Soba Noodles with a Creamy Silken Tofu Herb Sauce

Silken tofu is an excellent base for vegan creamy dips, dressings and sauces. The addition of lots of herbs, lemon and chilli turns this into a fresh and light noodle or pasta sauce. Equally good hot or cold this is perfect for an al fresco supper on a summer’s evening. Add more, less or different herbs according to your taste.

Serves 4

  3. Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions, drain, return to the pan and add the tofu sauce.
  4. Garnish with a few coriander leaves and a slice of chilli to serve.
