It is tofu week! 5 days of brand new tofu recipes. Let’s start off the week with this delicious recipe that has tofu, glass noodles and vegetables.
I am so excited about this week!
A couple of weeks ago I put up a poll on my instagram stories wondering if people were interested in seeing specials that last a week around 1-2 times a month featuring certain ingredients. After I got an overwhelming amount of “yes” votes I created a question box asking what ingredients you’d like to see featured. I got an overwhelming amount of tofu submissions so I thought that would be a great way to start off this new series!
I am not surprised by how many people wrote tofu as it can be quite an intimidating plant based protein option. When I first went vegan 6 years ago, I didn’t eat tofu right away. I really got into tofu six or so months into my vegan journey.
Now I am obsessed with tofu. I eat it all the time and enjoy finding new ways to cook with it.
I am really hoping that this next week/5 brand new recipes will bring some inspiration into your kitchen! Whether you love tofu, want to love tofu, or never tried it I hope that these recipes can be some help!
I love glass noodles. They are so delicious and easy to make. I also love the way that they look. I got mine from amazon. Click here for the link. You could use any noodles you want!
I recently had a delicious glass noodle dish from Spicy Moon in NYC and I knew I had to order some and make a recipe using them.
The tofu in this recipe is extremely basic but delicious. I just baked it with some soy sauce, maple syrup, etc. I love baking tofu because I find it gives some of the best change in texture.
Now the type of tofu that I like to use is normally vacuum sealed. If you get yours at Trader Joe’s its the High Protein tofu that isn’t resting in water. I like this because it’s much firmer and you really don’t have to press out so much water. If you cannot find tofu like this then extra/super firm tofu works fine too. You will need to press the water out for 15-20 minutes before marinating it.
I hope that you enjoy this recipe! If you make any of my recipes don’t forget to tag me in your posts/stories on IG @plantbasedjane
