Ingredients

    8 ounces udon or whole-wheat noodles
    2 tablespoons canola oil
    1 teaspoon loose green tea leaves, preferably gunpowder (optional)
    2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    8 ounces flavored baked tofu (see Tip), cut into matchsticks
    1 small red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
    1 small yellow bell pepper, cut into thin strips
    4 scallions, cut diagonally into 2-inch pieces
    2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
    2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


Directions

1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook noodles according to the package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water to prevent sticking. Set aside.

2. Heat a wok over medium heat. Add oil and swirl to coat. Add tea leaves (if using), ginger and garlic. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tofu and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add red and yellow bell peppers and cook, stirring, until the peppers soften, 1 to 2 minutes.

3. Stir in the noodles, scallions, soy sauce and vinegar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the noodles are heated through, about 2 minutes. Stir in sesame oil and pepper. Toss to combine. Serve warm or cold.
