When it comes to gluten-free noodles, Soba (buckwheat noodles) are my favourite. They have a firm texture, and a nutty flavour, not to mention the noodles are nutritionally packed in comparison to other gluten-free noodles. Initially, when I made this recipe, I used chicken, but today I have adapted this amazing noodle dish to a vegan recipe so everyone can enjoy it. In addition, I made a spectacular sauce that will make you drool, tying everything together perfectly. For Monday night dinner, I love this spicy soba noodle dish because I can have it on the table in less than 30 minutes. Enjoy!
Here is a quick and easy mid-week dinner meal idea, Achiote Pan Seared Chicken on Southwest Rainbow Hash.
Achiote oil, what the heck is that? I have it on hand to use in Mexican cooking. The achiote oil lends the little extra bit of authentic flavor and red color to the chicken. It’s simply annatto seeds that are steeped in oil. You can read more about it here in a post I did a while back. I like to use it now and then and it works perfectly here, but feel free to use regular vegetable oil if you don’t want to make it or have on hand, it’s optional.
