Summer Citrus Mint Buckwheat Noodles with Tofu


Buckwheat noodles, also known as soba noodles, are traditionally used in Asian cuisine. They're a great gluten-free alternative to regular noodles, and they are surprisingly full of flavor themselves. This dish is a summery twist on Asian noodles, and I happen to love its sweet and savory flavors. 


  • 1 cup buckwheat noodles (cooked)
  • Handful of mint leaves
  • 1/2 grapefruit
  • 1 stalk green onion
  • 1/4 of an avocado
