Canoodle the Noodle

Busy weeknights can make planning a dinner the whole family will enjoy a struggle—until now! Our simple sesame ginger soba noodles are the perfect one-pot meal for families on the move. They’re ready in just 10 minutes and can be made hot or cold for a dish that’s a winner all year long!

The secret is in the Asian-inspired sauce that comes together quickly and tastes amazing over protein-packed soba noodles, a great alternative to your favorite pasta. (Hint: Authentic soba noodles are made from 100 percent buckwheat flour, so avoid brands that add another type of flour, including white and wheat).

Soba noodles are also a good source of fiber, thiamine (also known as vitamin B1) and manganese. Topped with your favorite veggies, this is a nutritious meal you’ll want to add to your weekly lineup!
