Tofu Noodles with Peanut Sauce

I have been buying a lot of tofu noodles from the Asian store. I love the idea of having noodles that have no carbs and are full of protein. The great thing is that my daughter loves them as well.. so I try to make them as often as I can.

This particular dish is a one pot meal- which is my favorite to make! I decided to add all sorts of veggies including mushrooms and bok choy. For protein I used chicken- but any meat or fish can be used. One can keep it vegetarian and eliminate the meat altogether.

I made a delicious sauce with peanut butter, tamari, lime juice, palm sugar, fish sauce.. etc. I basically took out what I had in my pantry and added it to the sauce.. it was delicious. My daughter who is not a peanut butter fan loved the noodles… somehow she didn’t notice the peanut flavor…

This is a great noodle dish to make through the week…
