Oil Free Teriyaki Noodles with Crispy Tofu

Crispy Tofu and Teriyaki Rice Noodles

This is one of my staple dinners because it’s easy, healthy, and always delicious. I am always down for a noodle bowl! I made up this oil free teriyaki recipe a while ago and use it all of the time for Asian dishes. It’s the perfect balance of sweet and savory and is great over noodles or nice stir fries. Depending on what I’m in the mood for, I change up the veggies I use inside. I love crispy tofu lately and can’t get enough. I like to crisp it up in the oven until they get slightly puffy and crunchy then add it in to the stir fry for protein. It’s really tasty! I always sauté veggies first while I soak the noodles in hot water, bake the tofu, and make the sauce then combine them. I’ve been finding my rice noodles at Whole Foods or Kroger. I also usually add green onions but didn’t have any this time.
