Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour, which is full of fibre and essential vitamins. This makes soba the most nutritionally beneficial of all the Japanese noodles. Originating in Yunnan, China, soba has been eaten in Japan for centuries and is a popular meal for families on New Year’s Day. Try soba noodles hot in a tasty tsuyu soup, or chilled with a tsuyu dashi based dipping sauce for a cool Japanese summer meal.
