Crispy Tofu Noodle Stir-fry
Tonight, I whipped up a quick noodle stir-fry using Trader Joe's brand General Tao's sauce, frozen vegetables and rice stick noodles. I am a true believer in making your life easier by cooking with store-prepared products once in a while. Life is about balance, cooking included. What made the dish so special was the crispy tofu. I used extra-firm tofu, which holds up to frying. In order to achieve a good crispy edge, it is important to drain your tofu for 10 minutes on paper towels to blot out any excess water. For frying, I added a thin layer of sesame oil over high heat, frying tofu on each side for about 3-5 minutes. Send my a pic of your next creation!
