Chinese Noodles

Ingredients

1 tablespoon lower-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
8 ounces firm tofu, in ½" cubes
8 ounces angel hair pasta or thin spaghetti
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
1 cup snow peas, in 1" pieces
1 cup small broccoli florets
1 cup carrots, in thin half rounds
cup onion, in thin half rounds
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, (optional garnish)

Preparation

1
This mildly spiced pasta is quick and easy, and you can serve it hot or cold!
2
If you like it spicier, add a little more hoisin sauce and some crushed red pepper when you dress the noodles.
3
Make marinade: In a small bowl whisk together the hoisin sauce, soy sauce and rice vinegar. Reserve 2 Tbs of the marinade; pour the rest over the tofu and stir to coat.
4
Put the tofu cubes on a nonstick baking sheet and bake at 350 for 20 minutes, turning once. While the tofu bakes, prepare the pasta and vegetables, as follows.
5
Break the pasta in half and cook according to package directions. When done, drain the pasta and toss it with the sesame oil. Add the reserved marinade and toss again.
6
Saute the snow peas, broccoli, carrots and onion in a nonstick skillet (with a little water to prevent sticking) until crisp tender. Add them along with the baked tofu to the pasta and gently mix. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve hot or cold.
7
*Chinese hoisin sauce, a soybean-based cooking and dipping sauce, is available in Asian groceries and many supermarkets.
