Tofu intrigues me as an alternative to animal protein.
For a long time, however, I couldn’t find a way to make it that would also intrigue my taste buds and that would notturn the tofu into a crumbly mess.
At last, the answer came to me in the shape of a noodle bowl. Because you can never go wrong with noodles.
This quick and easy recipe is perfect if, like me, you like your tofu firm and tasty.
Estimated time: 15 minutes
85 gr wholewheat noodles
100 gr extra firm plain tofu
Half a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil (8 ml)
A pinch of thyme
Follow the instructions on your noodle package.
I recommend Blue Dragon noodles because you can simply put the nests in a bowl, cover the noodles with boiling water, and wait about 10 minutes until they are soft. Alternatively, you may have to boil the noodles in a pot.
Coat a pan with the olive oil, add the thyme, and sprinkle a few droplets of water. Leave the pan on low heat until the water drops start sizzling.
In the meantime, chop your tofu into pieces. Make sure to use extra firm tofu for optimal results. A softer variety may crumble more easily.
Stir-fry the tofu for a minute or two, turning the pieces on both sides. Add the noodles and keep stirring for another minute, allowing the noodles to absorb the oil. The tofu is ready when the edges turn golden.
Finally, plate your creation, throw in some vegetables, and enjoy!
For best taste, eat this one while it’s still hot!
