  • 5ml/0.2oz (1 tsp) sesame oil, for cooking
  • 100g/3.5oz snow peas (large handful)
  • 100g/3.5oz red capsicum/bell pepper (1/2 med capsicum)

  • 15ml/0.5oz (1 Tbsp) fresh lime juice

METHOD

  1. Cook the noodles in a pot of boiling water for 3 minutes. Remove from heat then rinse and drain them under cold water until noodles are cool and each strand is separated. To prevent them from sticking, place them in cold water until ready to use.
  2. Heat sesame oil in a pan on medium-high heat then cook the cubed tofu for about 10 minutes until lightly browned.
  3. In the meantime, steam the broccolini for 3-4 minutes. Cut the snow peas and capsicum and finely chop the ginger.
  4. Prepare the dressing by combining the soy sauce, lime juice, sesame oil and ginger. Mix until well combined.
  5. Drain the soba noodles and place in a bowl. Add the snow peas, capsicum, tofu, broccolini, drizzle with the dressing and top with sesame seeds.
