Do you know your noodles? They come in so many shapes and sizes. Next time you go to the supermarket, try to see how many kinds you can find!
Soba – thin and made from buckwheat flour. Deep in color and flavor, it has extra protein and tastes great hot or cold.
Udon – thick and chewy, these are popular in soup and so satisfying to slurp!
Somen – these thin white noodles are springy in texture and often served cold.
Ramen – medium-thick and wavy. What is traditionally used in a ramen soup.
Rice – unlike the others, these are made from, you guessed it, rice! Making them a great gluten-free alternative.
