Crispy Tofu Soba Noodles

Soba noodles are Japanese noodles made with buckwheat flour. They look and taste similar to traditional spaghetti, but pack more fiber and protein per serving than wheat pasta. On their own, soba noodles lack the B-vitamins and iron typically found in wheat pasta, but by pairing them with the crispy tofu, your meal will be nutritionally complete. Despite the name, buckwheat flour is naturally gluten-free. You can find store-bought varieties made from 100% buckwheat flour, but be sure to read the label if you're looking for gluten-free, because many are made with a mix of buckwheat and wheat flours.
