King Soba Noodles

For the food-shopaholic that I am, these black rice noodles didn’t go unnoticed though on the bottom shelf. Indeed any unusual ingredient would magnetise my attention (as Boyfriendlovlie would put it!); I’d just grab, read the label for any non-vegan culprits, and simultaneously grinning mentally at the thought of the creations I could be making with this. If I happen to see a vegan logo on the package, it’s tossed in the basket, no second thoughts whatsoever!

Well this was the fate of these King Soba Black Rice Noodles along with the Brown Rice and Wakame variety. I just couldn’t not taste those!

Noodles, the rice ones are my favourite type. I love them in miso soup with veggies. Crunchy and juicy, that’s how I like my veggies with my noodles!

These noodles taste really nice on their own. So, not much flavour is required for the rest. I only tossed some vegetables in a pan with a bit of teriyaki sauce, pan fried some tofu, topped the boiled noodles with them and voilà! I like my noodles in miso soup, so I also had some miso to go with them.

I found these noodles in my local Spar in Dublin, Ireland. I’ve also seen them in some health shops. Do give them a try if you come across them. They are also gluten-free! There are a few more varieties in the same brand that I have yet to try.

    yum yum. i’ve always wanted to try soba noodles but could never find any local stores that had them. update us on another box of healthy surprise! I’m thinking of ordering them and I was wondering if it was worth it

      If you are not allergic to nuts and seeds (most of the snacks are nuts / seeds based), it’s worth a try. I did try some despite the allergy (bad idea from my part though, ‘coz I had to take my allergy syrup afterward!). Anyway, the flavoured nuts-seeds mix were really tasty. I liked the fruity things too.

      I haven’t ordered another box because they no longer ship international. 🙁

    I love soba – never seen black ones though – makes a dinner seem so much more dramatic! It made me think of the black food dinners from the French Revolution – if only they’d had soba noodles!

      You’ve put it right! Dramatic is the word! It really makes dinner look special with those.
