Japanese Soba Noodle Bowl - Vegan and Gluten-Free!

I make this delicious vegan Soba noodle bowl in the form of mason jar salads to prep 4 portable healthy lunches at once!  Glass mason jars keep the ingredients super fresh, layers beautifully separated, and the contents ready to be dumped onto a plate for an instant noodle bowl deliciousness!

Japanese soba noodles pair perfectly with mushrooms, edamame, shredded carrots and shredded red cabbage, and the soy lime dressing makes it taste divine!  Mason jar setup keeps the dressing on the bottom, and the first layer is green edamame, followed by the grey soba noodles, then orange carrots, then brown mushrooms, and topped with purple cabbage – so colorful, so healthy, so yummy!

You don’t have to be a vegan to enjoy this salad – I’m not a vegan and I think this salad is amazing!  This Soba noodle bowl salad keeps you full for hours because it’s so high in protein.  Soba noodles themselves are high in protein, plus you get tons of protein from edamame and mushrooms – scrumptious!  Super healthy ingredients, so filling and no need for meat 🙂

If you are on a gluten-free diet, you’ll certainly appreciate the fact that soba noodles are gluten-free! Authentic Japanese soba noodles are made out of buckwheat which doesn’t contain gluten.  When buying Soba noodles in the US, read the labels as some brands contain the mix of wheat (with gluten) and buckwheat.  Choose the brand of Soba noodles that are 100% buckwheat, you can find them in Whole Foods or on Amazon.

Soba noodles are delicious cold, which makes them perfect for mason jar salads!  And combined with the soy-lime dressing, they are so addictive!  You are going to love this healthy noodle bowl salad – this vegan and gluten-free lunch is incredible!
