The noodles are a Japanese pasta made from buckwheat that may help to lower blood pressure, cholesterol and reduce your risk of diabetes, In addition, they are rich in insoluble fiber.


Sesame seed and sesame oil contain the phytoestrogen lignan which is also known as Sesamol. This can help to prevent arteriosclerotic lesions. Additionally, it is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. This may also help to combat depression.


Coconut Oil is an additional powerhouse in this soba noodles recipe. It offers heart-healthy benefits such as restoring normal thyroid function and increasing good HDL cholesterol. This occurs due to the saturated fat in Coconut Oil called Lauric Acid.


Ginger, mustard, cumin and cilantro offer benefits such as antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties along with cleansing benefits.


The mix of vegetables in this #vegan and #glutenfree #recipe are a nutritional powerhouse. Click To Tweet


Kale offers anti-inflammatory benefits, detoxification and can help strengthen the immune system. Rainbow Chard offers Vitamin K, A, C, Magnesium, Iron, and Potassium. The Mustard Greens also come in strong on the vitamins and flavonoid antioxidants. The Sugar Snap Peas round out this meal nicely with Folate which also serves to improve heart health.


Dr. Hyman has put a great deal of time and effort into creating this heart-healthy cookbook and I, wholeheartedly, recommend it.

  1. Hi Elise,

    Beautiful sounding recipe! I enjoy cooking and have done since I was a little kid. I’ve also worked as a chef in some top restaurants and as a chef in a nursing home. Nutrition is a big part and just looking over this recipe and the information you’ve provided I can see everything is spot on! I look forward to making it 😉

    Thanks for a great post!

  2. Hello Elise,

    Great one over here 🙂

    This looks so delicious and healthy thing to in take while staying in this blogging business.

    One of the best things to have this winter, good for health and easy to digest. I have learned about so many noodles which
    can be made best by adding up some of the ingredients, but this one’s the coolest among all.

    Through your recipe book, I learned that some of the ingredients like rainbow chard leaves and mustard green leaves can be
    added up too.

    I am looking forward to get this on my plate this evening.

    Thanks for the healthy share.


  3. In all honesty, as someone who really is possibly addicted to chicken, I’ve never considered vegan cooking. But this looks so tasty I might just have to give it a go this week!

    Thanks so much!

  4. I used to be a chef in a Japanese restaurant and we made a lot of recipes using Soba noodles. This recipe sounds absolutely delicious!
