I hope everyone had a great weekend. I had a relaxing weekend with a funny movie (Delhi Belly) and a get together at friend's place. After having a great lunch at friend's place didn't feel like eat anything for dinner. So wanted to have quick noodles for dinner but ended up making a feast.
Here is what I ended up making.
Lettuce Wraps with Tofu
Saute noodles in Peanut sauce.
Stir Fry tofu
1 packet of hakka noodles
ginger 1/2 inch ginger
garlic cloves (4)
Trader Joes (Satay Peanut sauce)
Tofu (i used one packet)
1/2tsp sesame seeds
In a pan add oil. Once oil is hot add grated ginger, garlic, chopped green chilies and small cubed tofu. Add salt and saute for sometime till you see tofu turned into golden color. Add soy sauce(1tsp) and adjust spices. Remove from heat and garish with roasted peanuts and serve with lettuce and hot sauce.
Believe me you cannot stop with one wrap.
Stir Fry Tofu:
In the same pan add oil. Once oil is hot add grated ginger, garlic, chopped green chilies,sesame seeds and medium sized cubed tofu. Saute till you get nice golden color on all sides of the tofu. Add soy sauce and peanut sauce and adjust spices. Remove from heat and serve.
Cook noodles as per the package instructions.
( This is how I cooked: Cook noodles in boiled water for 5 to 6 mts and drain the excess water. (I always add 1tsp oil and pinch of salt to the boiling water. Oil helps to prevent sticking of noodles))
In a wok add oil. Once oil is hot add grated ginger, garlic and chopped chilies(I ove spicy food so I added more chilies) and peanut sauce. Cook for 5 mts and add boiled noodles and mix well. Adjust spices and turn off the heat.
Yummy noodles are ready to be served.
