Tofu Noodle Bowls with Peanut Tamari Dressing
This Tofu Noodle Bowl with Peanut Tamari dressing is the ultimate power bowl. It is loaded with protein, multi-textured, and so full of flavor.
Yield: 4 bowls
- 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
- 4 oz. sliced mushrooms I used portobello mushrooms
- 2 Tbsp. tamari sub soy sauce or coconut aminos
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp ground ginger
Peanut Tamari Dressing:
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
- 3 Tbsp. tamari sub soy sauce or coconut aminos
- 2 Tbsp creamy peanut butter unsweetened
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 large bundle kale thick steams removed and chopped into thin strips
- 8 oz. shiratake noodles cooked according to package directions and chilled
- 2 cup carrots sliced into matchsticks
- 1 batch Easy Baked Tofu
- 1 cup fermented kimchi* optional—but highly recommended
For the mushrooms:
Heat coconut oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the mushrooms, tamari, salt, and ginger. Stir well to coat mushrooms.
Cook for 5-10 minutes, or until mushrooms are dark, soft, and fragrant. Set aside until ready to serve.
For the dressing:
In a small bowl whisk together all dressing ingredients. Taste and adjust flavors if needed—adding more tamari for saltiness, peanut butter for nuttiness, and maple syrup for sweetness. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
For the bowls:
Divide the kale and noodles between 4 bowls. Top with cooked mushrooms, carrots, tofu and kimchi. Serve with peanut-tamarin dressing on the side. Leftovers will keep for up to 3 days refrigerated in airtight container—though best enjoyed fresh.
*If you’re going to include kimchi in your bowl, be sure to choose a high-quality, traditionally fermented brand with very minimal ingredients (all of which you should be familiar with). Kimchi can be found in most natural grocery stores or even at farmers markets. Kimchi is also high in naturally occurring probiotics and bacteria which form in the fermentation process and are great for the gut—which makes it a nutrient-rich addition to any meal.
I like purchasing my kimchi from the company “Farm Hand”. This company is local to Colorado and supports local farmers. If you’re in CO, give this brand a try—if you’re not, I encourage you to look for a company local to your area and support the farmers in your state.
