I love dabbling with asian cuisine. One of my earliest recipes is my take on Pho, a Vietnamese noodle soup that I still love to this day! I find asian food has so many bright flavours, and as someone who eats predominantly vegetarian and vegan meals, asian-inspired meals incorporate lots of brilliant vegetarian options.
This dish has Cauldron‘s Organic Marinated Tofu as the star of the show. The little pieces of tofu are delightfully spiced with tamari soy sauce, garlic and ginger, to which I add a complimentary DIY teriyaki sauce and diced vegetables sat in a bed of noodles. As with most of my recipes, feel free to add your own twists – the dish is also nice with sliced water chestnut or fresh beansprouts for a crunch, or chilli flakes for a pinch of fiery goodness.
This recipe is also a great starting point if you’re looking for a meal for the office or on the go. Cauldron’s tofu can be eaten straight from the box rather than cooked, making meals one step easier to whip up, so perhaps you could try pairing it with cooked noodles, a few edamame beans, and a sweet chilli sauce. Let me know if you give this, or my recipe below, a try!
Teriyaki Tofu & Noodles
3 nests of medium noodles
1 pack of Cauldron Organic Marinated Tofu Pieces
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 carrot, sliced like matchsticks
4 spring onions, sliced
2 cm ginger root
1 handful of fresh coriander
1 small lime
Sprinkle of sesame seeds
- To prepare, slice your spring onions into centimetre lengths, slice the carrots into matchsticks, peel and grate the ginger and tear the coriander.
- For the teriyaki mix, into a small bowl add the grated ginger, soy sauce and oil, squeeze in lime juice and mix.
- Now boil water in a kettle and decant into a sauce pan.
- Add your noodle nests to the pan and leave to simmer for 5-6 minutes.
- In the meantime, heat your teriyaki mix in a wok or frying pan, and add the spring onions, carrots, and the Cauldron marinated tofu pieces.
- Once the noodles are cooked, drain and serve into two bowls.
- Now spoon over your teriyaki sauce, vegetables and tofu, topping with coriander and sesame seeds.
