- 1 tsp. sesame oil
- 8 ounces tofu shirataki noodles
- 1 cup bamboo shoots
- 1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms
- 2 tsp. soy sauce
- 1 cup stir-fry vegetables (broccoli and carrots work well)
Combine oil and soy sauce in wok or frying pan with sides and preheat over medium heat. Prepare shirataki noodles per package directions. Add noodles and vegetables to wok or frying pan; stir fry until mixture is heated through but vegetables are still crispy. Add bamboo shoots and shiitake mushrooms; heat through. Serve immediately.

Cooking Tofu Tip: Even extra firm tofu contains a good amount of water, so you’ll want to press as much moisture out. Open and drain the tofu, wrap in paper towels, place on a plate, and put another plate on top. Put something heavy on the top plate for about ten minutes.
