Akagi Dried Buckwheat Noodles 270g
Akagi dried soba noodles are a fine buckwheat-based noodle, and are produced in Japan's famous wheat district. The buckwheat gives the noodles are firmer texture and nutty taste. Soba noodles would traditionally be cut by knife rather than rolled, so the noodles have a distinctive square profile. Enjoy hot in a dashi based broth, or cold with a dipping sauce with a wasabi and spring onion garnish.
To cook the dried soba noodles
- Bring a pan of water to boil (for 90g noodles use 1l of water)
- Add noodles to the pan and stir occasionally
- Simmer for 4 minutes
- Drain and wash immediately in cold water. Serve warm in soup or cold with udon dipping sauce (tsuyu), a blend of dashi stock, soy sauce and sweet mirin rice wine.
