Hey my dears, ?

I‘m back again with a new recipe for you.
Today I namely have “asian” noodles with crispy roasted tofu with a delicious creamy chili peanut sesame sauce, in which I could just dive in!

I have to admit that I don‘t really like tofu so much, as it‘s relatively tasteless, but if tofu is spicy marinated and fried golden brown crispy, then it’s just a totally different flavor! ??

This dish is, of course, quickly and easily prepared. Moreover I mean, that tofu is now available in practically every refrigerated shelf. Just like some vegetables, peanut butter, sesame seeds and noodles. You don‘t need to go into an asian shop extra for that because such products have now almost all supermarkets in stock. ?

Furthermore, what is in my opinion nearly the most important, of course, are the seasonings and sauces. Because they provide the typical “far eastern flavor“ as well as the spicy aromas. But even these products are available almost everywhere. If you prefer it more hot, you can, of course, add more chili, no matter if as a paste, fresh or dried – everything “heats up the oven”! ?

And now let’s start with the recipe:

  4. Heat up some oil in a pan.

  6. Then add about 1/2 cup sauce and let simmer until the sauce starts to evaporate and the tofu absorbs the liquid.

  8. Heat up the rest of the sauce in another saucepan.
  9. Once the noodles are ‚al dente‘, pour off the cooking water, drain the noodles and combine with the remaining sauce in the pan.

    This is amazing! We, Asians, love noodles and this is just “the bomb!” Love the mixture of sweetness, saltiness, and sourness combined. I made my own version, but different noodles and tofu (found only a softer type) but the flavour is rich! I have made similar version of sauce to this, which I called Asian Noodle Salad (with cabbage, carrots and other veggies plus pork belly cuts). This recipe is quick-easy to make and everyone will love! Thanks for sharing, Bianca!
