Soy & Sesame Soba Noodles

This Sesame Soba Noodles recipe makes a simple Asian side dish or an easy main meal that’s lower in salt and on the table in no time.


  1. Mix all marinade ingredients together into a large bowl
  2. Cut 1 block of firm tofu into cubes and place into the marinade mixture and leave for a few hours in the fridge.
  3. Once tofu has marinated, it will take on a brown colour from the soy sauce plus lock in a deep soy sauce flavour. Put the tofu into a fry pan and fry up until golden and crispy.
  4. Cook soba noodles and steam your chosen veg (Erin used snow peas and broccolini)
  5. Place all ingredients into a large saucepan or wok and cover with leftover marinade from the tofu. If the tofu has absorbed most of the marinade, we suggest making a double batch so there’s plenty of marinade left to cover the whole dish when serving.
