Turkey Soba Noodle Soup

Turkey Soba Noodle Soup

Freeze the extra Turkey Stock for soups. 100% buckwheat soba noodles are gluten-free; however regular soba noodles are not, so be sure to read the ingredients label if you are on a strict gluten-free diet. Although I used turkey in this recipe, leftover roast or poached chicken would be just as good.
