Weekend Rundown

This weekend was all about relaxing, which is my favorite kind of weekend :-)

Last night Tim and I made Vegetable Lo Mein with Tofu. It was delish. Here's the recipe:

Vegetable Lo Mein with Tofu

                        1 box uncooked spaghetti
                        1/2 cup vegetable oil
                        2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms
                        1 cup shredded carrots
                        1 onion, sliced
                        2 cloves garlic, minced
                        2 cups fresh bean sprouts
                        1/2 cup chopped green onions
                        1 tablespoon cornstarch
                        1 cup vegetable broth
                        1/4 cup hoisin sauce
                        1 tablespoon soy sauce
                        1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
                        1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  1. Stir Fry tofu in about ¼ cup vegetable oil (add more if needed). Cook on each side until golden (Should take about 10 minutes)
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain
  3. Heat oil in a large wok or saute pan. Stir fry mushrooms, carrots, onion and garlic until tender. Stir in bean sprouts and green onions; cook one minute. Mix cornstarch and chicken broth in a small bowl and add to stir fry. Stir in hoisin sauce, soy sauce, ginger, cayenne pepper. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.
  4. Add cooked spaghetti, and toss. Serve immediately.
