Ginger Teriyaki Tofu

Excuse the bad BB photo quality, my awesome camera wasn't charged šŸ˜¦

There are some people who think ‘tofu equals ew’. They could not be more wrong. It is such a versatile little food, you can do anything with it! My mom substitutes it for ricotta cheese in lasagne (note to self: make that sometime soon and post the recipe!), but I don’t go through such great lengths to adapt it into different cultural cuisines. Here is a recipe for tofu in its Asian form – sauteed in Teriyaki sauce on top of rice noodles, with a side of garlic spinach.

Step 1) Place rice noodles (also calledĀ vermicelli) into a pot of boiling water. Cooking time stated on package.

Step 2) Sautee chopped garlic and spinach, cover to keep warm.

Step 3) Spray another pan with PAM non-stick spray, lay down tofu strips.

Step 4) Before turning over, pour some Teriyaki sauce on the tofu. Let simmer for 1 – 2 minutes and flip over. Pour on more Teriyaki.

Step 5) Rinse cooked rice noodles in cold water and toss with tofu over high heat for 30 seconds.

Step 6) Place on plate, add spinach on side and shredded carrot on top.
