We made a quick and easy dinner last night of Vegetable Lo Mein and Caramelized Tofu. The Vegetable Lo Mein was from The Vegetarian Family Cookbook by Nava Atlas and the Caramelized Tofu was from VeganLunchBox (thanks for the tips!). This is the first time I’ve used Soba noodles and they were awesome!! They only need to cook for a few minutes and are suitable for a variety of toppings like peanut sauce, soy sauce, and even a marinara sauce.
This meal was another first; cooking tofu for dinner! I’ve used tofu in many desserts in the past, but never in a main meal. I pressed most of the liquid out of the tofu and cut it in half lengthwise. I wish I would have cut it in half again because the patties turned out to be too thick and not cooked inside. To still save the tofu, I cut off the outside crispy parts and diced those up for the Lo Mein.
I will definitely be making this again and perhaps throw in some other ingredients. After chopping everything up, it only took a few minutes to cook and were on our plates in no time.
