2tablespoonspeanut oil**or sunflower oil or organic canola oil
1bunchgreen onioncoarsely chopped. Set aside ¼ cup of the green parts for garnish
1tablespoonminced fresh ginger
4cupsbroccoli floretsoptional, but recommended!
8ouncesfettuccine OR pad thai noodles***½ of a 16 ounce box, cooked. (Cook the noodles while the tofu marinates.)
¼cupchopped fresh cilantro
½cuppeanuts**crushed; salted or unsalted is fine
Marinate the Tofu
Arrange the tofu cubes in a shallow bowl. In a small bowl or cup, whisk together the marinade ingredients, and pour it over the tofu. Set aside to marinate while you prep the remaining ingredients.
In the Pan
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat, and cook the tofu (reserving the extra marinade), for about 5-7 minutes, until starts to get nice and browned. Set aside in a bowl or on a plate.
Heat the rest of the oil, and add the green onion, garlic, ginger, and broccoli. Cook, stirring, for 4-6 minutes.
Add the cooked noodles to the pan along with the reserved marinade and the cooked tofu. Cook, stirring, until the noodles are heated and well-coated in the marinade, just a few more minutes.
Garnish and Serve
Divide the contents of the pan into four bowls, and serve topped with ¼ cup bean sprouts, 1 tablespoon cilantro, 2 tablespoons peanuts, and ¼ of a lime.
I am giving you the substitutes below, because I want this recipe to be doable, even if you don't have access to a specialty store or if you have a nut allergy of any sort.
*If you can't find miso paste at your grocery store, just use another 3 tablespoons of soy sauce instead.
**For a peanut-free version, use one of the alternative oils, and replace the peanuts with cashews, pumpkin seeds, or sunflower seeds, depending on what other allergies you're dealing with.
* **If your grocery store doesn't carry pad thai noodles, fettuccine will work just fine.
