Are you sensitive to wheat or gluten?  Have no Fear Soba noodles are here!  I was first introduced to Soba Noodle Soup during the lunch time rush in Tokyo.  It is a favorite for lunch all over Japan. Chef Rebecca had made it into a lovely side dish or a main dish.

Soba noodles are made with Buckwheat, which is a different grain than Wheat. Buckwheat is gluten-free it doesn't have gluten in it.  So for anyone that was avoiding all types of pasta because they need to be gluten-free this is a great substitute.  It is hardy enough to mix with vegetables, beans or meats.  It also cooks in minutes. So it is a quick way to enjoy a pasta side dish or main dish.

You can use it to replace your favorite long pasta dish.  It is a great option.  You can find Soba noodles in your local grocery stores in the international isle.  Make sure to read the label to make sure the manufacturer has not added wheat.

Since these are recipes found in Rebecca Katz new book The Longevity Kitchen I can't give the recipes here but the book is worth the money.  You will be able to make several of the dishes to your taste buds delight.  To find out more information about @RebeccaKatzYum or to purchase The Longevity Kitchen go to
