Soba is a thin Japanese noodle made from buckwheat. It has almost 400 years’ history. The noodles are served either chilled with a dipping sauce, or hot in a noodle soup. Both sauces are made of Dashi stock that are made of Kelp and Katsuobushi (dried bonito). Once you gain how to make Soba soup, you will never need to buy shop-selling one, which is healthier style!
Soba contains all nine essential amino acids, including lysin, which is lacking in wheat flour, and soba is gluten free food. Green tea Soba noodles contain real green tea powder and it is more nutritious and you can tantalise your taste buds by the freshest flavourful Soba noodles and hot succulent Tempura.
It is truly worth trying to make Soba noodles from scratch!
