Matcha soba bowl


vegan matcha soba bowl with tofu, veggies and mentsuyu style dipping sauce

As usual, I want to share with you guys an easy yet yummy bowl recipe. 

I don't know why but, those time, I really don't want to spend too many hours (not to say minutes) in my kitchen. So, this kind of dish helps me a lot. Are you in the same case?

This time, let's do it with noodles! I choose matcha flavored soba noodles : it's the first time I taste it and it's really good. Matcha flavor is subtile and I like the natural green color it gives to the noodles.

This matcha soba bowl is almost healthy, full of proteins, low fat and high in calcium! Don't hesitate to add some fresh raw veggies to make it healthier!





Ingredients:

- 1 portion of cooked, rinsed and drained matcha soba
- 1/2 block firm tofu
- 4 mushrooms
- 2 leaves of kale
- 2tbs soy sauce
- 1tbs sweet soy sauce
- 1/2ts garlic powder
- 1/2ts onion powder

Homemade turnip pickles:
- 1 turnip
- 2tbs soy sauce
- zest of 1/4 lemon (or more if you want)
- chili flakes
- vinegar

Mentsuyu-ponzu style dipping sauce:
- 2tbs soy sauce
- 1ts lime juice
- 1ts lemon juice
- 1ts dried cive
- some water



Instructions:

Peel, cut and place the turnip into a jar. Add lemon zest, chili flakes and soy sauce. Then, cover completely with vinegar (rice vinegar is the best if you have some in your pantry). Put the lid on and store it in fridge for at least 24 hours.

Preheat the oven at 200°C.

Into a bowl, mix 2tbs of soy sauce, 1tbs of sweet soy sauce, 1/2ts of garlic powder and 1/2ts of onion powder. Combine well.

Press the tofu to get rid of extra liquid and cut it into the shape you desire. Carve a cross in the center of each mushroom. Drop tofu and mushrooms into the sauce you've just made (they have to be well coated).
Bake them in the oven, along with the kale, for about 10 minutes (or less).

Combine all the ingredients for the "mentsuyu-ponzu" style dipping sauce. Use water to adjust the consistency.

Place everything into your bowl, garnish with some sesame seeds and dried (or fresh, if you have) cives and enjoy this oishi matcha soba bowl!
