Quick Veggie noodles!!

No meal can be quicker than throwing all the ingredients of a well balanced meal in the same pan. This recipe is a quick,delicious and satisfying meal.I was in a mood for a complete veggie meal and that explains the addition of tofu.

8 0z extra firm tofu drained and dried
1 green pepper sliced
1 orange pepper sliced
1 medium sized onion cut into half moons
4 cloves of garlic chopped

1 cup mushrooms sliced
2 tbsp soy sauce( low sodium)
1 tbsp vinegar
2 tsp sambal olek
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 tbsp honey
8 oz whole wheat noodles
Salt and pepper to taste

Cook the noodles as per package instructions. Drain and rinse under cold water.

Mix the soy sauce, vinegar, sambal olek. Divide the sauce in two parts.Use the first half to marinate the tofu and keep for about 10 minutes. Lightly saute the tofu on a pan sprayed with non stick spray.

In a large wok, add the oil garlic, onion and cook until onion is soft. Add the pepper and mushroom and cook until done but still crisp.Add the tofu and cook for about a minute or so. Add the remaining sauce mixture, honey ,salt and pepper. Add the noodles and mix well.

Top with toasted sesame seeds and dried red chilli flakes.
