Helllooooo again! This is for Dr. Batzner!
Recipe for the Molasses/Lime Sauce! (more like guestimation)
- 2/3 Cup Lime Juice
- 1/3 Cup Molasses
- 1/4 Cup rice vinegar
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 Tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
- 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon mustard seeds (if you don’t have mustard seeds you can omit them or you can put in a teeny tiny squirt of mustard)
- I also put in about 1/4 teaspoon of better than bouillon but you probably don’t need it. You could put in a little more soy sauce if you think you need a little extra something.
- Soba Noodles
- Extra Firm Tofu
- Mushrooms (I used Bella)
- Bok Choy (White Parts)
While your water is heating up chop all of your vegetables however much you want. I used only enough for one person but this sauce could easily be diluted and used for bigger portions. (it’s a little intense)
When your water is boiling turn off heat and add the soba, bok choy, and kale and let sit. Start your tofu.
Add about a tablespoon of garlic to a skillet on medium heat with a little either oil, or earth balance, or whatever you use. Cook for a minute until it is fragrant (my favorite part).
Add the tofu and the mushrooms and cook until the tofu is brown on all sides (I cubed mine you can do slabs or whatever you would like) Making sure to press the water out of the tofu as it cooks.
When noodles are tender, drain and add to the skillet along with the sauce. Cook until it starts to look like a sort of glaze.
***The only thing I wasn’t sure about was the lime juice, but for any of the ingredients use your better judgement and if the sauce is too hot, or too flavorless (I don’t think the flavorless part would happen it is pretty strong) then just mess around with it and add some stuff. Don’t be afraid to experiment!
