Recipe: Soba Noodle Salad (V + GF)

This soba noodle salad recipe is an all-time favourite of mine! It’s packed with fibre-rich buckwheat noodles and Vitamin-C rich veggies. It’s super easy to prepare and makes for the perfect lunch. I love it warmed up or served as leftovers for lunch!

This recipe is a super underrated dish – it’s packed with protein from the buckwheat flour and wheat flour noodles. It’s suitable for vegans or meat-eaters, too, just add your favourite protein option (my favourite is organic tofu) before sautéing the veggies.
