Meatless Monday: Soba Stir Fry

Fresh. Healthy. Satisfying. Delicious. You can’t go wrong with this recipe… Soba noodles (pictured above)

Made from buckwheat flour, soba noodles have a nutty flavor and work well as a base for stir-fries and salads. They offer an alternative to wheat pasta if you follow a gluten-free diet, but check the label to make sure the brand you choose doesn’t contain wheat ingredients.
