Hey guys! Happy Sunday! Hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day! We had some friends over on Saturday and had a sushi and rolls party! I love Asian food and if I had to eat Asian food everyday for the rest of my life, I think I could do it.
One of the things I love so much about Asian foods is that you can almost always find a healthy option, you can find a dish that involves a lot of vegetables and a lot of my favorite Asian foods are soups or have a great broth. It’s still pretty cold here in Wisconsin and these soba noodle broth bowls have become one of my favorites to make, for lunch or dinner.
They are super easy and the broth only requires a handful of ingredients. I got the idea for this broth when making one of my favorite Chinese soups, which I will be sharing on Friday. This dish is healthy, light and delicious! It has cabbage, fresh veggies on top as a garnish with some pan fried tofu and soba noodles.
Soba noodles, or buckwheat noodles, are a staple here at my house. I seriously make soba noodles as often as I do regular pasta. Buckwheat noodles are super healthy and fat and cholesterol-free and are a good source of nutrients like manganese, lean protein, carbohydrates and thiamine (or vitamin B-1). Also, since buckwheat does not contain gluten, buckwheat noodles are a good choice for gluten-free diets. Similar to whole grains, buckwheat it is a great source of heart-healthy fiber, which helps keep you full longer.
- 6 cups chicken stock
- 1 heaping teaspoon fresh grated ginger
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce + more if desired
- ½ head of cabbage, chopped or shredded
- 9 oz. soba (buckwheat) noodles, cooked
- Pan fried tofu, sliced thin
- pickled radishes*
- shredded carrots
- roasted sesame seeds
- roasted seaweed (gim), shredded thin
- green onions, diced
- Using a heavy bottomed pot or dutch oven over high heat, bring your chicken stock, grated ginger and soy sauce to a boil. Once boiling, add the shredded cabbage and turn down to a medium simmer. Let cook for another 5 to 6 minutes, or until the cabbage is softened. Taste and season with more low sodium soy sauce if needed.
- To assemble your broth bowl: Place some soba noodles into your bowl and pour in the broth, making sure to get some cabbage too. Top the noodles with pan fried tofu, pickled radishes and carrots. Sprinkle on the roasted sesame seeds, gim and diced green onions. Serve immediately and enjoy.
