Ginger Soba Noodles with Lentil Salad

A hint of the Orient with this lovely, simple dish! Soba noodles are made from all buckwheat or a mixture of buckwheat and wheat. Widely eaten in Japan, they are sold in good health food shops or good supermarkets. If you can't find them, use ordinary wholemeal noodles, such as Blue Dragon, (egg-free).
For a gluten-free option, use 100% buckwheat or rice noodles - check the labels carefully. These are available from large supermarkets, Oriental stores or health food shops.
