    Tofu with Greens & Noodles

    posted in Fitness Food, Main Dishes |


    Lisa made this excellent vegetarian stir-fry tonight, based on a recipe in the always wonderful Fitness Food. Tofu is cubed and marinated in a mix of sauces and spices, and then quickly stir-fried with a plethora of veggies — we altered the recipe to suit what we had on hand — and thin egg noodles. This one will definitely make it into the regular rotation.

    Chris says:

    Ooooh, now this is a good stir-fry!

    Lisa says:

    Of course it’s good, it’s from Fitness Food — I love that book.

    Chris says:

    This might be one of my favorites — even though it’s meat-free…

    Lisa says:

    I obviously feel the same way — I inhaled!

    Chris says:

    You might want to retract that if you ever want to run for President.

    Lisa says:

    Totally worth it. I’ll even admit to “doing shrooms”, as long as people realize it’s in the context of this dinner. Tofu with Greens & Noodles in ’08!

    Gets my vote!

    Tofu with Greens & Noodles
    —————————
    Marinade
    3 tbsp spicy oyster sauce
    3 tbsp hoisin sauce
    2 tbsp soy sauce
    1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
    3 tsp grated ginger
    3 cloves garlic, crushed

    Stir Fry
    10 oz firm tofu, drained and cubed
    10 oz dried thin egg noodles
    1 tsp canola oil
    2 shallots, thinly sliced
    1 leek, thinly sliced
    2 stalks celery, thinly sliced
    1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
    4 oz green beans, trimmed
    4 oz mushrooms, sliced
    1 bunch broccolini, trimmed

    cilantro leaves to garnish

    Combine the marinade ingredients in a non-metallic bowl, add the tofu and gently stir through. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
    Cook the noodles according to the package and set aside.
    Heat the oil in a large wok. Add the shallots, red pepper, and leeks and stir-fry for 2 minutes, or until lightly softened. Add the rest of the vegetables and broth. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the vegetables are just tender, stirring occasionally.
    Add the tofu with the marinade and the noodles. Gently combine and stir until heated through. Garnish with the cilantro and serve.
