Spicy Soba Noodles

4.0
6 ratings
Classic Asian flavors come together to create an easy dish with tofu and spicy soba noodles. If you've never had buckwheat soba, it's a really great noodle for chilled salads (especially if you're going with Asian flavors). It holds its firmness really well, and noodles do a good job of taking on the perfect coating of sauce without feeling slippery. As a warning, this recipe is hot hot hot. You can leave out the jalapeno and/or cut back on the chili sauce.
