(via Oh She Glows)


60mL toasted or untoasted sesame oil

3 to 4 Tbsp rice vinegar, to taste

25mL tahini

1 Tbsp pure maple syrup, or to taste

1 Tbsp low-sodium tamari

2 cloves garlic, minced


1 225g pack soba noodles

1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and diced

1 medium yellow bell pepper, seeded and diced

3 to 4 green onions, finely chopped

50g coriander leaves, minced

1 batch Cast-Iron Tofu (recipe)

Fine sea salt

1 Tbsp sesame seeds, for garnish

Fresh lime juice, for serving (optional)

Sriracha, for serving

Prepare the Cast-Iron Tofu.

Make the dressing. In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients until smooth. Cover and refrigerate to thicken slightly.

Make the salad. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook the noodles according to the package directions. Drain and place in a large bowl.

Add the bell peppers, spring onions and coriander to the bowl with the noodles. Add the dressing and toss to coat. Add half the tofu cubes and toss again. Taste and season with sea salt if necessary.

Top the salad with the remaining tofu, sesame seeds, and coriander scattered on top. You can also add a squeeze of lime juice on top of each bowl just before serving or simply serve with a lime wedge. The salad can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. The tofu will soften as it sits, but will remain tasty.

1 lb extra-firm tofu

peanut oil

small tortillas, warmed


10 Tbsp hoisin sauce, 4 Tbsp water, 2 Tbsp soy sauce

Heat a wok over medium-high heat. Add a splash of peanut oil and heat until very hot. Add the ground pork and stir-fry, breaking up the large pieces, until the meat is cooked through. Set aside.

If there is too much fat in the wok, wipe off some of the excess.

Add the garlic and ginger, toss for about 15 seconds.

Stir in the sauce, water chestnuts, green onions and edamame.

For extra spice, add a teaspoon chili paste with garlic or crushed red pepper flakes when you add the other seasonings.
