Soba Noodle Soup is speedy comfort food that can soothe the soul.

Oh, haiyyy. Just gimme a minute to slurp up the last of my soba noodle soup.  

Soba Noodle Soup, or Toshikoshi Soba, symbolizes good luck in the new year and is traditionally eaten by the Japanese on the 31st of December. Thus the reason for sharing my simple recipe for this flavorful soup only days away from the new year.

I’m so superstitious that I’ll do almost anything I’m called to do so long as it’s supposed to bring me good luck. And when I say good luck, I actually mean, great health, happy days, and sleepFULL nights.

A fat bank account is also welcome…

Good Luck charm aside, this soup proves that nothing warms the soul better than a homemade healthy dinner infused with Asian flavors.

While this may not be an authentic Japanese recipe for Toshikoshi Soba – that’s why I call it simple and easy – the taste of it comes pretty darn close. The hot broth infused with ginger, garlic and soy sauce is reason enough to bring this noodle soup to a New Year’s Eve dinner table near you!

  1. Amazing recipe! I’m already cooking it a second time, but using low sodium beef broth instead of vegetable just for kicks.

  2. The proper Asian way of cooking soba is to wash then soak the noodles for about 10minutes until they bend; then boil for about 5-8 minutes. While noodles are boiling, ready your colander and have a bowl full of cold water. After noodles are fully cooked, not al dente, drain in colander and then plunge into the waiting cold water. Now, swish the noodles and rub aggressively to get rid of excess starch; which prevents gummy, yucky noodles. Drain and let sit for a minute. You can now add them to bowl, place veggies attractively, and ladle on the broth.

  3. Yum!! Word of caution: I boiled my soba separately and added into individual serving bowls, pouring hot broth on top. Whenever I boil soba right in a broth it gets starchy, the noodles soggy, and leftovers don’t keep well. I also added crispy tofu which added a lovely crunch and added protein.
