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 several times until noodles are cool and each strand is separated. To prevent them from sticking, place them in cold water until ready to use.
  2. Prepare all veggies and cube the tofu and avocado.
  3. Heat sesame oil in a pan on medium-high heat then cook the cubed tofu for about 10 minutes until lightly browned.
  4. In the same pan, add the green beans, carrot, broccolini and stir-fry for a couple of minutes until broccolini has wilted. Remove from heat.
  5. For the dressing, combine the teriyaki sauce, lemon juice and sesame oil. Mix well.
  6. Drain the soba noodles and place in a bowl. Add the veggies, avocado and tofu. Add the dressing and mix well until everything is evenly coated. Top with sesame seeds, fresh coriander and serve.
