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!
