DIRECTIONS

  • ** To drain tofu: Remove from package and pat dry with paper towel. Place long side down on dinner plate, top with another plate and put heavy weight on it. Weight could be a small potful of water, a heavy can, or even your iron. Set aside and leave like that while you prepare vegetables.
  • When vegetables are all cut and ready, remove the tofu slabs, pat dry and cube.
  • Place tofu cubes in a bowl and add sesame oil and 2 tsp soy sauce. Toss and set aside.
  • At this point, you can place everything into the refrigerator, covered, for up to 24 hours. This way you can prepare in the morning or night before, and finish for dinner.
  • Put broth and 3 tsp soy sauce in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer.
  • Stir in vegetables and vinegar. Continue to simmer,covered about five minutes.
  • Add noodles, stir.
  • Simmer about 6 minutes uncovered, until noodles have just about absorbed the liquid, stir occasionally. If using lingune, you MAY have to use all or part of the leftover 1/2 cup of broth at this time.
  • Gently stir in tofu and pepper flakes.
  • Cover, remove from heat source, and let sit about five minutes allowing pepper flakes to meld.
  • Serve and enjoy. This goes well with my Raindrop Soup.
