If you’ve been around these parts for any length of time then you’d know colourful salads are up there on my favourite food list, and this is no exception! Not only is it colourful, it’s also full of delicious flavours (and a bit of a spice kick!) from the tofu marinade, all supported by tasty, hearty soba noodles. What more could you want from a salad!?
When I’m trying to decide what to make for my work lunches there are a few criteria that the food has to meet. It needs to be easily transportable, not go bad/strange after a couple of days and be healthy and filling. I realised I hadn’t done anything Japanese inspired for lunch for a while, so decided to have a play with soba noodles as they are hearty and delicious and make for a great hot or cold dish. This turned out really tasty – even if the purple carrots stained the noodles!
