Soba noodles are buckwheat noodles from Japan. In reading online, I found that buckwheat is actually something that is recommended to be added to a diabetic diet! It can actually help lower blood sugar!
Soba noodles are silly easy to cook - they only take about 4 minutes to boil. So far, the way I've fixed them is this:
(I don't have any quantities really, so I'm kind of guessing!)
In a wok or deep skillet, put about 1 tbsp of olive oil to heat. Add in about 1 cup each of cooked, diced chicken, chopped broccoli, and shelled edamame. (I use frozen veggies and pre-cooked frozen chicken.) Sauté until the vegetables and chicken are heated through. Meantime, boil your water for the soba noodles and cook the noodles.
For the sauce, I'm using a soy ginger sauce I found in the grocery store. It is one of the few mix sauces that was low in sugar. It's yummy too! I add in some chopped ginger and garlic, a few drizzles of sesame oil for taste, and let this cook together. Drain the noodles and add to the mix. Voila - you have a tasty, healthy dinner!
Have you ever cooked with soba noodles? Any other recipe ideas for me?
