Peanut Sesame Noodles with Tofu and Vegetables

Submitted by: VALKYRIA-

Introduction

If you use a sweetened peanut butter, omit the brown sugar (or greatly reduce it). Mine had no added sugar.

You can add whatever vegetables you like.

Red Wine or Rice vinegar can be used instead of Cider.

If the peanut butter sauce is too runny, add some cornstarch and microwave for 1 min, then stir.

Cut the tofu cutlet into 1/2 to 1 inch chunks. Heat 1/2 tbsp canola and 1/2 tbsp sesame oil in pan, add tofu. Sautee until it starts to crisp, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a paper-towel covered plate to rest. Salt and pepper tofu if desired (not in nutrition info). Turn off heat.
