Default Soba Noodles

I had some of these noodles for the first time the other day, and they were very good. I decided to read up on what I had eaten and was surprised to find:

The World's Healthiest Foods claims that a diet rich in buckwheat, the grain used to make soba noodles, can contribute to your cardiovascular health by lowering your blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Buckwheat is high in flavonoids, antioxidants that protect your levels of good cholesterol from free radicals. The buckwheat used to make soba noodles also contains magnesium, a mineral that works to lower your blood pressure and improve your blood flow.

I'll have to take your word for it, Chowder . I don't even like regular pancakes. Good idea though for the pancake lovers.

You shouldn't have a problem finding them, Lefty. I found them in the Asian section. The ones I got are pre-cooked in vacuum sealed pkgs, so....bonus.... they are quick and easy too. Ka-Me brand (think that's right)

I shall do the taste test when I can find the uncooked. I've had the pre-cooked udon and thought they were pretty good too.

Edit to add: Q,Sis, I haven't tried this yet, but it sounds good. http://budgetbytes.blogspot.com/2011...ecipe-143.html
I've just begun experimenting with these, so no tried and true yet.
