Soba Tofu Stirfry

The Plan
Cook noodles.
Mix sauce.
Saute veggies and tofu.

The Ingredients
1 "bundle" Soba Noodles
3 Tbsp Sesame Oil
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce, low sodium
1 tsp Fish Sauce
1 tsp Mirin
1 Tbsp Sriracha
1 Tbsp Sugar
1/2 large Onion, chopped
3 cloves Garlic, chopped
1 pound Tofu (firm), cubed*
1 pint Baby Bella Mushrooms, sliced
1 head Broccoli, cut into florets

The Method
Cook Soba Noodles according to package. Reserve.

In a small bowl, combine Soy Sauce, Mirin, Fish Sauce, Sriracha and Sugar. If you like it hot, add more Sriracha. Whisk in 1 Tbsp of Sesame Oil. Reserve.

Heat remaining Sesame Oil in a large saute pan over medium high heat. Add Onion and cook until translucent. Add Garlic and cook until fragrant. Next, add the tofu and stir well. Once the Tofu will begins to brown a bit, add Mushrooms and cook until just softened. Add the Broccoli and stir. Lastly, add about 1/2 of the liquid mixture. Stir or toss well to coat. Continue cooking until the broccoli is bright green. In a pretty way, not a freaky nuclear way.

Combine the Noodles and the remaining liquid.

To Serve
Place some Noodles on a plate. Top with veggies and tofu. That's it. Seriously, Asian food is easy. Except having to buy all the crazy ingredients.

*Don't forget to press your tofu for about half an hour. Eek, that sounded gross. Wrap the block of tofu with some paper towels and then put another couple of plates on top to provide pressure. This will squeeze some of the excess moisture out.
