Made from buckwheat flour only or buckwheat and wheat flour. Buckwheat noodles are of a similar thickness to spaghetti. They are grey/brown in colour. Some soba are flavoured with green tea and have a blend of other grain flours including quinoa and kamut.
Buy dried from Asian stores or supermarkets with an Asian section.
Store in an airtight container in a cool pantry for six to eight months.
Tips & Tricks:
For people with gluten intolerance soba noodles are a great replacement to pasta - ensure they are made with 100%buckwheat flour.
