Tofu Bowl

INGREDIENTS

400g 100% buckwheat soba noodles (or regular for gluten containing noodles)
1 tbsp olive oil
400g extra firm tofu
2 tbsp olive oil
a few pinches of sea salt

DRESSING

6 tbsp almond butter, 100g
2 tsp white miso paste
1 lime juiced
¼ tsp sea salt
6 tbsp water

FOR GARNISH

30g flaked almonds
4 stalks spring onion, sliced
handful of mint leaves or thai basil
1 red chili (optional)

Serves 4

METHOD

  1. Make the almond dressing by combining all the ingredients except the water and whisk until even. Add the water one tablespoon at a time until consistency is like a creamy salad dressing.
  1. Bring a pot of water to the boil and cook the noodles for 3-4 minutes until al dente. Drain thoroughly and rinse under cold running water. Toss in 1 tbsp olive to prevent the noodles from sticking together.
  1. Cut the tofu into 1-2 cm cubes and cook on medium high heat with olive oil and 2 pinches of salt until golden brown, approximately 5 minutes. Add the noodles onto the pan for 30 seconds to reheat.
  1. Toss the warm noodles and tofu in almond dressing and garnish with almonds, spring onions, mint leaves and chili.
