When I went Gluten Free- I assumed Buckwheat Soba Noodles would still be available to me. I soon found out this wasn’t the case- all buckwheat noodles on the Market right now- contain Wheat.
Its time that changed. Maybe you cant buy them at the store.. but now you CAN make them at home! Vegan and Gluten Free pasta dough has the reputation of falling apart. Usually you have to roll it out and cut it by hand. With my pasta recipes this will never be the case. Process this dough as you would any other dough- put it through the hand crank pasta machine or roll it out if you don’t have a machine. Its handles beautifully no matter what you do to it!
Not only does Buckwheat make fantastic Noodles- But its got some pretty great health benefits. Buckwheat is high In fiber, contains eight essential amino acids, and contains a rich supply of flavonoids, particularly rutin. And guess what else- It lowers glucose levels and is beneficial for managing diabetes AND has been found to lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol. What more could you ask?
With that said- Have Fun making this pasta and EAT YOUR HEART OUT! Here's the recipe:
Vegan/ Gluten Free Buckwheat (Soba) Noodles
