Spicy Tofu Stir Fry
1/2 pkg extra firm tofu (preferable herb)
4 (or more) cloves garlic, crushed
fresh ginger (about the size of your thumb or larger),grated
4-5 cups chopped fresh vegetables (snow peas, broccoli,red onion, peppers etc...)
1/2 pkg fresh lo mein, soba or other asian noodles
1-2 tablespoon oil, optional (hot pepper oil is excellent)
A handful of cashews, optional
Cut tofu into squares.
Make marinade with crushed garlic cloves, ginger, enough soya sauce to just about cover tofu, and as much cayenne as you want - if you are timid, just a shake or two is good, if you like it hot, try 1/8 - 1/4 tsp. Marinate tofu while you prepare the vegetables. (If possible, marinate tofu for a few hours - it takes on more of the flavour of the marinade.
Cook noodles according to the package directions.
Heat oil, if using in a wok. When hot, add tofu and marinade. Stir fry until tofu is heated through. Add vegetables and stir fry as normal. Before serving, add noodles and stir to coat. Add cashews if using.
