Supermarket Discoveries

Somen-style Tofu

Check this out - somen noodle style tofu! How did I miss this last summer? Just drain, sprinkle with mentsuyu (noodle sauce) and chopped spring onions and you've got a tasty, healthy, high protein snack that's cool and refreshing.

I'm trying to use up some bottled sauce but if you had some extra time on your hands, you could try making Maki's mentsuyu recipe.

Oh wow that is cool! I've never heard of it either, I must have missed it in the stores last summer too. Did it taste like tofu or more like a noodle?

A bit like both. You could substitute them for noodles, but the texture isn't quite as firm.

I hope I can find them. Thanks!
