Ingredients

Soba noodles 100% buckwheat

180 g

Broccolini

2 bunch(es), trimmed, cut into long florets

Frozen broad beans

300 g, peeled

Sesame seeds

2 tbs

Firm tofu

300 g, cut into 12 slices

Peanut oil

2 tsp

Miso paste

1 tbs, (brown)

Reduced salt soy sauce

1 tbs

Mirin

1 tbs

Baby spinach leaves

75 g

Instructions

  1. Cook the noodles in a saucepan of boiling salted water following packet instructions or until just tender. Add the broccolini and broad beans for the last 2 minutes of cooking time. Drain. Refresh under cold water and drain.
  2. Place the sesame seeds on a plate. Press a piece of the tofu into the seeds to coat on both sides. Repeat with the remaining tofu. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the tofu for 1-2 minutes each side or until golden.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk the miso paste, soy and mirin in a bowl until combined. Add to the noodles, broccolini, broad beans and baby spinach leaves in a large bowl. Toss to combine. Serve topped with the tofu.

Notes

TIP: To peel broad beans, place in a bowl of warm water for 2-3 minutes, then peel away the grey skins.
