Ingredients: 
  • 8-ounces wide flat noodles such as rice, fettuccine, or soba
  • 1 (14-ounce) tub extra firm tofu, drained & press dried
  • 2-3 Tablespoons safflower or peanut oil + more if needed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder or flakes
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced

Instructions: 
  1. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  2. Crumble tofu either using your hands, a fork or a potato masher.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in tofu and season with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Sauté for 5-6 minutes until slightly browned.
  4. Whisk together garlic, Vegan Fish Sauce, sugar, and rice vinegar in a small bowl.
  5. Using the same skillet, adding more oil if needed, add in cooked noodles. Sauté for a couple of minutes to warm noodles through. Slowly add in garlic sauce, tossing noodles in sauce. Lower heat to medium and allow noodles to cook in sauce for 3-4 minutes.
