This spicy stir-fry dish is packed with veggies; covering them while cooking helps trap the steam so they cook more quickly. We used almond butter instead of peanut, for a twist.

Recipe Summary



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cook soba noodles in a large pot of salted water until al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain, and then rinse with cold water; set aside.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add tofu and season with salt. Cook, tossing occasionally, until golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a plate; set aside.

  • Heat remaining tablespoon oil in same skillet over medium-high. Add bell peppers, broccoli, bok choy, garlic, and red pepper flakes; season with salt. Cover (pan will be very full) and cook, tossing occasionally until vegetables are crisp-tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, make sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together almond butter and 2 tablespoons water, then whisk in vinegar and soy sauce. Add reserved noodles, tofu, and sauce to pan with vegetables. Cook, tossing until noodles are heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.
