Soba noodles, made from buckwheat, are a staple food in Japanese cuisine that over the years have gained great popularity in the West. Easy to prepare and fast to consume, soba make a regular appearance in the diets of health-conscious foodies.
Served cold, soba are the perfect base for summer salads—where boiling water is the only cooking required—and the resulting bowl of scrumptious, tamari-doused or sesame-scented noodles, along with an assortment of fresh veggies such as carrots, bok choy, cucumber and scallions, satisfies our craving for fresh summer flavors and health-promoting, all-natural foods.
While we have access to numerous brands offering a wealth of different varieties, one particular brand—King Soba, a family run business based in the UK—has caught our attention as not only offering a delicious array of organic soba noodles but also one that believes strongly in the importance of healthy eating and sustainable agriculture. We’re proud to offer two delicious (wheat and gluten free!) varieties: Buckwheat Sobaand Black Rice Soba
A safe alternative to wheat noodles or pasta for those with gluten sensitivity, or for those simply wanting to make a change, King Soba noodles are a fantastic addition to a healthy summer diet.
