Asian Noodle Salad with Oven Roasted Tofu

Since opening, this continues to be our most popular pasta salad. I can't imagine how many tons of this salad have been eaten! We use the Chinese style egg noodles and add green onions and toasted sesame seeds. I've started marinating cubes of extra firm tofu in the dressing before oven roasting and then add them to the pasta. Tossing snow or sugar peas on top just before serving keeps them looking bright and lively. The bit of hot sauce added to the dressing offers a little heat, although not enough to discourage kids from enjoying the pasta.



Kosher Status: Parve
Number of servings: 6 - 8
Main Ingredient(s): Noodles - Asian Style Egg Noodles
Preparation Time: 00:30
Cooking Time: 00:20
Skill Level: 1 - Easy (1 Easy - 5 Hard)
Estimated POINT value:


Ingredients:


  • 1 lb. Chinese style egg noodles
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
  • 2/3 cup bias cut green onions
  • 1 box of snow peas
  • 1 pound extra firm tofu, cubed

Dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons San-J Hot and Spicy Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar



Steps:

Boil the pasta in water until al dente. Rinse in cold water and drain. Mix the dressing ingredients together and pour unto the noodles. Toss to coat. Toast the sesame seeds until lightly browned by putting them in a small frying pan over medium heat. Toss them with the noodles and green onions. Just before serving, sprinkle with the snow peas.

If using the tofu, cut it into cubes and drain on paper towels. Toss with dressing and let sit a few minutes. Put on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake in the oven on 350' until golden brown. Cool and toss into salad.

Comments:

Robin: I can't find Chinese style egg noodles in my small town. Is there any particular thing I should look for when I purchase them online? I'd love to find gluten free too.
Leah: Hi Robin, Go ahead and use any of the gluten-free, flat noodles. Some people use spaghetti shaped but I like a flatter noodle. Try Amazon. Hard to mess this salad up!
Jennie: Hi Leah - just found your site - it is amazing!!! So many things I want to try. For this recipe (Asian Noodle Salad with Oven Roasted Tofu), how far ahead can I make it? I have a ton of people coming for Sukkot and this is a great vegan option.
