Soba Salad with Miso Dressing

The cooking club went creative this month. Instead of the usual food theme, we had to bring a dish must contain ingredients starting with three consecutive letters of the alphabet. This is a tough challenge. Took me a while to decide on a RST : R for Red Pepper, S - Soba Noodle, T-Tofu. This was inspired by the leftover soba noodle sitting in the fridge. Instead of the spicy peanut dressing which I made previously, I decided to concort my own miso dressing.

1 package soba noodles
1 packet of Extra Firm Tofu
2 cups of sugar snaps
2 bell peppers - finely sliced

1/2 tablespoon miso paste ( Use oyster sauce if you do not like miso)
1/4 cup soya sauce
1/2 teaspoon of grated ginger ( more if you like it to be gingerly.....I prefer mine with more)
1/2 cup hotwater ( less if you like it thicker)

1. Cut the tofu into 1-inch cube. Marinate with 2 tablespoon of soya sauce
2. Bring a large pot to boil. Boil the soba according to package instruction
3. Remove and run under cold water
4. Boil the sugar snap( or any other vegetables)

1. Combine the ingredient and whisk till smooth
2. Add water to achieve the consistency you prefer

Gently toss the noodles and the vegetables with the dressing. Chill for one hour prior to serving. ( You can also serve this at room temperature)
