5 from 9 reviews

Soba noodles, sesame baked tofu, and zoodles make up this colorful noodle bowl. Stir in a spicy peanut sauce to make the flavors come alive. 


  • 1 zucchini squash
  • 3-ounce package of soba noodles
  • 1/2 cup carrot slices
  • 1/2 pound sesame baked tofu
  • 2 Tablespoons of spicy peanut sauce


  1. Prepare the sesame baked tofu and spicy peanut sauce ahead of time.
  2. Boil the soba noodles for 5 minutes.
  3. While the noodles are boiling, spiralize the zucchini and chop the baked tofu into small pieces.
  4. Drain the cooked noodles in a colander or sieve.
  5. Put the cooked noodles into the bowls. There’s no need to rinse soba noodles.
  6. Add half of the zoodles, half of the carrots, and half of the tofu into each bowl.
  7. Put about two tablespoons of spicy peanut sauce into each bowl, stir a little, and serve.


  • The cook time does not include the time to make the sesame baked tofu, which takes about an hour. The spicy peanut sauce takes about 15 – 20 minutes.
  • I recommend that you make the sesame baked tofu and spicy peanut sauce ahead of time. If you do that, this is a quick meal.
  • If you’re not a fan of tofu, try it with shrimp or chicken in place of tofu.
  • The nutrition label assumes that the spicy peanut sauce is made with regular soy sauce. Our peanut sauce is lower in sodium because it’s made with low-sodium soy sauce.
  • You don’t need to rinse soba noodles after cooking or add any oil to them.
  • If you refrigerate the peanut sauce, you might need to thin it before using it. Transfer about two tablespoons of sauce per serving into a small bowl and add a splash of hot water, mixing constantly.
