Soba noodles is very new to me. I have never used them before but i have seen so many recipe using them and i know that they are good for you..These noodles are made with buckwheat and it is chewy and has a more robust texture..
Normally soba noodles are used in making noodle salad and soups since it has a much meatier taste. I made this simple noodle and chicken salad. If you are vegetarian, instead of chicken add variety of veggies. The dressing which i used in this is really intense and it takes the dish to a whole new level..Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
