Cold Soba Noodle-Vegetable Salad with Tempeh

  • Prep Time 0:30
  • Cook Time 0:15
  • Estimated Cost $10.50

This light and crunchy salad stars soba noodles, made of buckwheat flour, with an earthy taste and silky texture and tempeh, a protein product made of fermented soy beans. The tempeh can be bitter if under-cooked, so be sure to leave it in the pan long enough to develop a golden-brown crust.

The juicy vegetables are naturally moist enough that this salad’s dressing needs no oil. Feel free to add toasted sesame seeds, almonds or peanuts.


  • 8 oz. dried soba noodles $1.50
  • 1 tbsp vegetable or canola oil Pantry
  • 8 oz. tempeh, cut into 1/2"-thick slices $3
  • salt to taste Pantry
  • 1 head Romaine lettuce, sliced $0.50
  • 2 carrots, shredded $0.50
  • 1/2 head red cabbage, cored and thinly sliced $0.50
  • 4 scallions, sliced $1 for a bunch
  • 1 tomato, cored and sliced into thin wedges $0.50
  • 4 tbsp Asian sweet chili sauce $2 for 10 oz.
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce Pantry
  • 1 handful cilantro leaves, chopped $1 for a bunch
