Ingredients

  • 1 (two-inch piece) fresh ginger, peeled and sliced into very thin strips
  • 1 serrano or jalapeno chile, seeded and sliced into very thin strips
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (about 3 limes)
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 package (14 ounces) extra-firm tofu, cut into 3/4-inch cubes and patted dry
  • 1 package (about 8 ounces) soba noodles
  • 4 ounces snow peas, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 English cucumber, peeled, halved crosswise, then sliced lengthwise into thin strips
  • 1/4 bunch chives, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted, peeled, and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, bring ginger, chile, sugar, and 1/3 cup water to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cook until ginger and chile are soft, about 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer ginger and chile to a bowl; set aside. Reserve syrup.

  2. Make dressing: In a shallow bowl, whisk together lime juice, soy sauce, and 2 teaspoons reserved syrup. Add tofu, and toss to coat. Set aside.

  3. In a pot of boiling water, cook the noodles according to package instructions. Drain; transfer to a large bowl. Add peas; drizzle with oil and 1 tablespoon dressing. Toss to coat; let cool.

  4. To serve, add cucumber and chives to bowl along with the tofu and dressing; toss to combine. Divide among plates; top with avocado and reserved ginger and chile. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

    I would like the nutritional info for all of the recipes. Please consider adding for all of us calorie counters.

    I agree 100%, knorton4. I would expect at least that from a magazine of this caliber!
