Know Your Japanese Noodles

Asian noodles come in all shapes and sizes. Try using any of these in your “Oodles of Noodles” soup. Just follow the package directions for exact cooking times.

  • Soba Noodles (buckwheat flour)
  • Udon (popular in soup)
  • Somen (often served cold)

These are wheat-based Japanese noodles. For Gluten-free, try one of the many available rice noodles. Here’s a little about two others:

  • Cellophane noodles, also known as glass noodles, are called so because they become translucent when cooked. These noodles are made from mung bean, yam, or potato starches, which means they are naturally gluten-free; they are also quite versatile, and are used in a variety of East Asian cuisines
  • Rice Noodles, The noodle used in Vietnamese pho, rice noodles are also common in Chinese, Thai, and Malaysian cooking. Made from rice flour and water, these noodles are naturally gluten-free—you can find them either fresh or dried in Asian markets – Blue Apron Blog
