Are Soba Noodles healthy?
Asian food is by far my favorite cuisine. I just love the flavors so much. I also love the amount of healthy produce that is incorporated into every dish. Even if an Asian dish is not traditionally healthy, you can easily make it more nutritious by adding more produce. I still believe everyone is a bit scared of carbs still, because it was so integrated into our brains that pasta and potatoes are unhealthy, when they are not at all!
Asian cuisine obviously has a lot of noodle based recipes. For the longest time I saw these as unhealthy. However it wasn’t until I went vegan that I realized that many of these noodle recipes were actually healthy. I didn’t only realize that they were healthy, but I learned about so many new noodles, like soba noodles featured in this peanut soba noodle recipe. If you are interested in seeing more healthy noodle recipes, I have plenty on my blog.
My go-to noodle recipes:
Soba noodles are noodles made from buckwheat. What is buckwheat? Buckwheat is a grain like seed that makes for delicious and healthy gluten-free food! Buckwheat works a little different than wheat, but is still delicious. Honestly I prefer soba noodles to wheat noodles. I think they hold onto sauces better, and that’s why they are perfect for recipes like this Peanut Soba Noodles!
