Reviews For Buckwheat Soba Pasta

Great for gluten free
I love that Thrive carries these because when I looked at the selection at my local grocery store, all of their soba noodles were cut with wheat flour, they weren't 100% buckwheat. I had always assumed soba noodles were exclusively buckwheat, but I guess to make them cheaper some companies cut it with wheat. These are great for me as I'm trying to stay on a gluten-free diet.
We eat Gluten free in our household and these are a great replacement for wheat noodles or the usual rice noodles.

Wheat-free and Great Texture
It's hard to find soba noodles that are made from 100% buckwheat. These wheat-free noodles are easy on the tummy and have firm texture. The cost on Thrive also makes them a little easier on the wallet.
I enjoyed these a great deal. Cheaper than my supermarket
I made a grilled eggplant and soba noodle dish with these noodles and the soba was amazing! Great taste and texture.

Good for Soba
I'm used to soba noodles that aren't 100% buckwheat, so these weren't what I am used to. I'm not a soba expert, but these were just fine. My wife is gluten intolerant so these are a great for us. I made miso soba with these noodles. I cooked these per instructions and they came out al dente at the recommended 8 minutes. I've ordered these again because my wife and I enjoyed them.
Good buckwheat flavor
This is a good healthy pasta that I eat instead of whole wheat. As the label says, buckwheat isn't made from wheat, but it is healthy and natural and has a great flavor. I use it in place of my normal pasta with tomato sauce, or if I'm making a Thai or Chinese dish, I'll mix this in for a unique taste. It's high in fiber and low in fat.

How to Cook
These are interesting noodles, but I'll admit that I had to do a Google search to figure out exactly how to cook them. It turns out that you add a bit of peanut oil into the water, and you cool and boil the noodles three times over an 8-minute total cooking time. That makes them taste as close to the traditional soba noodles as possible. These aren't restaurant-quality, but they're definitely good, and I enjoy them.

I haven't had the chance to try this in a bunch of different ways, but I have to say I liked it cold with just a little bit of olive oil and parm cheese. It was really good. I want to try this for a pasta sushi or cut up and cooked an placed on a salad. I think it would taste amazing. I really like the flavor of this Buckwheat Soba Pasta.
