Vegetable Tofu with Sesame Soba Noodles

I made this the day before Thanksgiving. It was easy, quick and of course healthy and satisfying.

Tofu with Sesame Soba Noodles


1 package soba noodles
1 block tofu, cubed
3 tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 cup flour- for frying- use any kind you have available
4 tbsp. sesame seeds (black or white)
2 tbsp. sesame oil
1/8 cup nutritional yeast (optional but I love the flavor it adds to the tofu)
3 cups broccoli, raw or if frozen, thawed
1 1/2 cups chopped  raw carrot
1 cup frozen edamame, thawed

Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and toss hot noodles with sesame oil, 1 tbsp. soy sauce, and sesame seeds. While noodles are cooking, steam or heat in a large skillet the broccoli, carrots, and edamame.  Toss the cubed tofu with the flour  until well coated. Fry the cubes in a cast-iron pan or skillet sprayed with oil. Fry until golden brown on all sides, about 5 minutes.  Toss the fried tofu with nutritional yeast and 2 tbsp soy sauce.

Combine the noodles, vegetables and tofu. Add more soy sauce if you’d like to taste.
