By popular demand... The recipe for STIR FRY A LA SCARY TOFU!!

Yup, I'm going to post it! Be afraid... Be very afraid!!

Tofu portion:

1/2 block extra firm tofu, cut into your desired shape
2 1/2 tbsp soya sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar (not packed)
1 tbsp sweet chili sauce
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp grated fresh ginger

Once you've cut up the tofu, set it onto some paper towel, and press it dry with more paper towel on top. (could you understand that sentence?) Leave the tofu on the paper towel while you measure the rest of the ingredients into a bowl or, for fewer dishes to clean up afterwards, a freezer bag, and mix them. (This is fun with the freezer bag... You can just smush them around!) Add the tofu into the sauce, and toss to coat. Let this marinate for a while... I left mine for just under 24 hours, but you could probably just do a couple of hours. It's pretty easy to do this the night before, though.

STIR-FRY A LA SCARY TOFUUUU!!!

Tofu prepared earlier
1 package of Udon Noodles (See the pictures in my 'picture' post for the brand... You can find them at most grocery stores, I think)
4 tsp of canola oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp sweet chili sauce
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
2 cups of frozen mixed veggies, stir-fry or thai or chinese... Whatever you like
2 cup of bean sprouts

Place your frozen veggies in a Ziploc Steamer bag, and steam them for a little less time than the bag's instructions say.

Put the udon noodles in a bowl, and cover with boiling water. 

Heat the wok over medium-high heat, and put 2 tsp of oil in the pan. Take the tofu out of the sauce (sauce + hot oil = ouch) and saute until golden brown. Turn, and do the same thing on the other side.

Add 1 tsp of oil, and the garlic, ginger, sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, and brown sugar to the pan, and then add the steamed veggies. Saute until heated through. Add the bean sprouts and saute until tender-crisp.

Remove the tofu/veggie mix from the pan, and put in the remaining 1 tsp of oil. Drain the udon noodles and add to the pan, sauteing until heated through. If you'd like, you can add some of the tofu marinade in, so that the udon noodles absorb some of the saucy goodness.

Plate the noodles, and top with the tofu/veggie mix.

Serves 2-3. (I calculated out 9 points each for 2 servings, but that's probably high, since I didn't use all the tofu marinade)

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!!
