Special Sauce

What I'm Eating, II

Oh, let me just sing the praises of the Tofu Shiritaki noodle now. Seriously. This stuff is so tasty, and for 40 calories a bag? Dieters should rejoice. This stuff is good. The Angelhair is what I tried first, and turned it into the fastest, tastiest lunch that you can get on the table in 10 minutes.

Teriyaki Tofu Shiritaki

1 bag Tofu Shiritaki angelhair noodles (found where you find your tofu)
about 2 cups or so of frozen stirfry veggies (I used a half bag of snap pea stir fry mix and a half bag of red/green pepper strips)
a swirl or two of olive oil
about 2T GOOD quality teriyaki sauce (Cooks Illustrated has a great easy recipe...)

Heat up a frying pan or wok with the oil, toss in your frozen veggies and cook them till they're nearly done. Meanwhile, drain and rinse the noodles in a colander, and run a knife through them a few times to shorten them slightly. When the veggies are nearly done, toss in the noodles an teriyaki sauce, heat through till everything's done, and enjoy! It makes 2 really big servings, and would be great with a side of fruit.

The angelhair noodles have the texture of very well cooked rice noodles, and it really works for this. YUM. I'll be stocking up on bags of these, and will post as new recipes come to me.

Also- yesterday's clammy pasta spirals are really good the second day (or even the first) if you add about 1/2 block of lowfat cream cheese that has been melted with a little chicken broth- (or veggie broth) and a diced tomato. Makes it sorta alfredo-y, but not lethally fatty. Taaasty.

Now this does sound delicious. I've seen those tofu noodles in the store but haven't tried them. I'll have to pick up a bag or two the next time I'm there.
Love the recipe too!
