This is Kine's recipe for an incredibly quick and easy nutrient-packed soba noodle dish. Soba noodles are made from buckwheat and are a really tasty gluten-free alternative for regular noodles or pasta.

Kine's Soba Noodle Sensation (serves 1-2. gluten free. vegetarian.)

kims noodles


  • Packet soba noodles (use the packet's recommended serving size)
  • 1 Tbs sesame oil
  • 2 Tbs soy sauce (or coconut aminos for soy-free option, or tamari for gluten-free option)
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • 1 chilli, chopped
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 small knob of ginger
  • Soft tofu


  • Boil a bunch of noodles according to the packet, run them under cold water for a summer dish.
  • Make a marinade using sesame oil, soy sauce, a dash of water, garlic and chilli.
  • Grate over some raw zuchini, ginger and soft tofu.
  • Add the marinade!

Takes me less than 10 mins and I love it so much! You can add whatever variations to it; sometimes I boil silverbeet in with the noodles.
