The vegan fast continues! Today I made a faux grilled tofu dish for dinner. I marinated the tofu in Hoisin sauce, which I have never tried before. It had a very interesting flavor similar to the bean paste used in Korean cooking. To go along with my lenten-vegan fast, I have been having smoothies or fruit juice for breakfast and lunch, so by dinner time I am ready to chew something savory. This dish did not disappoint. I served it with buckwheat noodles and a simple kale stir-fry.

Ingredients:

1 bunch Soba noodles

1 package firm tofu

1/2 cup Hoisin sauce

3 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 tablespoon grape seed oil

1 tablespoon Bragg’s liquid aminos (a gluten-free soy sauce alternative)

4 cups kale

2 tablespoon sesame seeds

4-5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

1 cup straw mushrooms (or any other type you like)

Directions:

#1 prepare the soba noodles according to directions and set aside to cool

#2 Mix together Hoisin sauce, honey, rice vinegar, and Bragg’s liquid aminos

#3 Slice tofu into squares and cover with marinade; chill for one hour

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#4 Set oven to broil on high. When tofu has marinated, place on wire rack in oven. Cook for 8-10 minutes until deep brown and crispy on the edges

#5 In a saute pan, heat grapes seed oil. Cook kale, sesame seeds, garlic, and mushrooms over medium to high heat for 4-6 minutes

#6 Serve tofu and vegetables over cold soba noodles

 

Enjoy!

    I’m familiar with hoisin sauce but have never used Bragg’s–it’s fun how there are always new tastes to discover! This meal looks delicious.

  2. Braggs is great, and you can use it on anything. Thanks for stopping by!
