I Love summer. Picnics and pot luck get togethers with friends, Long drives with family and splash parks with kids, so much fun. Here I am sharing an exciting healthy and easy summer salad recipe with you: Cold Tofu Noodle Salad, hope you like it.
1 Pack of Somen Noodles (Thin Wheat noodles, you can use any kind of noodles you like)
350 gms of Firm Tofu
(Cut Tofu into cubes and Marinade it with 1 tbsp Soy Sauce and 1 tbsp Lemon Juice)
Veggies of your choice but here’s what works well:
1/2 cup matchstix carrots (Or thinly sliced )
Small thinly sliced piece of Red Pepper (about 1/2 to 1/4 cup)
1/2 cup Green Onion
1/2 tsp Red Chilli flakes
1 tbsp grated ginger
3 tbsp Vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
Few drops of Fish sauce
(If you require, you can add salt and pepper, although I find that salt content in Soy sauce is good enough for me)
Garnish with 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Peanuts (optional- some raisins)
– Cook Noddles per package instructions. Run them in cold water and then put them in a large bowl.
– Add in marinated tofu. I like to marinade tofu atleast overnight for best taste/flavour but if you are short of time, half an hr is good too)
– Add in all the veggies and dressing. ( For dressing, mix grated ginger, red chilli flakes, vinegar, soy sauce and few drops of fish sauce)
– Mix well and garnish with peanuts. Let it chill and then serve.
