We're rounding out the Three Musketeers of the My Hero Academia anime with Shoto Todoroki! His favorite dish (and a favorite among fans) is cold soba (aka buckwheat) noodles. Today, we'll be making some of our own with some edamame and tofu for added protein.
This is actually one of my favorite dishes, too - soba has this really nice, subtle flavor that's almost nutty. So with the sauce, you should dip it instead of coat it. That way, you can get just enough sauce to keep the noodles from drying out but so you can still enjoy the natural flavor of the noodles.
Also, depending on the mentsuyu sauce you use, this dish can be made entirely vegan or vegetarian. You can get a variety that doesn't use bonito flakes, or you can just use soy sauce instead if you can't find any.
