Dee’s Buckwheat Noodles & Shredded Cabbage in a Soy, Sesame &Chilli Dressing

28 Jan

Buckwheat Noodles aka Soba Noodles are gluten-free as they are no relation to wheat (besides what the name might suggest!) (make sure you buy 100% buckwheat noodles – asian stores and health stores will stock these).

Buckwheat is also a warming food that will help stave off winter chills.

Serves 1


1 serving Japanese Soba Noodles (buckwheat noodles)

2 Savoy Cabbage leaves


1 Clove of garlic crushed

1 tsp of grated ginger root

1 tbsp of honey (replace with agave nectar if vegan)

1 tbsp of low salt soy sauce

1 tsp of sesame oil

1 red chilli

1 tbsp of sesame seeds

This recipe is ready in a few minutes.  Boil the Noodles for a few mins in water, toast the sesame seeds on a pan and remove.  Mix together all the dressing ingredients with a fork.  Wash and shred the cabbage and place on pan for a few minutes.  Mix everything together in a bowl.  Enjoy!  If you want to make a complete protein out of this dish add some mushrooms also.

This dish will give you:-


9g of protein

39.7g Carbohydrate

11.1g sugars

9.2g fat

(1.3g of which saturates)

2.6g fibre

1.5g salt

This food is very low in Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Vitamin K and Manganese, and a very good source of Vitamin C.
