Sesame Soba Noodles

I was introduced to Soba Noodles a few years ago, and it has only been recently when I grabbed a packet of Soba from the supermarket to make something at home. I think the attraction was that it said 98% fat free on the packaging LOL. For someone who has been doing a lot of Vegan at home lately, hello! everything that is lower in calories must be bought!

I made this dish during a very full on week. I just did not have the time to get into a huge recipe idea and this was just perfect. If you are a big fan of 2 min instant noodles, you so should throw that in the bin and replace it with this. I know I always say that my recipe idea was a hit with the husband and the kid, but guess what they both loved it. My daughter thought the noodles were a lot of fun, I had no intention of serving this to her but she found this much more fascinating to eat than her dinner
