I'm not sure why I ended up on a quest to find the exact noodle bowl I've been craving, but now I can't let it go. So far, this recipe from 101 Cookbooks is the best one I've come across. Maybe I'll stop here?

I didn't have romanesco so I used regular broccoli and I went heavy with it. I like a high ratio of veg : noodles.

tofu slices

I cooked the tofu slices on my large cast iron griddle which I oiled first. I do have a tiny non-stick skillet but I just don't love using it.

These noodles are really simple but hit the spot perfectly. The sauce is like a light cilantro pesto. I'd consider adding even more vegetables next time (maybe some radish or carrot?). I did find that I needed more salt than the recipe called for, but I'm a heavy handed salter.

I think this one's a keeper.


  1. Cannot wait to try! Combines my love of noodles and easy recipes. Gonna try..I imagine some crunchy kale would be good in it too.

  2. I thought this was pretty good, although I added a lot more lemon and used fresh garlic.

  3. So happy you're back to posting!! I hope you're loving the new pad!

  4. Nice to see someone who is heavy handed with the salt like I am. Salt and lemon.
