【What is Soba Noodles? 】
Soba noodle is commonly referred to as a type of thin noodles made from buckwheat flour, or a combination of buckwheat and wheat flours. While the traditional method of making soba consists mainly of buckwheat and water, wheat flour has been added to help hold the noodles together easier during the production.
That is why the most common type of soba you can find in Japan is Hachi-wari soba (八割そば), which is made of a mixture of 80% buckwheat flour and 20% wheat flour. Nowadays, you can even find soba noodles flavored with other fun ingredients such as matcha green tea, ume plum, and wild yam. It is a lavish soba with a rich flavor of powdered tea and soda powder.
【How To Cook? 】
1）To cook soba noodles, bring water to a boil in a large pot. When the water is boiling, add in the soba noodles in a circular motion, separating the noodles from each other.
2）Cook the noodles for 4-5 minutes or according to the package instructions (each brand is slightly different).
3）Stir the noodles once in a while so they don’t stick to each other. Check the tenderness and do not overcook.
4）Once it is cooked, you want to quickly drain the soba noodles and rinse under running cold water to get rid of the starch and prevent from further cooking.
5）This is a very important step for getting the best texture. Shake off the sieve to drain the water completely before you serve it cold or hot with a broth.
