A bowl of soba noodles topped with a rainbow of vegetables cooked in the most flavourful coconut ginger sauce. This gluten-free noodle dish is oozing with so much flavour and various textures, a bowl of comforting goodness! Authentic soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour and are often used in Japanese recipes. Buckwheat flour has a delicate nutty taste, is high in fiber and is naturally gluten-free. In this vegan recipe, I first cooked the veggies such as butternut squash, mushrooms, baby sweet corn, zucchini, tofu, summer sugar snap peas and baby spinach in a light coconut ginger sauce. Then I topped warm noodles with the tender veggies with the explosively delicious sauce. This Asian inspired vegan noodle dish is healthy and simple to make. Enjoy!
