Vegan/Gluten Free Buckwheat (Soba) Noodles

gluten free buckwheat soba noodles

When I went Gluten Free- I assumed Buckwheat Soba Noodles would still be available to me. I soon found out this wasn’t the case- all buckwheat noodles on the Market right now- contain Wheat.

Its time that changed. Maybe you cant buy them at the store.. but now you CAN make them at home!  Vegan and Gluten Free pasta dough has the reputation of  falling apart. Usually you have to roll it out and cut it by hand. With my pasta recipes this will never be the case.  Process this dough as you would any other dough- put it through the hand crank pasta machine or roll it out if you don’t have a machine.  Its handles beautifully no matter what you do to it!

Not only does Buckwheat make fantastic Noodles- But its got some pretty great health benefits. Buckwheat is high In fiber, contains eight essential amino acids, and contains a rich supply of flavonoids, particularly rutin.  And guess what else-  It lowers glucose levels and is beneficial for managing diabetes AND has been found to lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol.  What more could you ask?

With that said- Have Fun making this pasta and EAT YOUR HEART OUT! Here’s the recipe:

I just want to let you know that Eden Foods makes gluten free soba noodles. I’m not sure when they started but FYI.

I don't think it's actually gluten-free. It doesn't contain wheat, but is made on equipment that processes wheat. Even small amounts of wheat/gluten can cause problems in some people. It isn't truly gluten-free if it's in contact with surfaces that process wheat.

Thanks for the recipe. I made the dough as posted but it would not come together. I added two more egg yolks and it was perfect to run through the Cuisinart pasta press. I cooked it for one minute after the water returned to a full boil or about two minutes total time. It made four servings that would pass for handmade in Japan by a skilled artisan. I’ll never eat boxed or frozen soba again.

This is one of the first recipes I created a few years ago. I’ll go back and check the measurements. Thanks for sharing what you did!

This company from the Uk sells gluten free noodles in a gluten free factory. They did have a recall couple years ago but it was contaminated product that came into the factory. It’s been Fixed since then obviously. They are fairly widely available in Canadian health food stores and all of the varieties I have tried before have been fabulous.
