Thai Tofu Veggie Stir Fry

Submitted by: SNOWHIT

Introduction

At the end of summer last year, I had thai basil I wanted to preserve, so I made a pesto. Similar to a traditional pesto, just switch out peanuts for the pine nuts and leave out the cheese. I also added a bit of serrano pepper for heat- trying to replicate the Thai chile basil flavor . I frozen the pesto into ice cubes and saved them in the freezer.

This stir fry could easily take more veggies or reduce the noodles a bit. I was going to use buckwheat soba until I noticed the sodium content, so I used the no salt added somen instead.
