Soba noodles in a hurry

Soba noodles are a dinnertime miracle. They cook in about 3 minutes, and they feel and feel like spaghetti, but are healthier and higher in nutrients. They also taste great, and even the fussiest child will swallow them with enthusiasm.

This is an excellent dish to keep on hand when you don't have time and a lot to serve. For me, soba noodles are a pantry staple.

Buckwheat soba noodles

Buckwheat is known as soba in Japanese. Soba noodles are thin noodles made from buckwheat flour or a mixture of wheat flour and buckwheat flour (Nagano soba). To get the most nutrition from soba noodles, look for products made entirely from buckwheat.

How to Cook Soba Noodles

Buckwheat pasta is less forgiving than regular pasta. Overcooking results in a soft, sticky ball of pasta. There are several techniques for cooking pasta that prevent this from happening:

Is there anything you can do to prevent soba noodles from sticking together?

There is a lot of water. Make sure you put enough water in your bowl. You don't want the pasta to become lumpy while cooking.

Before you add the noodles, allow the water to boil.

Don't overcook them - soba noodles cook quickly and generally cook within 3-5 minutes. You want them to have a bit of softness (still chewy and not too mushy). Before you cook the noodles, read the package instructions.

Rinse with cold water - after they are cooked, drain them in a colander and rinse with cold water. Stir them with your fingertips to remove any extra starch and prevent them from sticking to each other.

Drizzle of olive oil - Add a little olive oil to the pasta as an extra precaution to prevent them from sticking together.

Is it possible to eat gluten-free soba noodles?

If you're gluten-free, that's great news!! Soba noodles made entirely from buckwheat are gluten-free. Check the label to make sure the ingredients list only buckwheat and not other flour. Soba noodles that contain some wheat naturally contain gluten and are therefore not suitable for a gluten-free diet, especially for people with celiac disease.
