Buckwheat isn’t just the name of a Little Rascals character.

It’s also a plant that happens to confusingly named, considering it doesn’t contain wheat. In fact, it’s totally gluten-free. Buckwheat is actually more closely related to rhubarb and sorrel, and it’s a great source of protein, fiber, and B vitamins.

Delicious, nutty soba noodles are made from buckwheat, and they’re a dietary staple in Japan. In your kitchen, wherever you are, they’re a perfect base for a flavorful, healthy dish like this one.
