And just like that the memorial day weekend is done and dusted! Time sure flies! What did you guys do over the weekend? Went anywhere? Fire up the grill?

We stayed home and did nothing much. We have been travelling a lot recently and last few weeks were quite busy. So for the long weekend, we just wanted to relax and do nothing.

But yeah we did clean our backyard and also cleaned up our grill. Even though it wasn’t the perfect grill weather here but it wasn’t bad either. So we had some grilled corn, sweet potatoes and veggie burgers! It was also so good but my favorite? Grilled mangoes!

You guys, have you tried grilled mangoes? They are so good! Sarvesh just wanted to try grilling them (well mangoes you know!) but to my surprise they turned out so well. You guys should give it a try!

Other than the grilling, I also made these Vegan Soba Noodles Stir Fry with Curried Tofu over the weekend. Do you guys like soba noodles? I was always hesitant to try them but now I love them. They are so delicious especially when stir fried with lots of veggies in a spicy ginger sauce like in this recipe!

Soba noodles are made from buckwheat and are thus gluten-free. These thin noodles are very popular in Japan but now they have gained popularity all over.

To change things up, I added some curry powder, salt and pepper to my tofu and pan fried it before adding it to the noodles. It made all the difference and the flavors were amazing this way!
