Soba Noodle Bowl with Roasted Radishes

Soba Noodle Bowl with Roasted Radishes

I belong to a CSA, I love being able to support community agriculture and get fresh farm grown vegetables.  It’s really a win-win!

Sometimes, in my share I get an overabundance of certain vegetables that I just don’t know what to do with.  This year it was radishes.  While I like radishes in my salads and the hubs likes them raw with salt… there’s only so many radishes you can eat this way.

I took to google to find out different ways to prepare radish, and became intrigued at the prospect of roasting them.   Once roasted, the radishes have a more mellow flavor and are so good!

I found this recipe for Roasted Radishes with Soy Sauce over at Kalyn’s Kitchen and that got me thinking of bowl possibilities.

I paired the radishes with soba noodles, baked tofu, sauteed spinach, avocado, and a spicy tahini dressing. It was pure deliciousness!  I hope you enjoy.

Soba Noodle Bowl with Roasted Radishes

Ingredients

Soba noodles, cooked according to package directions

Package of baked Tofu (I use Trader Joe's Teryaki flavor), thinly sliced

Avocado, thinly sliced

Roasted Radishes

1-2 TBS vegetable stock

1 garlic clove, minced

1 tsp grated ginger

6 oz bag baby spinach

For The Dressing

4 TBS tahini

4 TBS water

1 tsp maple syrup

1/2 tsp tumeric

1/2 tsp siracha (or to taste, I used 1 tsp)

Instructions

Heat the vegetable stock in a skillet and add the garlic and ginger, cook until fragrant and softened. Add the spinach, tossing until wilted. Remove from heat.

Combine all dressing ingredients and whisk together until smooth.

Assemble bowl:

Add a couple handfuls of noodles for base of bowl. Arrange radish, avocado, tofu, and spinach on top of noodles. Drizzle with dressing.

    I’ve always grown radishes in my garden and have a ton of them since they grow so fast and easily. This looks like a great way to enjoy them!
