Quick Dish: Tofu Soba Salad

Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

Soba Salad

Ingredients:
Cherry Tomatoes
Soba Noodles
Lettuce/Spinach
Tofu
Feta Cheese

Since, I have been incredibly busy at work this week/too lazy to really put in the effort to make anything, I prepped this meal for the week. The only thing you really need to prep are the noodles, which are super easy to make. Go to my past Soba Noodle Dish recipe HERE to see how to cook up the noodles.

While the noodles are cooking, i chop up all the extra ingredients that I want in my salad – you can put anything in there. I stuck with tofu, lettuce, and cherry tomatoes because I enjoy that mix with the soba noodles. When the noodles are cooled and ready, I topped my salad foundation with a pile of noodles, and finished it with a scoop of Thai Peanut Sauce, and a hint of salad dressing. I tend to use a Brianna’s Poppy Seed dressing or Feast from the East Sesame dressing (Costco). Mix that all together and you got yourself a delicious and healthy meal!

When you are on the go, what are your favorite quick and easy dishes to make?

Since, burrito bowls are my favorite item to order at Chipotle, I decided to give it a go and make my own version of the delicious meal. I do have to say that I was not well-prepared, but with that being said, it all tasted pretty great! But in the blogging world, it is really all about the photos…right? Hehe.

I started by cooking the brown rice, since it would take a bit longer than any of the other ingredients. While it was cooking, I chopped up my veggies and seasoned my fish with all sort of yummy seasonings. Feel free to use whatever seasonings you like, but I went with what I had in my cupboard and sounded good. As soon as the pan heated up, I placed down my pieces of fish to start cookin! WOOHOO!

While the fish was cooking, I made sure to put the black beans and corn on the stove, since those took the least amount of time to prepare. As soon as my fish was done cooking, I added in my veggies (alongside of the cooked fish), which allowed the veggies to simmer in the same seasoning base as my fish! Soon thereafter, the layering began – brown rice, black beans, corn, veggies, black olives, and fish! I topped off the dish with some green salsa, cilantro and lime, which gave the dish the perfect KICK! Yay to a successful recipe and meal! Your move Chipotle! (JK. Their bowl is obvi 10x’s better…that cilantro lime rice though)

enjoy :)
