Soba Noodle Bowl w/ Tahini Sauce

I wish I had more time to try out new recipes! Whenever I cook, it’s the same old simple foods that are easy to throw together. I cook every meal myself. That means breakfast, lunch & dinner so I need to go for quick, simple recipes. The other day, I told myself I WILL try a new recipe. So I spent an extra 20 minutes to cook up something I’ve been wanting to try. A soba noodle bowl!

I have a bunch of recipes bookmarked on my computer that I still really want to make. I have many sticky notes in pages of my Purely Elizabeth recipe book that are waiting on me. They all sound so good but I don’t have time to make new recipes too often!

Recipe Yields: 1 serving (1 bowl)

Ingredients:

  • 1 bundle soba noodles (1/2 cup when cooked)
  • 1/4 cup firm tofu
  • 3 oz Lean Chicken breast

I love tahini dressing in my salads so I wanted to make a dish suitable for tahini. I looked up some simple clean recipes & found several soba noodle recipes. I just got some ideas from several recipes & created my own. I didn’t want soup but a soba noodle salad-like dish.

This was just so delicious and simple to make! The dressing recipe will last you several bowls 🙂

I love throwing bowls together like this because I get to eat a variety of grains, veggies & protein. It’s a nutritious way of getting in more macronutrients (carbohydrates, lean protein, healthy fats) and micronutrients (vitamins & minerals) our body needs.

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Throw your broccoli, bell peppers, tofu & chicken breast into your olive oil, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic powder & herb spice mix & coat well.
  3. Paint your baking tray with a bit of olive oil.
  4. When your oven is preheated, spread out veggies & protein on the baking tray & baked for 15-20 minutes until brown and crispy. Check halfway to flip to the other side.
  5. While the veggies & protein are roasting, boil water in a small pot.
  6. When the water boils, put in your bundle of soba noodles and boil for 6-7 minutes.
  7. While waiting, whisk together your tahini sauce in a little jar. Leave it in your fridge to keep cold.
  8. When noodles are done, drain with a strainer w/ cold water to prevent it from sticking together.
  9. When veggies are done & noodles are done – arrange it however you want on your plate, add the avocado & top with optional sesame seeds.
  10. Put some tahini sauce on top & enjoy this easy delicious meal!

This was so delicious when I mixed everything together with the sauce! Roasting veggies is the way to go 🙂

The tahini sauce will last you several servings so you may leave it in your fridge. You can also use this sauce on top of your salads, rice bowls or macrobiotic bowls. It’s versatile!

  1. LOVE the sound of the tahini sauce – I have half a jar of tahini sitting at home right now waiting to be used, and I’ve been weirdly craving soba noodles.. perfect timing!

  2. I definitely need to try to add this dish to my meal prep! I just started making my lunches big batch instead of every night and it’s so much easier!
