    Bring 5 cups of water to boil and cook soba noodles according to package instruction, or until tender. Drain noodles and run under filtered water to stop cooking, then set aside.
    In separate pot, steam or boil lightly carrots, snow pea, and tofu for 2 minutes. Combine noodles with vegetables and tofu in a large bowl. Add oil, soy sauce, and chives or green onion. Toss. Pepper to taste. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top. A delicious low calorie recipe.


    Handful of soba (buckwheat) noodles
    1/2 firm tofu package, cube
    1 cup snow peas, whole
    1 carrot large, sliced
    1 handful fresh chives or 1 green onion stalk, chopped
    2-3 tablespoon oil
    2 tablespoon soy sauce
    black pepper
    sesame seeds

      This is a great recipe that takes time to prepare (washing and cutting veggies), but the result is totally worthwhile. Very delicious. Very filling and nutritious and totally satisfying. My family loves it.

      Fabulous! I couldn't find anything called Soba noodles at Whole Foods, but I did see buckwheat pasta; I hope that's the same thing. I had never bought sesame seeds before and I want to tell others to get the unhulled as there will be more minerals that the hulled seeds.
