Pan-frying tofu gives it a lovely crispy texture. Look for steamed chow mein noodles in the refrigerated cases, near the fresh pasta and wonton wrappers.

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg (425 g) firm tofu
  • 2 tablespoons sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 3 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 3/4 cups finely chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 10 oz Cantonese-style steamed chow mein noodles
  • 1/3 cup chopped roasted cashews

Method

Using paper towel, pat tofu dry; cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) cubes. In bowl, whisk together half each of the soy sauce and sesame oil; add tofu and toss to coat.

In wok or large nonstick skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry tofu until light golden and crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer to plate.

Add peas, green onions, ginger, garlic and remaining soy sauce to wok; stir-fry for 2 minutes. Stir in broth and bring to boil; boil for 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and add to wok along with tofu; stir-fry to coat and warm through, about 2 minutes. Stir in remaining sesame oil; sprinkle with cashews.
