It’s just one of those days when you are so, so hungry, but you don’t want to be cooking in the kitchen all night. I opened my pantry and found a packet of buckwheat noodles and a bottle of mushroom based Soy-sauce. I immediately thought about a stir-fry and my mouth began to water. That was what I needed to make to hit the spot!
I was not sure if I wanted to make cold soba noodles, Zaru Soba, or HOT, like ramen (noodle soup). Soba is the Japanese name for buckwheat (also means the noodles made from buckwheat flour) and Zaru is a bamboo basket/place setting.
