Thai Style Tofu & Noodles from Clean Eating Magazine

Tofu & Noodles

  • 2 quarts, plus 1 Tbsp water
  • 1/2 lb whole-wheat linguine
  • olive oil spray
  • 1 (14 oz) extra firm tofu, drained & cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 medium red pepper, cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1 medium green pepper, cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt

Sauce

  • 2 Tbsp natural, unsalted peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/4 tsp dried red pepper flakes
  • 1/3 cup water

Cook linguine in large pot in 2 quarts water. Meanwhile, puree sauce ingredients in a blender for about 15 seconds until creamy; set aside. Mist a large nonstick skillet and place over medium heat. Add tofu cubes and spoon garlic and soy sauce evenly over all pieces. Saute tofu, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes.

While tofu is cooking, spray a separate non-stick skillet with olive oil spray and place over high heat. Add red and green peppers and sprinkle with salt. Saute peppers for 2 to 3 minutes; pour 1 Tbsp water into the pan and immediately cover with lid. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until peppers are tender and slightly blackened.

After the tofu has cooked for about 5 minutes and is slightly golden brown, add sauce and turn heat to low. Gently stir once or twice as sauce thicken, about 1 to 2 minutes. Serve peppers and tofu sauce over linguine.

Recipe Notes: This recipe is so good. It is kind of high in fat but it is mostly “good” fat. I took leftovers for lunch without the pasta to make it somewhat better. Dewey even gave this two thumbs up.
