Soba / Buckwheat Noodles

Tuesday, February 9, 2010

Noodles are still on the cards when losing weight, soba or buckwheat noodles that is. They cook in no time and are great with oriental dishes and spice. They taste just like regular noodles, but are much healthier and don't have any murky sachets to worry your weight loss.
The recipe below gives noodles for 2 people.

• 140g soba noodles
• 1 vegetable or chicken stock cube
• 2 pints of water


  1. Add 2 pints of boiling water to a large sauce pan and bring back to the boil.
  2. When the water is bubbling, add the stock cube and salt and stir to make sure it's fully dissolved.
  3. Add the noodles and stir to ensure they don’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Bring the pot back to the boil again. Then reduce the heat to medium/low.
  4. Let it bubble away for 5 minutes. Drain the noodles into a colander and shake to remove excess water.
  5. Divide between two bowls and serve with your favourite sauce.
