Soba noodles are a low-GI japanese-style noodle made from a mixture of buckwheat and wheat, making them high in dietary fibre and protein. The sodium content is high, however, this is reduced significantly after cooking. Asparagus spears vary in thickness; if the ends are really thick, peel them from the bottom up to within 5cm (2 inches) of the tips.
