Ingredients

  • 1 16 oz. package extra firm organic tofu
  • 2 tsp sesame oil for cooking tofu
  • 1 tsp dark soy sauce for cooking tofu
  • 2 to 3 servings noodles
  • 2 medium carrots cut very thinly
  • 1/3 cup scallions
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro or parsley
  • sesame seeds for serving
  • chili garlic sauce or sambal oelek for serving (optional)

Sauce Ingredients

  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder and ground ginger
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1.5 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp chili garlic sauce or sambal oelek
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tsp sesame oil

Instructions

  • Cook your noodles according to package directions and rinse (be sure to not overcook them). Drizzle in a touch of sesame oil and gently toss (optional).
  • Meanwhile, drain the tofu very well, and crumble it into a large pan. The smaller the crumbles, the firmer / crisper they will get during cooking. Add a bit of oil and cook for 20 min on medium heat, stirring periodically.
  • Towards the end of cooking, add around a tsp of dark soy sauce (or sub regular soy sauce).
  • While tofu and noodles cook, thinly slice the carrots. Add them to the tofu pan when tofu is done. Continue to cook for a couple min while you whisk up the sauce.
  • Add sauce to the pan, cook until it starts to thicken. While sauce is thickening, chop the scallions and herbs.
  • Now add noodles to pan, toss, serve and top with scallions and herbs.
