Colourful, Peanutty Tofu and Veggie Bowl with Glass Noodles

We need some colour this time of year, don't we? Looking at this bowl of food makes me feel happy, and my belly too! I hope it will do the same for you.

How's 2018 treating you? What have you been up to? We just finished watching the series Please Like Me; it's a short little series but a good one. It's available on Netflix. There isn't much on Netflix that appeals to us other than Jane the Virgin, so it was nice to find another gem. These aren't new shows, but if you haven't tried either one of them and you have Netflix or mad streaming skillz, check them out!

Now, onto the dish!

Peanut Noodles with Veggies and Tofu

~ 250g or 8 oz glass noodles
3 carrots, peeled and finely grated
1/2 cabbage, thinly sliced 
200g of sugar snap peas, chopped
350g extra firm tofu, chopped into whatever shape you like
1 tbsp canola oil
2 limes
peanuts, crushed

1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
1 tbsp grated ginger
1 tbsp sriracha 
4 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 tbsp agave nectar or maple syrup 

Cook your noodles according to the package.

Heat one tablespoon of oil in a non-stick skillet. Once heated, place your tofu in the skillet and brown for one to two minutes, each side.

Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan. Cook on medium for two to three minutes, stirring constantly.

When the tofu is done, turn off the heat and remove from the heat. Add the noodles and sauce to the tofu and stir until the sauce is evenly distributed.

Divvy up the noodles and tofu in bowls and then add the veg on top. Sprinkle with peanuts and squirt some lime juice over top or give every bowl a wedge.
