Tofu marinated / oriental dish
First I cook the marinated tofu (recipe below from Whole Foods)
I add it to the rice noodles
While the tofu is cooking the veggies are cooking
Adding it all together and it is a nice oriental dish!
Recipe for the TOFU from whole foods:
Grilled Teriyaki Tofu
Use in sandwiches or wraps, or serve on a bed of sautéed veggies like spinach, carrots, bok choy or bell peppers.
1/4 cup low-sodium tamari ( I used soy sauce-gluten free kind)
2 teaspoons sesame oil (I used Wok Oil which has some ginger and oriental flavors)
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
Olive oil cooking spray
1 (14-ounce) package extra-firm tofu, drained and patted dry, cut crosswise into 8 slices
In a wide, shallow dish, whisk together tamari, sesame oil, honey, rice vinegar, ginger and garlic. Add tofu, turn to coat all over, cover and chill for at least 1 hour or overnight.
Pat tofu dry, then oil lightly with cooking spray. Grill over medium-high heat or broil on a foil-lined baking sheet until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes on each side.

Recipe for veggies:
2 large onions
1 good sized bundle of bok choy
1 large jar of mushrooms (or fresh)
Saute the vegies browning the onions first then adding the white part of the chopped bok choy and the drained mushrooms. When these are about done add the green part of the bok choy and sprinkle with soy sauce and cover and allow to finish cooking.
Add all of the above to cooked rice noodles. Add more soy sauce if desired.
