First-Time Tofu Shirataki and Turkey Stir Fry

First-Time Tofu Shirataki and Turkey Stir Fry

Introduction

This is how I prepared tofu Shirataki noodles for the first time, utilizing just pantry items and some left over turkey. Of course it was the one time I was out of frozen stir-fry veggie mix, so I'd suggest adding a bag if you want to bulk it up!

Ingredients

    tofu shirataki -8 oz (one bag)
    Unseasoned rice vinegar - 1 tbs.
    Jennie-O Turkey Breast Tenderloin - 3.2 oz **
    Minced Garlic - 3 tsp
    Kikkoman Memmi - 2 tbsp ***
    Tamari Soy sauce - 1 tbsp ****
    Sake, 14.8 mL *****
    Nonstick cooking spray

    ** This happened to be what I had left over. You can substitute in cooked chicken breast, pork, shrimp, whatever! Just adjust the calories accordingly!

    *** Substitute in teriyaki sauce if you can't get Memmi... even better if it's low sodium!

    **** Use low-sodium if you wish. I find the taste of Tamari to be richer, though.

    ***** Substitute 1 tbs dry white wine if you don't have sake

Directions

*Makes 1 large or two regular servings. Can easily be doubled or augmented by the addition of more veggies!*

Drain and rinse shirataki noodles very well. Place in a small pot with enough water to cover them by about an inch. Add vinegar to the water, stir, and allow to come to a boil while you work on the rest of the ingredients.

Dice peppers and cube your protein (turkey or whatever you use). In a nonstick pan, add your sesame oil and a spritx of Pam. Toss in your peppers. Cook for a few minutes, then add garlic. After a minute, add your protein. (Sometime in this time frame your noodles should be boiling. Drain them.)

Once the garlic really starts releasing its aroma, add the well-drained noodles and toss with the peppers, protein and garlic. Next add your memmi and tamari. Mix well. You'll notice that the noodles are pretty absorbent - this is normal. Toss for another minute, then add your sake/ wine. Toss again.

As the noodles get their stir-fry on, you may hear little popping noises. Those would be the noodles getting a little bit browned. Keep them moving, but let them brown up a few seconds here and there -- this adds a nice, toasty flavor thanks to the sesame oil.

Serve immediately!
