  • 4 tablespoon(s) gochujang sauce (gluten-free if preferred)
  • 3 tablespoon(s) hoisin sauce (gluten-free if preferred)

Instructions
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of light oil in a skillet over medium heat. Crumble the tofu directly into the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes until very dry and most of the moisture has gone.
  • While the tofu is cooking, prepare the udon noodles according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the gochujang, hoisin sauce, lime juice, zest, 1 clove of minced garlic, sesame oil and water. Set aside.
  • Heat the remaining tablespoon of light oil in a large skillet or wok. Add the carrots and white part of the bok choy and cook for 5 minutes, until just tender. Add in the udon noodles, remaining garlic clove, sauce, and green parts of the bok choy and toss, stirring frequently, for 2-3 minutes until the bok choy has wilted.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions, and serve hot.
