Soy-Lemon Dipping Sauce Recipe

Tamari soy sauce is similar to regular soy sauce but is slightly thicker and has a richer flavor. It is available at most grocery stores. Besides being the perfect condiment for the tofu, this sauce makes a nice addition to the soba noodles -- just drizzle a little bit on top. This recipe is also featured in "Martha Stewart's Dinner at Home."
