Beetroot Soba Noodles – a simple yet delicious recipe

Marinated beets served over soba noodles

Soba noodles are a type of Japanese noodle made from buckwheat flour. They are particularly popular because they have a delicious, creamy taste. They are very tasty and easy to prepare.

Soba noodles are a popular Asian dish that can be prepared in many different ways. One of the most popular variations is the marinated beetroot version. This dish is not only tasty, but also very healthy. The beetroot contains many important vitamins and nutrients that are good for our body. The soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour and are therefore gluten-free. So this dish is perfect for anyone who has switched to gluten-free food or wants to follow a gluten-free diet.

These delicious soba noodles with marinated beetroot are very healthy and simply taste delicious. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Boiled, baked or cooked beetroot from the supermarket

Cooking Beets: When cooking beets, be careful not to overcook them or they will become too soft. Beets are best when they still have some bite.

Clean the beetroot, do not peel or cut into the tuber. Wash off dirt residues under cold running water. Put the beets in a pot, fill with water and cook the vegetables for 30-40 minutes, depending on their size. If at all (we’ll season the marinade later), salt is only added towards the end, so that the salt cannot take away the wonderful red color.

Bake beets: You can also bake the beets for more flavor. This is also my preferred variant. Baking has the advantage that the color is perfectly preserved and the aroma is incomparably delicious.

This is how beetroot is baked in the oven. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Wash beetroot. If present, cut off the base of the leaves. Place the unpeeled beets in a fireproof bowl, fill with about 1-2 cm of water and cover with aluminum foil or a suitable lid and cook in the oven for one to one and a half hours.

Ready-cooked beetroot from the supermarket: Beetroot is also very cheap and you can buy it in many supermarkets. Beetroot is ideal for people who don’t have much time because it is prepared very quickly. The beetroot is already cooked, vacuum-packed or diced in a jar (but I wouldn’t use this variety for this dish, as they are often already seasoned). Otherwise, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the meal without having to spend long in the kitchen.
