otsu tofu and soba noodle salad


this makes a wonderful, light meal with a japanese influence! i found it in heidi swanson's terrific cookbook, super natural cooking. if the vegetables are pre-chopped it goes together quickly. don't worry about the long ingredient list. i'd recommend putting salt and pepper on the tofu as it's cooking. we loved this dish!
