Shanghai Buckwheat Noodles (Gluten-Free, Vegan)
One of the most flavourful noodle dishes is the Shanghai Buckwheat Noodles. When following a gluten-free diet, a delicious noodle dish is always popular. In this recipe, I used buckwheat noodles, also called soba noodles, because they have a good texture and a mildly nutty flavour.
The veggies such as Nappa cabbage, carrots, bean sprouts and green onions are cooked in a gingery garlic sauce and tossed with the buckwheat noodles. The recipe is super easy and makes for a perfect weeknight meal when you are short on time.
To finish these tasty noodles, I added green onions and crunchy sesame seeds. This gluten-free Shanghai buckwheat noodle dish can be served as a side with protein or as a main.
♥ Are buckwheat noodles healthy!
Buckwheat noodles are highly nutritious with a good source of manganese, lean protein, and thiamine, lower in carbs and calories compared to rice or corn noodles. The authentic buckwheat noodles should be made only with buckwheat flour, making them naturally gluten-free. However, many brands add wheat flour, mostly because of the cost factor. When buying buckwheat noodles, make sure the only ingredient is buckwheat flour.
What I love about this gluten-free noodle dish, you can choose any vegetable to add as long as it is thinly sliced. Some of my favourites are bell peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, bok choy and snow peas.
