The BEST Tofu Noodle Soup

I’ve been sick, so naturally I needed some tofu noodle soup to soothe my throat (and soul). So, of course I needed to share my amazing recipe with you too! Well… here I am and here you go!

The first thing that you need to do is preheat the oven to 350Β°F. Cut your tofu into 1/2″ thick slices (about 8 slices per block) and lay on a clean cloth or a couple paper towels. Then, add another cloth (or paper towels) and set something that weighs a few pounds on top to press out the excess water (unless it’s pre-pressed, of course), for at least 15 minutes. Then chop the celery, carrots, and green onions.

When the tofu has been pressed, simply cut them into halves long-wise, then in fourths vertically. Put them into a medium mixing bowl with 1 tbsp oil, cornstarch, and Mrs. Dash Chicken Grilling seasoning (don’t worry! It’s vegan!) and mix until all the tofu is well coated. Put some parchment paper on a baking sheet and lay the tofu pieces down, making sure not to over lap any of them. If you don’t have parchment paper, just flip them halfway through. Bake for 25 minutes.

While the tofu is baking, heat 1 tbsp of oil in a medium or large pot over medium heat. Then, add the carrots and celery and sautee for about 8 minutes, or until the carrots have started softening. At this point, add in the water, then mix the Better Than Bullion. Turn the heat up to a medium high heat then add the garlic and onion powder. Bring to a boil. Break your pasta into thirds (not completely necessary, but it makes it more like the traditional) and add it to the pot once it’s boiling. Cook 8-10 minutes, or when the noodles are done. Add in the cooked tofu and chopped green onions. Let cool, grab some crackers, and devour!
