Buckwheat Noodles and Mushrooms

Buckwheat Noodles are also known as soba noodles.  Buckwheat noodles are fat- and cholesterol-free and are a good source of nutrients like manganese and thiamine. Buckwheat is second only to oats as a source of protein.  Since buckwheat does not contain gluten, buckwheat noodles are a good choice for people following a gluten-free diet.
