Soba Noodle Soup (Gluten Free & Vegan)
Adding in some traveling for the holidays and I knew I wasn't going to be up for too much.
I grabbed my sister late Wednesday evening and headed into the big city of Harrisburg - or what I like to call "home".
Knowing that Thursday was going to be a busy day in the kitchen prepping and cooking for everyone else's traditional Thanksgiving meal, I decided to get an early start of my dish.
I made a large batch of vegetable broth to which I planned to add some additional vegetables and some King Soba Pumpkin and Ginger Rice Noodles.
I have had this pasta for some time now and struggled to decide exactly what I wanted to make with them and for some reason, this really clicked for me and I knew immediately this is what I was going to make!
- Seaweed (Dulse)
- Star Anise
- Soba Noodles
- Pumpkin Slices
- Gluten Free Soy Sauce (optional)
- Gluten Free Hot Sauce (optional)
I dry toasted the seasonings and seaweed. I then added about 8 cups of water and let everything simmer for about 2 hours before I turned it off to cool.
When dinner was approaching, I added in the pumpkin slices ( I used a fairy tail pumpkin) to steam.
The Soba Noodles were cooked right into the broth - I let it come to a boil and then added the noodles in to cook for about 5 minutes.
At the last minute, I added some of arugula and cilantro.
This made three meals for me and each one I did something slightly different - one time I added gluten free soy sauce, another time, I added hot sauce and another I ate it as-is.
I enjoyed each one for what it was but would likely say the soy sauce variety was my favorite.
The noodles were, of course, everything I thought they would be and then some. The texture was my absolute favorite of any gluten free noodle variety I have EVER had! The taste was subtle on the pumpkin and ginger, but just enough that it added a bit extra to the dish!
Thank you King Soba for such an awesome product! I have my eye on the Ramen, Fair Trade Basmati Brown Rice, and of course the Organic Brown Rice and Wakame version!
