Tofu Teriyaki Noodle Bowls & Maple Tahini Dressing

Posted by

I asked all my followers what they wanted this weeks recipe to be and my hubby said, “Tofu Teriyaki Noodle Bowls”. SPECIFIC AF!

Since he’s the only one who would really have to eat the recipe, I decided he had deciding rights. Plus, I LOVE any dish that comes together in a bowl so…

The best thing about this recipe, well it’s actually 2 things.

  1. All the ingredients can be prepped ahead of time and stored in the fridge for easy mealtime all week long.
  2. You don’t even have to divide this up in a pretty bowl. To be honest we ended up mixing this all together in a pot, heating through, and enjoying it like a giant bowl of veggie tofu lo mein. #beinghonest

The maple tahini dressing is so easy to whip up, I’d definitely recommend making extra so you can pour it over salads, top your favorite sandwich, and dip some veggies in it’s leftovers. It is totally optional in this recipe but it’s a great balance to the bowl and adds a really special touch. We just loved it!

Hubby approved. Let’s get prepping!

1 (16oz) package noodles (I used soybean)
4 cups broccoli
2 cups shiitake mushrooms
1 cup of your favorite teriyaki sauce
2 tbsp Soy sauce
1 tbsp Sesame oil
1 cup matchstick carrots
Maple Tahini Dressing:
2 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp tamari/soy sauce
1.5 tbsp maple syrup
Sriracha – optional
Sesame seeds, Avocado, Scallions for garnish
Directions:
1. Begin by prepping all your ingredients.
  • Cut tofu into cubes, marinate in 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce, bake for 20 minutes at 425 degrees F – removing once to toss and flip.
  • Boil noodles in salted water according to package instructions. Drain and rinse, set aside.
  • Steam broccoli, set aside
  • SautΓ© shiitake mushrooms in a large pan with soy sauce and sesame oil. Remove from pan and set aside.
2. Make sauceΒ by mixing all maple tahini dressing ingredients in a small bowl until well combined. Set aside.
3. If you do all of the above at the same time while your tofu bakes, everything should be prepped and ready to assemble at the same time. Assemble your bowls with the noodles in the middle and building around. Drizzle the sauce over top when ready to serve. Garnish. And enjoy it veganly much!
