The folks at Fortune Noodle Company are at it again with a new blogger recipe challenge! I was invited to participate with several food bloggers to #takethechallenge and create easy, gluten-free recipes using the Fortune Gluten Free noodles. The noodles are new to the market, shelf-stable, and can be found in the Asian dry grocery section at your local grocery store.
I’m using the Soba Buckwheat Noodles with Shoyu Flavor for my Mushroom Soba Buckwheat Ramen.
The recipe is Gluten Free and Vegetarian.
The noodles are deliciously light and pair perfectly with the earthiness of the mixed mushrooms. I used dried shiitake mushrooms to add more mushroom flavor to the broth then topped the noodles with pan-seared trumpet mushrooms and brown and white enoki. This bowl of warm and earthy mushroom noodle soup is a delight.
It's important that you follow the directions with this product, as the noodles are Gluten free and highly glutinous. The rice noodles need a good rinse under cool water after boiling and prior to being added back to the soup mixture. This extra step removes any stickiness which results in a thicker broth.
My Mushroom Soba Buckwheat Ramen is entered in the Soup category of this competition.
