A newfound love of Yuba Noodles.

A little ways back, I won a random Hodo contest on Instagram and received some seriously awesome stuff from them. A T-shirt, lunch box, tote bag, and a bunch of their food! I had already bought their Tofu products from my usual grocery store, and I absolutely fell in love with them, so this was all pretty cool. One thing that came in the package was Yuba noodles. I had not only no clue what these were, but I had never once heard of them. So I was equally both excited and nervous to even try them. But today was the day I decided to grab them out of the fridge and give ’em a try.

And my goodness it was so delicious! The Yuba was sesame flavored, which is always an iffy flavor for me, which was another reason I was a little bit apprehensive about trying these out but the back of the box suggested throwing them in a stir fry and I’ve never gone wrong with a stir fry before so I was game to try it out.

The meal took about maybe 20 minutes to throw together with a couple veggies from my fridge, and I easily had a delicious filling lunch with plenty for leftovers! It’s stir fry so you can add whatever kind of vegetables you’d like to BUT here’s what I did.

 

Ingredients: 

One package of Sesame Yuba Noodles 

1 cup of Broccoli

1 cup of Cauliflower

1/2 cup of Spinach

Fresh minced garlic 

Olive Oil

Salt

Cayenne 

 

I wish I had mushrooms to add to this, it would have been the cherry on top. But I opened the fridge and what I had left was not good anymore. Bummer. But nonetheless, the veggies I did have, did the trick.

Instructions

  • Put a bit of olive oil in the bottom of your pan
  • After the pan has warmed up on medium heat, add in the minced garlic
  • after the garlic begins to cook, add in the broccoli and the cauliflower
  • If you so choose, like I did, I added a little bit more olive oil on top of the broccoli and cauliflower.
  • Sprinkle some salt and cayenne and cover until the broccoli and cauliflower are softened. (I used frozen veggies so I let it sit for a little bit longer than you would have to if they were fresh, either would work).
  • Once the Broccoli and Cauliflower are softened, add in the frozen spinach. And recover for a minute or two.
  • If you think it’s necessary, you can, of course, add a little more salt or whatever spice you decided to use if you think the veggies need it, but the sesame “cream” flavor, I think, is enough.
  • Then the last step would be to add in the Yuba noodles and recover the stir fry just long enough to warm through the noodles. They can be eaten cold or warm, so I just wanted to warm them through.

 

As I said before, I was apprehensive about the sesame flavor because it hasn’t always been my favorite, but this time, I loved it. It wasn’t too much, it was just right. I also made way more than necessary for one person, so I have two more meals snapped away in containers for later, so I got three meals out of this one box, and for someone on a budget, that’s what I like to see.

Hodo has an incredible line of products that are absolutely worth a try. Their marinated tofu is outstanding; I have it at least a few times a week. I had my first tofu veggie burger through them, and it was absolutely delicious, and now, I can also say I’m a huge Yuba noodle fan. I know that I can find their products at my local target and market 32 and with a little research I’m sure you can find them somewhere near you as well.

Here’s a link to their website if you’re interested in learning more.

I launched Miss Raee in 2016 purely for a twenty-something girl who is trying to figure it all out, who loves to write and finally decided to share it. I’ve had a hell of a time figuring out what I wanted this blog to be, and I’ve eventually narrowed it down to that I want this blog to be ME, every weird, quirky, loveable aspect of me and even more importantly anyone who also sees themselves as that weird, quirky, loveable person who might love plant-based cooking, multiple fandoms including Star Wars, Supernatural, Greys Anatomy, DC TV, Marvel, The Magicians and SO much more. I found myself being an advocate for mental health, for animals, for the environment, and for equality. I’m a big believer in the vibes you bring, the power of music, and how important the storytelling of books and movies and TV can be. If I’m not on the blog, you can find me sharing selfies and nonsense on Instagram @/amandaraeex3 and live-tweeting and putting in my two cents on twitter at @/amandaraee_x3, so I hope you’ll tag along with me on here and my social media and enjoy all the weird, quirky things we all love.
