It’s been a long long long time since I posted a recipe. And hey, I’ve been working on one for a few days now and I think it’s pretty near perfect.
The main recipe is for the BBQ sauce, but I’ll show you an example of how it can be used. Let’s go!
Let’s first talk about ingredients…
1/3C Tamari (it’s like soy sauce, but much better)
3T Sugar (I use unrefined, no idea how white sugar would work)
2T Tomato Paste
1t Rice Vinegar (not regular vinegar)
1/2t Hing (also known as Asafoetida – if you don’t have it, do without)
1/2t Fresh Ginger (grate it – if you only have powder, use 1t of that)
1t Sesame Oil (hot sesame oil is great!)
1/2t Five Spice (it’s a mixture of star anise, cloves, cinnamon, Sichuan pepper and ground fennel)
1t Liquid Smoke (it’s BBQ sauce, afterall)
Mix it all together in a bowl with a whisk…
So do you want to see how to use it? Ok! Let us go!
Here’s what you’ll need…
The BBQ Sauce from above
Three kale leaves
One pound of extra firm tofu (maybe it’s 14oz, whatever)
Three dried Oriental chili peppers
Oil for some frying
Fry the tofu separately, please. And follow the directions for the noodles. It’s a good idea to maybe not cook them the whole way.
I’m actually quite surprised at how good this is.
Instead of rice noodles, you could just use rice. Or other stuff. Knock yourself out!
