Perfect as a side dish or a simple entrée, this soba noodles recipe is a delicious dish to whip up in a jiffy. The noodles are coated in a sweet ginger sauce that makes the noodles absolutely irresistible.
Soba is the Japanese term for buckwheat, and soba noodles are typically made of buckwheat flour or a combination of buckwheat flour and another wheat flour. Soba noodles are generally thin too, unlike the thicker udon noodles.
They make a great base for a noodle salad with edamame beans and other crunchy veggies, or a side to chicken or baked fish. Teriyaki salmon, for example, would pair really well with this soba noodles recipe.
The ginger sauce that coats these soba noodles is both sweet and slightly spicy from the chili oil and ginger, making it balanced yet bold in flavor. The best part is that you can easily store leftovers for the next day and simply reheat when you’re ready to serve; the noodles taste just as good!
