Tofu Stir-Fry with Noodles

Source: Everyday Food, May Early Summer 2005

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 package (14 ounces) extra-firm tofu, drained, patted dry, and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 red bell peppers, ribs and seeds removed, thinly sliced
  • 1 small head green cabbage (2 pounds), quartered, cored, and thinly sliced crosswise
  • 2 garlic cloves, slivered
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoon smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • Leftover spaghetti from Tomato-Garlic Spaghetti

Directions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat; add tofu and 1 teaspoon salt. Cook,
    tossing occasionally, until golden, 8 to 10 minutes; transfer to a plate.

  2. Heat remaining tablespoon oil in same skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell peppers, cabbage, garlic, pepper flakes, and 1/2 teaspoon salt;
    toss to coat. Cover; cook, tossing occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, make sauce: In a small bowl (or liquid measuring cup), stir together peanut butter and 1/4 cup hot water until smooth; stir in soy sauce and vinegar.

  4. Add tofu, leftover spaghetti, and sauce to skillet; simmer until heated through and saucy, 1 to 2 minutes.

Cook's Note

When cooked, extra-firm tofu holds its shape better than other types; drain well on paper towels before using.

    I would add some Chinese sesame oil and use seasoned rice vinegar rather than plain. Top with toasted sesame seeds and chopped green onions. Yum!

    The worst recipe. Without the sauce it was good, but with it, it was just unpalatable. Will never ever try again.

    I've tried a lot of recipes from this website, and this was by far one of my favorites. Very easy to make and cheap too.

    The peanut sauce was good except that the vinegar flavor was too strong. I would try it again with less than the listed 1/4 cup rice vinegar. I also did not have cabbage, but it was nice without it.
