Know how - Soba noodles
These buckwheat noodles can be found in Sainsbury’s, Asian and health food stores, or online. If you can’t get hold of them, wholewheat spaghetti or linguine are good alternatives, or you could use thin Asian rice noodles, which are available in many supermarkets.

Method

  1. Cook the noodles in boiling water according to pack instructions, about 7 mins, then rinse under cold running water until cool. Drain well.

  2. Tip into a bowl and toss with the spring onions, lime zest and juice, and soy sauce.
