Simple Soba Soup
A storm has moved into town and what could be more comforting on a cold day than homemade soup. I was watching Will & Grace reruns (Season 6 Episode 12) where Grace obsesses over soba noodles and I decided I wanted to make my own soba noodles and a simple soba soup. Start to finish I had these noodles and the soup made in an hour.
I took this recipe from Saveur but cheated a bit in that I used a stand mixer to knead the dough and a pasta roller to roll and cut the noodles. Made of mostly buckwheat flour and a little all-purpose flour this dough was SO easy to work with. I only used about a third of these noodles in the soup so the rest I dried out on the countertop for about 8 hours before storing in a plastic bag and freezing.
When looking at the history of the soba noodle, which originated in Japan in the 1600s, I discovered that soba noodles were a solution to thiamine deficiencies in Tokyo due to excessive white rice consumption.
