What to buy: Udon noodles are Japanese wheat noodles and soba noodles are Japanese buckwheat noodles. They can be found in gourmet grocery stores or in Asian markets. If you are having a hard time finding them, you can substitute whole-wheat linguine or spaghetti.

                                                                  • Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the noodles, stir to combine, and cook according to the package directions. Drain, rinse under cold water until the noodles are cool, and drain again; set aside.
                                                                  • Heat the oil in a medium frying pan over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the tofu and sear without moving until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Flip the tofu cubes and sear until the other side is golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the tofu to a large paper towel-lined plate and season with salt and pepper.
                                                                  • Reduce the heat to low and add the ginger, sesame oil, garlic, and red chile flakes to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant but not browned, about 30 seconds. Remove the pan from the heat, add the soy sauce and sugar, and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
                                                                  • Scrape the ginger mixture into a large heatproof bowl with a rubber spatula. Add the scallions and lemon juice and stir to combine. Add the reserved noodles, reserved tofu, bell pepper, and cucumber; toss to combine. Taste and season with more sesame oil as needed.
