Meatless Monday #1: Teriyaki Tofu Noodles


This is my first meatless Monday. It’s only 2pm and I’m already thinking of chicken wings, rendang and eggs. I’m gonna strive through the day without meat! Yes I will!

A lot of of my Instagram followers have been asking me for the recipe, so here it is! It’s the same as my teriyaki chicken noodles some time back. I really didn’t follow anyone’s recipe. I just campak-campak everything and cook. The taste turned out awesome though. Hehe.

1 serving of buckwheat noodles (got it at the Japanese section of NTUC Fairprice)
1 tau kwa (firm tofu)
1/2 cup broccoli, cut into bite size pieces
1 clove chopped garlic
1/2 teaspoon of chopped ginger
2 tbspn teriyaki sauce
1 tspn sesame oil
1/4 cup water
1 tbspn extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Boil noodles in a pot for about 3-5 mins, till al dente. Drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a non stick pan, sauté garlic and ginger together till aromatic. Add in teriyaki sauce and sesame oil. Add in tofu and cook on both sides well. Add water and let it simmer for a while. Add in broccoli and let the broccoli cook.

Stir in noodles, salt, pepper and then served while hot with toasted sesame seeds and chopped parsley.
