Recipes for Cold Soba Noodles

Soba noodles are usually your best bet for cold noodle dishes, although rice noodles can work too. Japanese soba noodles are made from buckwheat and are traditionally served chilled with a dipping sauce. They have a slightly earthy or nutty flavour which pairs wonderfully with umami notes and the refreshing raw veggies of a salad.

This peanut noodle salad recipe serves two.
