Ginger Zucchini Noodles

Ingredients (Serves 2)

For Tofu and Marinade

  • 1 pack (454g) of extra firm premium organic tofu (sliced into thirds, then halved)
  • 1/3 cup organic gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. organic ginger (chopped)
  • 1 clove organic garlic (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. organic sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. organic shallots (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp. organic extra virgin olive oil

For Zucchini Noodles

  • 2 organic zucchini (spiralized)
  • 1 carrot (julienne cut)
  • 1/2 sweet red pepper (julienne cut)
  • 1 tsp. organic garlic (chopped)
  • 1 tsp. organic ginger (chopped)
  • 1/2 tsp. dried organic red chili flakes
  • 1 tbsp. organic gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. organic sesame oil
  • 2 organic green onions (sliced)

Directions

  1. Tofu and Marinade: Combine garlic, ginger, soy sauce, maple syrup, shallots and sesame oil in sealable bag and add tofu. Marinate for 12-24 hours.
  2. Zucchini Noodles: In a medium-sized hot frying pan add sesame oil, garlic, ginger and chili flakes. Sauté quickly, 5-10 seconds. Add zucchini, carrots, peppers and toss quickly. Add soy sauce to coat evenly. This should be done quickly to ensure zucchini isn’t overcooked and still has a firm bite to it.
  3. Assembly: Remove tofu from marinade and pat dry. Sear both sides in olive oil until golden brown. Place on top of zucchini noodles and top with chopped green onions. Enjoy!
