Vegan Dish: Soba Noodles with Swiss Chard Recipe~

 Choosing to eat a plant based diet, has given me the opportunity to explore new foods, to discover some interesting recipes and try them out. Even though, most of my dishes are salads, which I love, I also like to experiment with foods I’ve never eaten before. Like Soba.

     What is Soba?  Soba are Japanese thin noodles made of at least 30% buckwheat. Since buckwheat has a tendency not to adhere closely, the noodles also include regular wheat flower. They look very much like spaghetti noodles except they are a light brown in color. They are quite popular in Japan and gaining popularity in many other places. They also form the basis for many traditional Japanese dishes.

If you have a Asian Market near by, you can get Soba Noodles there or order some online.

1 1/2 bundle soba noodles
4 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
