What are Soba Noodles?

Soba noodles are a famous Japanese pasta made from buckwheat flour and water. Sometimes they also contain whole wheat flour to keep the noodles in better tact. Soba cooks relatively just like any other pasta, except they have a habit of sticking together, so make sure not to overcrowd them and to stir often! Soba noodles can be eaten hot or cold, and they have a very plain flavor, making them a versatile ingredient.

Your New Favorite Cold Noodle Dish

Cold noodles might seem.. off-putting. However, these cold soba noodles tossed with veggie slaw and spicy peanut sauce are anything but off-putting. Seriously, I could eat these noodles EVERY day.

I toss cold soba noodles with my creamy, slightly spicy peanut sauce with shredded veggies, such as purple cabbage, carrots, Brussels sprouts, and green onions. I garnish the dish with peanuts, white sesame seeds, and fresh cilantro leaves.

Not only does this salad look beautiful because of all of the colors, but it tastes even better! This vegan soba noodle salad is creamy, crunchy, spicy, and always hits the spot. Feel free to cook up your favorite tofu and serve it atop the noodle dish for an even higher protein meal!
