MAKING SOBA NOODLE SOUP
Cooking & Preparation
Soba noodles are made of buckwheat as well as regular wheat and have a subtle ‘healthy’ flavour. Most other noodles could be used here if you prefer. Likewise, the veg can be varied to suit your taste,baby spinach would be preffered. Don’t forget that the noodles are going to keep cooking in the broth after you’ve served up so best to slightly undercook first.
1 1/2 cups vegetable stock
handful soba noodles (approx 50g or 2oz)
3 heads baby bok choy, leaves separated
large pinch chilli flakes, optional
1 – 2 tablespoons soy sauce
Bring stock to the boil in a medium saucepan. Add noodles and simmer for 2 minutes.Add bok choy and chilli and soy sauce and simmer for another minute or until noodles are only just cooked.
Remove from the heat. Taste and add extra soy if needed. Serve hot.
