Ingredients for salad:

  • 170g (6oz) soba noodles

  • 280g (10oz) extra-firm tofu (block cut into 5 slices)

  • 100g (3.5oz) mangetout

  • 125g (0.9oz) carrots cut julienne

  • 1 small red pepper cut julienne

  • 30g (1oz) spring onion thinly sliced

  • 3 tbsp sweet soy sauce (use less if using regular soy sauce)

  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 1 tsp toasted sesame for garnish

Ingredients for dressing:

  • 30g (1oz) miso paste

  • 10g (0.33oz) peanut butter (use nut-free peanut butter or tahini instead)

  • 40g (1.40z) sweet chilli sauce

  • 1/2 lime juice

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil


1. To begin with, boil the noodles as instructed on the packet, make sure you watch it closely as they like to stick together and boil over. When ready blanch in cold water, drain and leave covered on the side.

2. Slice tofu block vertically into five parts. Heat the oil in the frying pan over high heat and sear the tofu on each side until golden brown. Reduce the heat and add soy sauce to coat the tofu on each side, be careful not to burn it, you want gentle caramelisation.

When ready, place the tofu aside and once it cools down cut into 1cm (0.4inches) cubes.

3. Stir-fry mangetout on a hot frying pan with 1 tbsp of vegetable oil for 90 seconds and place aside to cool down.

4. For the dressing whisk all the ingredients together or blend.

5. Toss everything together and garnish with toasted sesame seeds ready to serve, enjoy!
