Preparation

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and cut tofu into 3/4-inch cubes.
  2. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, turning tofu after the first 15 minutes.
  3. Heat a pot of salted boiling water and cook soba noodles according to package instructions (mine took about 2 minutes to cook).
  4. Drain and rinse with warm water and transfer to a large bowl.
  5. In a skillet, heat sesame oil over medium heat. Add ginger and rice vinegar, and turn heat down to low medium. Cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add baked tofu, arranging so each piece of tofu lies flat on the pan.
  7. Add soy sauce, wasabi, and miso, and turn heat up to medium high. The sauce should bubble and/or thicken slightly.
  8. Toss all the tofu with the sauce for another 1-2 minutes.
  9. Pour tofu and sauce over soba noodles and toss to combine. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
