Asian Tofu with Crunchy Veg, Noodles & Hoisin Sauce

All my family love noodles and they are getting there with tofu.  Because my husband is vegetarian it really helps if I can cook meals that all can eat.

This recipe is great for us. I have been known to separately stirfry a little chicken for a couple of the growing boys, but love the days I can get them to just eat veggie too.

Serves: Four people
  • 2 tbs salt-reduced soy sauce
