Soba Noodles with Peanut Sauce

Soba noodles are  Japanese noodles made from buckwheat flour. It’s a little lower in calorie than a regular wheat pasta, it’s grain free and it’s an amazing alternative for those people who can’t have wheat. It’s rich in phytonutrients which are antioxidants that can prevent a variety of diseases according to many experts.

I’m a big fan of soba noodles, I add it to my stir-fry veggies or chicken soup versus using the rice noodles.
