Imperial

Metric

  • ¼ cup of peanut butter, smooth
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut aminos*
  • 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of lime juice (fresh is best)
  • 1 1” piece of ginger
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3 zucchinis—spiralized*
  • 1 12-ounce brick of extra-firm tofu
  • 3 teaspoons of canola oil, divided
  • 1 cup of mushrooms
  • 1 cup of Snow Peas
  • 1 large onion-chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper—diced
  • 2 diced jalapeños
  • ¼ cup of sesame seeds
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 60 g of peanut butter, smooth
  • 15 ml of sesame oil
  • 5 ml of coconut aminos*
  • 5 ml of apple cider vinegar
  • 5 ml of lime juice (fresh is best)
  • 1 1” piece of ginger
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3 zucchinis—spiralized*
  • 340 g of extra-firm tofu
  • 15 ml of canola oil, divided
  • 75 g of mushrooms
  • 150 g of Snow Peas
  • 1 large onion-chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper—diced
  • 2 diced jalapeños
  • 40 g of sesame seeds
  • Black pepper, to taste

HOW TO MAKE THE NOODLES:

  • Cut tofu into small cubes and arrange on a cutting board.
  • Place paper towels over the tofu and top with a heavy dish (this eliminates any excess liquid). Let stand for about 20 minutes.
  • Prepare vegetables and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, add peanut butter, apple cider vinegar, sesame oil, lime juice, garlic, and coconut aminos and whisk together until smooth.
  • In a wok or large skillet, heat 1 1/2 teaspoons of canola oil over medium-high.
  • Add tofu and cook for about a minute and a half each side.
  • Remove from wok and set aside. Then heat remaining oil, along with ginger, onion, mushrooms, and peppers. Stir-fry for two minutes and add tofu back in with snow peas and jalapeno.
  • Remove from heat and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Toss zucchini (you don’t have to cook this) with tofu mixture and add sauce. Combine thoroughly and stir in sesame seeds.
  • Divide into four portions and serve.

COOK’S NOTE

If you can’t find coconut aminos, soy sauce or tamari will taste just as good.

Additionally, if you don’t have a spiralizer, a vegetable peeler can be used in its place.

Keep in mind, going the analog route may cost you some time.
