Soba Noodles Suba Style

I make this soba noodle salad quite often at home. It is one of my go-to meals when I am craving soba noodles. It is light, creamy, spicy and delicious. It is more of a summer dish but I make it all year round. It is packed with vegetables which are good for our bodies and has the tastiest peanut sauce I have made to date. I also include tofu in this recipe but you could leave it out if you are not a fan of tofu.

I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I have. As always please let me know what you think of this dish. If you like what you see on my blog, please subscribe to my blog and/or follow me on Instagram for some food porn.
