I needed something comforting and got into the kitchen last night to find tofu in the fridge. Everyday the news just gets grimmer and grimmer, I've stopped watching any news, I've reduced my time on social media. The packet of noodles and the tofu were calling out to me. I finally decided to try something out, my version of a nourishing broth, "A hug in a bowl" my version of a Thukpa. The broth / stock can be made with any veggies you have, if you've got half a cauliflower, add that, any peppers add that, If you have leeks, herbs add that. I added what I had. Mushroom, spring onions, chicken work really well. I didn't have those so used what I had. Make sure you have garlic, ginger, onions and black pepper to give you an immunity boosting stock, add turmeric if you like. This stock is really easy to freeze, you can add it to all your dishes. The recipe is fairly simple for the stock, add everything, simmer for an hour. Boil your noodles in the same broth, I had Frozen momos so I added those as well. For the Tofu in my secret spicy sauce: 1tsp butter 1tsp sesame oil (use any oil) 1tsp sesame seeds 2tbsp soy sauce 2tbsp honey 2tbsp vinegar 1heaped tbsp chilli paste (use anything you have, store bought fun and foods chilli garlic paste is really spicy) toss the tofu lightly in it. lastly, pour the noodles and soup into your bowl, add any greens (I didn't have any pok choy but would have been amazing) or beans, top it up with the tofu, a little lemon juice and fresh herbs! Serve hot! It's a one pot meal and super comforting. Hope you enjoyed this really easy recipe!
