Soba is the Japanese name for buckwheat. It usually means thin noodles made from buckwheat flour, or a combination of buckwheat and wheat flours It has many more health benefits than regular noodles and can be found in most health food stores and organic sections of supermarkets. If you are using them, and you have cooked them and aren’t using them right away, rinse them again in warm water until they separate, otherwise they will be very sticky and one clump.
This recipe is easy, juicy and simple! You can prep the burgers the day before but be sure to cook them only right before you eat them for most juiciness!
Feel free to play around with this dish! Use any shredded cheese you like, put in thinly sliced tomatoes, peppers, olives…Have fun with it!
You can make this recipe with any version of chicken. I like to roast it whole or anything on the bone, because it is much juicier and creates a lot of liquid. You can serve this dish with rice or make a whole wheat pasta, add olive oil, salt and the delicious white wine sauce from the chicken!
This soup is so hearty and great if you are having a crowd on a cold day. I put regular dried black beans in and they were fully cooked within 2 hours.
