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.
I was inspired to make this salad because I saw purple sprouts in the market and then found mini mozzarella balls! But of course you can use any sprouts, regular fresh mozzarella and large tomatoes (sliced).
These muffins are addictive, moist and perfect in every way. If you want them to be more dessert-y add the chocolate chips. If you want them to be more breakfast-y then leave out the chocolate.
Feel free to swap and switch with any flavors and toppings you would like! The important thing to learn here is that you can dress up your sunny side up eggs and that grilling the bread makes all the difference!
These really take under 10 minutes to make and if you have pretty little cupcake papers, use them! I love these little muffin tins because there is no clean up and they look divine! If you would rather make a large quiche, use the standard round pan or tin and this recipe might even make 2 of them!
