My mother has been serving up delish and earthy soba noodles to my sister, dad, and me since I can remember!
We ate them with everything from a simple miso broth to tofu, fish, and veggies. Soba is still one of my favorites because certain varieties are gluten-free, high in protein, and also packed with calcium and iron. You can’t get that from any old pasta.
