I read that soba noodles are made from buckwheat and have more protein and fibre than many noodles. I wasn't exactly sure what to do with soba, so I just put something together and it was a nice surprise.
1 small package of soba noodles
1 head of broccoli, chopped small and lightly steamed*
2 chopped green onions
1 handful of chopped toasted walnuts
2 T soy sauce
1 t bottled grated ginger
1 T sesame oil
2 T olive oil
2 T lime juice
1. Cook the noodles in boiling water for about 2 minutes. Drain and run under cold running water.
2. Whisk sauce together in a large mixing bowl.
3. Add broccoli and noodles to the bowl, stir and serve.
*To quickly steam broccoli in the microwave, place it in a bowl with a small amount of water and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Pierce the wrap a couple of times with a fork, and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Let sit covered for about 2 more minutes.
