  • Meanwhile, cook the soba noodles in a large saucepan of boiling water until al dente, about 4 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water until cooled. Shake out the excess water and set aside.

  • Stir the soy sauce into the broth; taste and add a little more if needed. Add the tofu and cabbage and simmer until the cabbage is crisp-tender, 6 to 8 minutes.

  • Stir in the peas and soba noodles and simmer until heated through. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with the sliced scallions.
