Vegetarian Chow Mein
I really need to get back to regularly posting healthy meals on this blog, well this is a start. Here is a yummy, healthy, vegetarian meal that is very easy to make and will please even the pickiest of eaters.
1 package of firm tofu, cubed
1 large package of Asian ramen noodles (cooked according to package)
4 cups of shredded cabbage
4 carrots, cut into thin strips
(I used rainbow carrots, thats why they look red in the picture)
2 green onions, sliced
1 large bunch of snow peas, cut in half
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp of minced ginger
1 Tbsp of honey
Cook your ramen according to package, toss with a little bit of sesame oil, so the noodles don't stick together. Set your noodles aside. In order to get a crisp sears tofu you must dry it out a little. I cut my tofu into cubes and the pat it dry with paper towel to soak up the excess water it holds. I then season and sear the tofu in sesame oil. When your tofu is golden brown transfer it to a separate bowl. Add your cooked noodles back to you heated pan, add your shredded cabbage, green onions, snow peas,
and carrots. Toss your noodle and veggie mix, your noodles will start to get crispy, which is good.
In a small bowl add your soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and honey and mix well. Add this sauce to your noodle mixture and let cook for another 7 to 10 minutes. Add back your tofu and cook for another two minutes. Serve warm.
