The main limitation of this recipe is that tahini, being predominantly oil based, does not mix with mirin and soy sauce, but clumps and refuses to dissolve. I abandoned the sauce and just ate soba noodles with tofu and cucumber and scallions, drizzled with commercial soba soup mixed with wasabi.

  3. Add sauce and cilantro to noodles and toss to coat. Divide among 4 to 6 bowls. Garnish with diced cucumber and tofu cubes and serve hot.
