Warm Soba (Buckwheat Noodles) salad with soy-lime dressing

This dish’s inspiration comes from Japan. Soba noodles are an important staple of the Japanese cuisine. There is a dish in the Japanese cuisine with cold soba noodles, but for this post, I turned it more in a type of warm salad.

I got inspired for this recipe by the lovely Abby who runs the blog “Welcome to Abby’s Kitchen” – it’s amazing, please go have a look at her beautiful collection of innovative and healthy recipes!

Quinoa-Taboule-3

Quinoa Tabouleh

Tabouleh is one of my all-time favorite foods! When we still lived in Zurich, we would go from time to time with a group of friends to one of our favorite restaurants, Le Cèdre (always in groups, because mezze is more fun to eat in groups as you can share more different kinds!) – and they would serve…
