Green Soba Noodle Bowls

These green soba noodle bowls are a quick, healthy and refreshing dish to whip up when you’re short on time.

Soba noodles are made from buckwheat, so most brands are naturally gluten-free (but always check if this is important to you).

I’ve topped these with bok choy and cucumber, but you can top them with any vegetable you like – even tofu.

The sweet-and-savoury dressing is what really makes this dish. Top with some chili flakes and black sesame seeds for some extra heat and crunch.
