I love all sorts of noodles but if I have to choose one of my favorite noodles, it would probably be Japanese soba, or buckwheat noodles. There are many reasons why I love soba: the slippery and smooth texture and the subtle taste of the buckwheat flour. Served cold or hot with a broth, soba never fails to satisfy my palate. Another thing that I love about soba is the convenience of preparing the noodles. Soba usually comes in individual serving bundles, so there is no prep work of measuring, soaking, and rinsing involved. All I have to do is peel off the paper wrapper that binds the noodles together, and off they go into a pot of boiling water, and in a few minutes, the soba noodles are ready to be served.
This 15-minute soba noodle soup is the easiest and quickest way to prepare a quick lunch. It really does take only 15 minutes and you have a great serving of healthy and delicious soba in a delicious soup. You can use a variety of toppings like my recipe, or you can add shrimp, green peas, spinach, or anything you like.
I make this soba noodle soup recipe over and over again, but it has never failed to delight me. Try it and I am sure you will enjoy it!
