By: Got the general idea from a salad that Whole Foods sells...

Category: Salads

This recipe is suitable for a: vegetarian/vegan diet.



Ingredients:

-----------------------------------------------------


Peanut Sauce



1/2 cup natural peanut butter

3 TB tamari

1 tsp garlic chili sauce (optional)

2 TB warm water or more depending on how thin you prefer

Salad



2 TB sesame oil

14 oz tofu, drained

34 TB tamari

10 oz package udon noodles

3 cups napa cabbage (green part only), chopped

3 carrots, sliced

1 bunch red radishes, quartered

1/3 cup peanuts, dry roasted (for garnish)





Instructions:

-----------------------------------------------------


In a food processor, mix together all Peanut Sauce ingredients until well combined.



Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Cut tofu into 1/2" thick slices. When oil is hot, sauté tofu on first side for approximately 7 minutes. Carefully sprinkle tofu with tamari and sauté for about 4 more minutes or until the first side is golden brown. Flip tofu and sprinkle second side with tamari. Sauté until golden brown and transfer tofu to a paper towel to drain.



Cook udon noodles according to package directions and drain. In a large pot with a steamer basket, steam cabbage, carrots and radish for 5-7 minutes or until carrots are crisp tender. Combine noodles with vegetables and mix in peanut sauce. Top with peanuts and serve.

This is a great summer salad, with colorful and crunchy veggies and a creamy peanut dressing...



Can be served chilled or at room temperature so it's great for potlucks and picnics...
