Soba Noodle Salad


Sometimes the biggest decision of the day can be ‘what will I have for lunch?’ Usually this question is asked at 7:30 in the morning, before work or university and your choice could potentially make or break your day.

You could buy lunch, but it’s expensive, and you’re poor. You could make food, but it’s a lot of effort, and you’re poor. You could get fast food, but people will judge you, and let’s face it, it can rack up a bill and you’re pretty fucking poor.

Soba noodles are an ingredient predominantly used in Japanese cooking. They’re easy to prepare, cheap and tasty, plus you can use them in a variety of ways. Salads are like cheerleaders: pretty to look at, but relatively unsatisfying. No offense if you’re a cheerleader, you could be part of the minority; attractive and underappreciated! Soba noodle salad is also part of that minority, plus it’s easy and cheap and you could probably make it half asleep. It’s a meal that ticks all boxes.
