Szechuan Tofu With Soba Noodles Recipe

Szechuan Tofu With Soba Noodles Recipe


  • 300 grams silken-firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup plain flour
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot powder (or cornflour)
  • 1 heaped tbsp szechuan peppercorns
  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil
  • 3 spring onions
  • Handful coriander leaves
  • 200 grams soba noodles
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • Sesame oil, to serve


  1. Prep the veges by finely slicing the spring onions and roughly chopping the coriander. Dry toast the sesame seeds in a pan over a medium heat, tossing continually and removing from the heat once the seeds start to brown. Set aside.
  2. Grind the szechuan peppercorns, using a mortar and pestle or a spice grinder.
  3. Combine the flour, arrowroot powder, and ground szechuan pepper in a wide shallow bowl. Cut the tofu into cubes (about the size of a small dice) and toss in the flour mixture until coated on all sides. Heat the sunflower oil in a shallow pan over a medium-high heat. Once the oil is nice add the tofu cubes to the pan in a single layer. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side, or until the cubes are golden. Remove from heat and toss together in a bowl with the spring onion and coriander.
  4. While the tofu is frying, boil a pot of water and cook soba noodles according to instructions 
  5. When everything is ready, drain the noodles and divide between two bowls, drizzling a splash of sesame oil over the noodles. Top the noodles with the tofu mixture and sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds over the whole lot. Eat immediately.
