Soba Noodles with Spicy Pomegranate Sauce

Soba noodles have become so popular that you could probably find them in most local grocery stores – you can even find them as a “broth bowl” at Panera.  These noodles are made from buckwheat flour and have a correspondingly strong, nutty flavor. Many buckwheat noodles also have some wheat flour in them, which means they’re not gluten-free. However, pure buckwheat soba can be found, especially at Asian specialty stores or on-line.  If you want a nice explanation on the difference between soba, udon, and rice noodles, take a look at the article on Thekitchn.com. In this article, we show you a simple recipe to make a very tasty spicy sauce for the noodles, using The Serious Foodie Pomegranate Finishing Sauce (click HERE to enter our e-commerce store).
