This Asian-inspired dish is really simple to prepare, filling and very tasty. I have included sesame oil as a dressing, but it would be great with some coconut aminos too (see out guide to coconut products to learn more about coconut aminos).
Soba noodles are made from a pseudo-grain named buckwheat. They have a lower Glycemic Load than regular noodles and are a great alternative if you’re on a Candida diet. When you buy them, make sure to check the ingredients carefully. Some soba noodles (especially cheaper brands) contain a mix of buckwheat and wheat. Look for the brands that are entirely buckwheat, as glutenous grains like wheat can irritate the intestinal membrane.
