On Thursday (?) we ordered Chinese food. Jon got General Tso’s Tofu and I got steamed veggies and tofu (yes, I am one of those). Of course we didn’t finish it all, so we had a bunch of left overs. Today we reused them- we stir fried the steamed veggies and tofu medley with garlic, ginger, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and sesame oil to add some flavour and texture, and threw themin some broth composed of veg broth, garlic, fresh chives, soy sauce, and sesame oil. If I had srirarcha sauce.. I would. Then we added in some soba noodles and called it a day. Jon pan fried his General Tso’s tofu, and it heated up very nicely! Oh yeh, and I had a fried egg on top.
Soba Noodles with Veg and Tofu
Leftovers: Broccoli, sugar snap peas, tofu- whatever veggies you want to use up, kale and mushrooms and baby corn would work nicely.
Vegetable Broth- 3 cups
1 Tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Fresh Ginger, grated and peeled
1 Garlic Clove
Sautee left over veggies and tofu in Sesame Oil, add garlic and ginger, and cook until flavours are absorbed (Note: If you are using tofu that has already been coated in sauce and fried, set this aside and cook on its own in a pan over high heat), set aside. Cook soba noodles, drain, and set aside. Cook broth- throw in veg broth, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and chives. Cook for about 10 mins so flavours meld together. Add in tofu, veggies, and noodles. Fry an egg in some oil, and baste with veg broth, cover and cook a few minutes. Arrange noodles and veg in a bowl, top with egg, and garnish with chives.
