Soba noodles are Japanese noodles made with buckwheat flour. In fact, “soba” is the word for buckwheat in Japanese. In Japan, it’s customary to loudly slurp the noodles when eating them with chopsticks. They’re traditionally served with a dipping sauce on the side, but we made these with the chicken, vegetables, and sesame-peanut sauce right on top.
