This nourishing bowl of soba noodles with spicy miso prawns and broccoli is fresh, flavourful and filling. Soba noodles are either made entirely from buckwheat flour, which is gluten free, or from a combination of buckwheat and regular wheat flour. They are popular in Japanese dishes and often served in a hot broth. We've topped our soba noodles with spicy pan fried prawns and broccoli, and made a quick pickle, which is so easy to do but makes this soba noodle bowl a bit special. It's all tied together with a savoury miso dressing, with a hint of zesty lime and warming toasted sesame.
