Marinated Citrus Ginger Tofu Soba Noodle Salad (vegan, gluten-free)

Print

This is my go-to vegetarian recipe. The secret here is how beautifully the citrus, ginger, sesame and Superfood Turmeric compliment the tofu, and roasting the mixture really brings out the flavors. All the flavors get so much more concentrated during the roasting process, making everything really pop when combined with the soba noodles and veggies.

Further Food Commentary:

Soba noodles are a great iron-rich pasta alternative, and, when made from 100% buckwheat are gluten free. Because buckwheat is technically a seed, not a grain, it not only contains all nine essential amino acids, but also the has the highest protein content of any grain outside of oats. Buckwheat is also rich in antioxidants, including rutin which has been found to have potent anti-clotting factors beneficial in preventing heart attacks and stroke.
