It’s Meatless Monday everyone. Yep that’s right.. well I know you probably don’t care but I sure do. So here is what I am making tonight for this lovely Monday.

Asian Marinated Tofu with Soba Noodles

Sesame Marinade:

sesame oil= 3 TBS.

Soy Sauce= 1/4 cup

Balsamic or rice wine vinegar= 5 tsp.

sugar= 1 1/2 TBS

Red pepper flakes= 1/2 tsp.

scallions, chopped= 2 Tbsp.

Cilantro= 1 1/2 Tbsp.

1-2 packs of firm Tofu

For The Noodles

Soba noodles= 12 oz.

Cucumber, peeled, diced 1/4 cubes =1

Red Bell pepper, thinly sliced = 1

Green onions, thinly sliced= 1 bunch

Carrots, peeled, shredded = 3-4

sesame oil= 5 Tbsp.

Rice wine vinegar = 6 Tbsp.


For the Marinade-

1. In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients together and stir.


Slice the tofu into fingers or patties.

Place the tofu gently in a gallon zip log bag.

Pour the marinade in the bag and let it sit refrigerated for up to 6-8 hours before cooking.

Cooking the Tofu:

Heat a nonstick skillet with a little canola oil on medium-high.

Place the tofu in the skillet and let it cook on both sides until golden and crisp for about 10-12 minutes.

Soba Noodles:

Cook noodles in boiling water until al dente, about 6 minutes.

Rinse thoroughly under cold water and drain well.

In a bowl, add the noodles, cucumber, red bell pepper, green onions, carrots, sesame oil, and rice wine vinegar. Toss and serve.
